Published February 14th, 2000 - 02:00 GMT

Kuwaitis eating habits have turned them into the world's heaviest people and increased their exposure to numerous health risks, including teeth decay and diabetes.  

 

According to Mr. Abdulwahhab Issa, a lecturer at the Medicine College in the University of Kuwait, it is imperative to teach Kuwaiti mothers on the proper quality and quantity of foods that should be fed to their children. He said the country should set the goal of reducing the number of overweight people to 20 percent of all adult and 15 percent among children.
