The Spanish Health Ministry has released a study showing that the number of overweight and obese people in Spain has doubled over the course of the last 18 years. The Ministry began a study in 2003 in which, of a random sample, 13.6 percent of people were obese and 38.6 percent of people were overweight.
The Nutrition and Obesity Prevention Strategy (NAOS) will try to lower these figures, which it says are due in large part to increased consumption of fast food and frozen meals. The NAOS will ask the fast food industry to lower sodium content by 10 percent and try to initiate health programs and healthy snacks in elementary school around Spain.
