Heaviest Women 2012

Obesity is cultural rather than genetic;
yet; genes would mutate with cultural oppressions..
There are many funny proverbs related to fatness,
which would make your day.. and tomorrow..!!


Bloomberg ranked countries on average adult-female weight and calculated the pound-loss necessary to reach the upper level of "normal."


Weights were calculated by adapting the standard BMI formula: BMI = (weight in pounds / (height in inches x height in inches)) x 703. BMI is an index of weight-to-height used to classify adults as underweight, overweight or obese. Average adult BMI data were collected from the World Health Organization. Sources for average adult height data included OECD Society at a Glance (for OECD and Asia/Pacific countries) and MEASURE DHS, a survey project funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development. To extrapolate 2012 BMI, a simple linear trend was applied to BMI statistics from 1980 to 2008, the most recent data available. Ranking included countries with at least 1.5 million male and female adults and with complete BMI data from 1980 to 2008.
