Obesity now kills 3 times more people than malnutrition!

I am so stunned I had to write about this. I recently read in The Week magazine that obesity is not only a global epedemic, but it is now responsible for more deaths than malnutrition!
This is a frightening statistic!

"For the first time in history, overeating is now more of a global health threat than hunger. More than 3 million deaths in 2010 were attributable to excess body weight, three times the death toll due to malnutrition, according to the medical journal, The Lancet."
