"To keep the body in good health is a duty... otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear."
And it's not just about fat China. It's also fat India. And all those people who don't as much care about their obesity or health. I always believe that to be able to take care of someone else you first need to learn to take care of yourself and your health.
I've been recently very impressed by this book, Fat China, the summary of which says:
Fat China' provides an in-depth analysis of the growing problem of obesity and body image in China as urban lifestyles change and a sizeable middle class emerges. Rising obesity rates are examined in relationship to changing diets, modern lifestyles, investment from foreign fast food and supermarket retailers and urban planning. Crucial to this analysis is the likely effects on China's future development and already overburdened healthcare system.
