VICE: Fast Food of Arabia now on YouTube

Post by Mark

In case you didn’t watch the episode last April when it was first aired on HBO, VICE have released the episode “Fast Food of Arabia” that features Kuwait onto YouTube. Here is a summary of the episode:

As Americans become increasingly health-conscious and junk food sales plateau in the States, fast food companies are spreading to new global markets, expanding their revenue — and the waistlines of their customers.

VICE correspondent Gianna Toboni travels to Kuwait, now one of the most obese countries on the planet, to witness the health effects on a country deep in the throes of an unlikely obsession with U.S. fast food.

    USA has the highest amount of obese people in the world but if you break it down based on per capita, than Kuwait is higher than USA. According to World Rankings USA is 33% & Kuwait is 39%. Ive noticed USA becoming alot more health concerned in the last few years. Qatar is #8 in the world & Kuwait is #11 in the world.
