In almost all countries the proportion of overweight and obesity in males was projected to increase – to reach 75% in UK, 80% in Czech Republic, Spain and Poland, and 90% in Ireland, the highest level calculated. Women fare a little better. In reviewing the results, the lead researcher said: “Our study presents a worrying picture of rising obesity across Europe. Policies to reverse this trend are urgently needed.”
