Survey: obesity levels stop rising

The levels of overweight and obesity in the Czech Republic have stopped rising, according to a new survey commissioned by the public health insurer, VZP. The survey found that 21 percent of Czechs are obese while another 34 percent are overweight, the same numbers that were recorded in a similar study three years ago. There are now fewer obese and overweight women whereas the number of overweight and obese men grew slightly. The survey also found that 20 percent of women aged 18 and 19 were underweight.
