Hungary An Unhealthy Country – WHO
"Hungary is one of the world’s least healthy countries, radio station the Voice of America quoted World Health Organisation (WHO) national coordinator Zsófia Pusztai, as saying.

Unhealthy lifestyles, a lack of participation in sport and large consumption of alcohol, tobacco and fatty foods are to blame, she said.

In Hungary five million people are overweight, three million depressed, one million have diabetes and 650,000 have tuberculosis, Pusztai added."
