By joegrimjow, on December 9th, 2010
Tahniah pada Malaysia kerana mengurangkan ranking dari no 1 tergemuk di Asia kepada no 6 sekarang. Walaupun ranking itu turun, tapi gaya hidup rakyat Malaysia tidak semestinya semakin sihat. Kalau tengok statistik terbaru, kerajaan runsing dengan 20.7% pelajar di Malaysia adalah overweight pada 2001 dan terbaru 2007 peratusan itu meningkat kepada 26.5%! Nampaknya kena buat sesuatu kepada pelajar U Malaysia ni
Kita kena cadangkan pada kerajaan supaya survey 10 tahun sekali ni dibuat 5 tahun sekali supaya figure tu lagi kena dengan keadaan semasa
PUTRAJAYA, Malaysia, Dec. 8 (Xinhua) -- Malaysia is ranked sixth among Asian countries with high adult obesity rate, according to the World Health Organization (WHO).
Malaysian Health Minister Liow Tiong Lai told a press conference in Malaysia's federal administration center here on Wednesday that the weight of Malaysian students were also on an increasing trend.
While 20.7 percent of Malaysian students were overweight in 2001, Liow said that the National Health and Morbidity Survey 2006 had forecast that the percentage would rise to 26.5 in 2007.
The survey, third of its kind, is done every 10 years in Malaysia, with the first one done in 1986.
Liow said that 60 percent of Malaysians aged 18 and above had a body mass index (BMI) of over 23.
The BMI is a heuristic measure of body weight based on a person 's weight and height. While the range between 23 and 24.9 indicates overweight, a reading above 25 means obese.
Liow said that it was critical for the Malaysian government to tackle the problem as obese individuals encountered higher risks of developing chronical diseases, which would in turn affect the country's productivity.
The minister also pointed out that Malaysians poor eating habits was worrying as their high consumption of fat and meat would lift their body weights, resulting in them developing diseases such as diabetes, heart attack, kidney disease, high cholesterol and high blood pressure.
Malaysia, a multi-racial and multi-cultural country, is famous for its varieties of food.
However, doctors and consumers' associations in the country have reminded that food-stalls operating around the clock in the country indirectly "help" Malaysians cultivate the unhealthy habit of taking supper.
Lack of exercise is also deemed a reason contributing to the high obesity rate of the country.
Liow said his ministry and other relevant agencies would review the National Nutrition Action Plan for 2006 to 2015 to promote healthy lifestyle among Malaysians.
Starting from 2011, the authority would also focus on the nutrition intake of children aged between seven and 12, while educating them the proper eating habits, added Liow.
According to the WHO, 400 million adults worldwide were obese in 2005. If no remedial actions are taken, the number is expected to surge to 700 million in 2015.
