Description


Mexico is launching another war. This time against obesity. Fast catching up with its neighbour the U.S., Mexico is ranked second in the world in having the most number of obese. Thirty-seven million people is the current estimate. Mexico City's health officials fear a ticking time bomb. To address obesity, they recently opened a clinic dedicated to treating overweight patients. The clinic provides advice, free medical treatments and operations at a fraction of the cost in private hospitals.
