The Irish are on their way to becoming the most obese in Europe. Eating a healthy diet and maintaining stable blood sugar levels seems more relevant than ever, and this is where chromium fits nicely into the picture.
Ireland is predicted to become the most obese country in Europe, together with the UK, according to a new study that is published in the Lancet.
By 2025, the authors predict that 37 per cent of Irish women and 38% of Irish men will be obese. Nearly 20 per cent of the world’s obese adults currently live in Ireland and five other high-income English-speaking countries, and the number of obese people in the world has increased from 105 million (1975) to 641 million (2014).
