17 per cent of the population suffering from diabetes

I could be in the wrong forum if so mods will you please move this to the right forum?

Qataris are developing diabetes a decade younger than average, which, in turn, is pushing up rates of illnesses like hypertension, partial paralysis, heart disease, and blindness.

The nation also suffers from a high rate of birth defects and genetic disorders - which experts put down to the custom of inter-marriage between close family members and cousins.

I hear arab banjo music!

I thought the U.S. was the richest country and I thought we were the fattest. I guess the two go hand in hand.
