Japan, which still have obesity rates below the world average, is likely to also face the problem of increasing population with weight above the standard. In recent decades the traditional Japanese way of power has changed with the adoption of fast foods.

Today the country now has obesity rates higher juvenile, though smaller than those of the United States or Brazil, because the older population can maintain the standard traditional Japanese food, which values ​​the consumption of fish and vegetables, said Lício Augusto Velloso, professor of the Faculty of Medical Sciences, State University of Campinas (Unicamp). He gave a lecture at the Japan-Brazil Symposium on Scientific Collaboration, organized by FAPESP and by the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) at Rikkyo University, with support from the Embassy of Brazil in Tokyo.

The Japanese are worried about this phenomenon. Once children and youth adjust to an eating pattern is very difficult to make return to the traditional style of food, he said.

Changes in eating patterns worldwide from the 1950s have made obesity a disease become epidemiologically important worldwide. At the same time that the big food industries began to develop technologies that have improved food production also registered an increase in composition of saturated fat in the diet of the population of many countries.
