Eclairage Public breaks down the percentage of obese individuals in each OECD country with its 'The Weight of Obesity' infographic.

The country to make it to the top of the list is the United States with a rate of 34%. This does not come as too much of a surprise as the States is known for its bevy of fast food options and adoration for anything fried. Japan, whose diet staples include fish and rice takes the spot as the least obese country with only 3%.

As the Weight of Obesity infographic can attest to, the growing and evolving increase in the obesity rate has made this topic a critical issue. It is especially important because this epidemic is severely putting people's lives and health severely at risk. Here's hoping that this infographic can provide a wide awakening for many.
