The Germans are Fat

Remember Hitler's vision of the German super race? The blond, blue-eyed "Aryans" who would rule the world? Well, years of war, division, and now reunification have made the Germans fat according to a group's press release.

Seventy-five percent of men and fifty-nine percent of women are overweight in Germany. Germany managed to surpass the trio of the United Kingdom, Cyprus, and the Czech Republic. The thinest European Union countries are France (guess French women really do not get fat) and Italy. However, these two countries still have numbers around forty percent fat. A full breakdown by country is available via Spiegel Online.

Note: To be fair, Americans are still fatter with seventy-fiver percent (!!!) of Americans overweight.
