- 2.2 billion people in the world are overweight or obese.
- Egypt is on the top country with the highest percentage of obese adults while U.S. has the highest percentage of children.
- A rising number of deaths is resulting from diseases attributable to obesity.

According to a new study published Monday in the New England Journal of Medicine, about 30% (2.2 billion people) of the world's population is affected by weight problems, with 10% listed as obese. People were classified as overweight if their body mass index was in the 25 to 29 range, while obesity is defined as anyone with a BMI of 30 or more. 600 million adults and 150 million children have body mass index numbers above 30, which is a metric used to determine obesity.

The results show "a growing and disturbing global public health crisis," according to the study.

The United States had the highest percentage of obese children and young adults at nearly 13%, while Egypt had the highest number of adults at 35%. Bangladesh had the lowest rates of obese children, and Vietnam the lowest number in adults which are about 1% in both country.

The U.S., with 79.4 million, had the most obese adults, followed by China. The research found obesity has tripled in youth and young adults in countries such as China, Brazil and Indonesia.
