Phat Tuesday

It's International Women's Day and Fat Tuesday. And we're in Mexico. Today's quickfire challenge: combine these three facts into a blog post in less than - Bzzzzzzz!. Oh, my, it looks like we already have a winner.

Mexican Women, the World's Most Overweight.

Mexican women are the most overweight in the world. and the statistics for maternal mortality and breast, cervical and uterine cancer are also high.

In honor of International Women's Day, the Health Ministry reports that around 36,000 Mexican women die each year from diabetes...

In Mexico, 30% of the population is obese, and 70% overweight. 72% of adult women are overweight...

In 2009 there were 1,207 women who died during childbirth, "which, when compared with the country's level of economic growth, is inexplicable and inconceivable."

Piece o' cake...
