Problems With Prosperity

It seems that as globalization has brought increased prosperity to poor nations, it has brought something else with it – obesity.

Around the globe, obesity has become a problem for many poorer women in most countries with upper-middle income national economies and even some with lower-middle income economies, an important new international study concludes.

Increasing obesity threatens to undermine the health of women in nations previously not known for a growing percentage of overweight citizens, the researchers say. As the amount of available food grows in most countries, the condition is becoming a greater issue for poorer women than for richer ones.

Maybe the protectionists can make the whole globalization debate into one about health.
