Today we’re going to talk about the fattest country in the world. In this country, the average person weighs 225 pounds. This country also has the highest rate of diabetes. Nauru, a small island in the South Pacific with a population of 11,000, is the fattest country in the world.

The island of Nauru was a rich source of phosphate and quickly became one of the richest countries in the world. When all of the phosphate was depleted from the land, the country went into a deep state of poverty where it has remained ever since.

Nauru’s obesity rate went from 2% to 61%. This was caused by the shift from a traditional diet of fish, coconuts, fruits, vegetables, taro, palm oil, and coconut oil without any grains or seed oils to a Westernized diet of processed foods.

Nauru’s soils have been depleted, so they’re no good for growing food. Over 40% of the marine life has been destroyed by pollution, and nearly 100% of the food is imported. Even water must be imported into Nauru.

Ultra-processed foods typically contain the following three types of ingredients that can cause many consequences for your health:
1. Artificial starches: Modified food starch, modified corn starch, maltodextrin
2. Synthetic sugars: Corn syrup, glucose syrup
3. Highly inflammatory seed oils: Corn, cottonseed, canola, soy, and safflower oils

Seed oils are the only trending item that parallels obesity, even more than sugar! They create nutritional deficiencies, inflammation, and cause you to feel hungry after eating.

  • @Amm6836 says:

    Deberg How do I get rid of the phytic acid found in black and white sesame seeds and flax seeds without losing their benefits? Is soaking at night and drying at low temperatures in the oven in the morning the correct method?❤

  • @Amm6836 says:

    Dr. Berg, what is the best time to take your curcumin supplement? I take two capsules daily in the morning with a spoonful of coconut oil and probiotics on an empty stomach to treat candida and stomach bacteria problems. Is this timing correct?❤

    • @fantasystar7777 says:

      I doubt he would answer. Just use sound judgement. At least your taking the right things.

      As for the morning, it makes sense to take somethings on an empty since your body is mostly empty. I take acv with lemon mainly in the morning with other things like vitamin c powder. But later in the day, I might just stick to acv with or without lemon.

    Dr. Berg
    I have been living in Costa Rica for 16 years, I have seen how the population have becoming fatter and fatter.

    They used to eat “tortillas” and they slowly slowly changed to bread. etc.

  • @experimenthealthyketo83 says:

    Could you talk about obesity in babies. I see this situation all over the place. Must be horrible for the babies…

  • @leticianedilskyj7060 says:

  • @RayaEagleWings says:

  • @WolfgangToeglhofer-gm9ep says:

    One question Eric (I am a medical doctor): what is the current/actual life expect in Nauru vis a vis the USA and vis a vis Japan. Please the facts

  • @Amethyst454 says:

    In an environment like that on Nauru, the only way to escape is to escape the island. No matter how much education they may get on better choices, it is worthless w/o being able to make those choices.

  • @daviddad1234 says:

    It is heartbreaking that greed and corruption destroyed what once was vibrant and healthy to a disease poverty state. Greed and corruption is ruining the entire planet. I am concerned for my young grand children will grow up on a planet that can no longer be regenerated.

      Thank you for watching, got some profitable insight to share with you…

    • @nevastrong2850 says:

      Bill Gates is doing all this right now. Proposing processed packets of meals that are “good for the environment” yet are ultra processed for our health. Look into it and you can start piecing it together.

  • @duzyduz1 says:

    It’s a crime on what they are putting in our foods. The food industry and the government need to be held accountable

    • @Tap-Profile-send-Text124 says:

      Thank you for watching, got some profitable insight to share with you….

    • @rand49er says:

      We need education. We also need to hold pop culture to blame.

    • @starnorth931 says:

      Only real men would hold these criminals accountable, there are no real men left, a real man DOES NOT do nothing, all we do are watch other men on tv throw and kick and hit balls, bread and circuses…

  • @dishavz says:

    Hi Dr.Berg, what’s your opinion on peanut oil? In my state it’s consumed in very high quantities, though it is seed oil, is it that bad as other seed oils? Thanks

  • @victortai886 says:

    Nauru just broke diplomatic ties with Taiwan days ago and I was wondering what this country is about and Dr Berg makes this video. Thanks Dr Berg for always knowing what we need. Love from Taiwan❤

  • @jamezworth6042 says:

    Thank you Dr. Berg❤. Yes these foods and oils are HIGHLY inflammatory. These highly processed seed oils should ONLY be used for machinery lubricants.
