There are now 2.1 billion people who are overweight in the world. China and India are number one and two in the world in sheer number of type 2 diabetics. In the Middle East and North Africa, rates of diabetes are rapidly increasing. It is estimated that we could spend $47 trillion over the next 20 years on lifestyle preventable chronic disease -- more than the annual GDP of the six largest economies combined.
Obesity and its related diseases are among the greatest threats to economic development. America has created arguably the worst diet in the world and is exporting it to every country on the planet. North Korea and Cuba are the only nations on Earth without Coca Cola.
