Weird Laws Around the World
You are forbidden to be fat in Japan. Although their country already has one of the worlds lowest obesity rates (less than 5 per cent, in contrast to the USAs 35 per cent), that didnt stop Japanese lawmakers from setting a maximum waistline size in 2009. Every man aged 40 and over must not have a waist measuring 80cm or above, every woman, 90cm or above. And this from the land that brought us sumo wrestling.
