75% people think they eat healthily but more than 50% of people are overweight.

Despite much evidence to the contrary, most American say they have a healthy diet and more than 4 out of 5 European Union citizens (83%) consider that what they eat is good for their health.1

The fact is that more than one in two adults and nearly one in six children are overweight or obese in most countries.2

Mirror mirror on the wall, who’s the fattest of them all?

The US has the highest level of obesity (38%), according to the OECD, followed by Mexico, New Zealand, Hungary and Australia.

The UK is the most obese country in western Europe.3 Its hard to believe but obesity in the UK has increased by 92% since the 1990s, the OECD’s report says.

Statistics showing one in five pregnant women have a BMI greater than 30 and official figures showing a record number of caesareans partly attributed to rising obesity levels. 4

Simply the numbers don’t add up

83% European think they eat healthy but over 50% of them are overweight. Obviously, something is wrong. 

It seems like we lost the ability to judge correctly whats right and healthy for us and what isn’t.

On the top of this, information sources are often misleading or incorrect. But if we use common sense, feed our body with raw and freshly cooked meals of the purest kinds, using plant based preferably organic skincare on our body, being active physically and mentally I believe we give ourself the best chance to live a happy, healthy and balanced life.

Imagine, what can end up in your lovely and expensive cream or body lotion!
