    Almost one in two Taiwanese are overweight or obese: Health Promotion Administration (2020/11/22)

    One in two adult Taiwanese are overweight or obese. That's according to the Health Promotion Administration. It says the proportion of the population with a BMI of over 24, which indicates a person is overweight, reached 47%, a record high. Let's hear what a Taipei doctor had to say about this.

    We know that with obesity, the first thing that causes it is eating more while exercising less. The current environment and the ease of living also play a role. Previously, people probably needed to walk long distances to go to class. Now there are the MRT and buses, so the first thing is that people’s physical activities have been reduced. Secondly, the consumption of sugary drinks is excessive.

    The doctor stressed that in addition to genetic factors, the causes of obesity are mainly related to diet, the amount of exercise a person gets, and overall lifestyle. Aside from having a balanced diet, more exercise is needed to combat obesity so as to avoid reduced immunity, which may lead to disease.
