Have you ever heard of the word “obesity”? It’s a big word that means having too much body fat, and it’s becoming a big problem all around the world.

In fact, a new report by the World Obesity Federation warns that more than half of the world’s population will be considered obese or overweight by 2035 if we don’t do something about it. That’s more than 4 billion people affected!

The report says that rates of obesity are rising the fastest among children, which is really worrying. In just a few years, rates of obesity are expected to double among both boys and girls. Yikes!

The report also says that countries in Africa and Asia are expected to see the greatest rise in obesity. This is because people are eating more processed foods, being less active, and not getting enough help from healthcare services.

Not only is obesity bad for your health, but it’s also bad for the economy. The report says that it will cost more than $4 trillion every year by 2035. That’s a lot of money!

So, what can we do about it? The report says that governments and policymakers need to take action now to stop obesity from getting worse. This includes making healthier foods available, encouraging people to be more active, and helping people learn about good health habits.

Remember, being healthy is important for your body and mind. So let’s all work together to ensure we stay healthy and happy!
