Video shows ranking for being overweight which is different from obese.

As we see in the video, American Samoa has the highest over weight rate of 94% in the world.   Babies just 15 months old were found to be classified as overweight (40 per cent of boys and 30 per cent of girl babies) according to a study.

Why is this happening in America Samoa?  It started with the U.S. dumping turkey tails, which are up to 40 percent fat on the island chain after World War II.  They consume 44 pounds of the turkey butts annually and local officials even tried to ban further imports in 2007 but Washington made them into back down.

Also, because most of the food in American Samoa is imported and expensive, the fast-food chains offer a cheaper food.
