Ireland is predicted to have the largest obese population in Europe by 2030

Results of a research have suggested that by the year 2030 the present percentage of people who are obese in the whole of Europe will be mostly found in Ireland. With 90 percent of men and 84 percent of women will be either "overweight" or "obese" in Ireland by the year 2030 and this will the largest in Europe.

England wasn't far behind with approximately 75 percent of men and 64 percent of women being overweight by 2030. These figures show that there has been an important rise in the number with 66 percent men who are obese or overweight and 57 percent women who are fat. 

Experts on health opined that there is no one step solution to this growing problem. The in-charge of the study, Dr. Laura Webber, feels that one of the most effective ways to fight the obesity epidemic could be reducing binging on junk food and soda.

She said in addition to this people also need to back it up with fruits and vegetables and a serious change of food habits.

Dr Webber said that their study presents a disturbing picture of increasing obesity across Europe. She says that there is, therefore, an urgent need to execute policies to reverse this trend.
