Dieting trends in China: A74-3/2014-1E-PDF

"China is the world’s most-populous nation. Data gathered by China’s National Bureau of Statistics, showed just over 690 million Chinese live in urban areas, compared to approximately 656 million in the countryside. Science Daily (May 2010) published a report finding a link between obesity and urban living, where access to sugary foods and high-fat diets are most prevalent and causing a world-wide trend. As recently as 2011 some reports claim the number of obese people living in China has increased to 100 million (US-China Today, April 8, 2011)"--Executive summary, p. [1].
