More than half of the world's population will be overweight or obese by 2035, according to a new report.
The World Obesity Federation predicts that 51% of the world, or more than 4 billion people, will be obese or overweight within the next 12 years.
\Describing the data as a "clear warning", Louise Baur, president of the World Obesity Federation, said policymakers must act now to prevent the situation from worsening.
The report found that childhood obesity could more than double from 2020 levels, to 208 million boys and 175 million girls by 2035.
The report also found that almost all of the countries expected to see the largest increase in obesity in the coming years are low- or middle-income countries in Asia and Africa.
