Today is the start of the 2018 European Congress on Obesity, an annual multi-day gathering of experts from all over the world that deals with the topic of obesity. And in the initial keynotes some absolutely mind-blowing projections were presented.
In the United States, the researchers found obesity will increase from 39 percent of the population in 2017 to 55 percent in 2045, and diabetes from 14 percent to 18 percent.
In Britain, the proportion will swell from 32 percent to 48 percent, with the incidence of diabetes rising from 10.2 percent to 12.6 percent.
Additionally, they project that over 22% of the entire world population will be obese in the same time-frame.
There is sure to be a lot more information presented at this Congress and I will be watching carefully for any information related to NASH to share here.
