The Wider Image: Temptation everywhere: Mexican children struggle with obesity
Food that contains approximately 8,200 calories that Samuel, 47, would typically consume in one day before he had brain surgery following a stroke, is displayed for a photograph at his home in Mexico City, Mexico, February 3, 2021. "I regret not taking care of myself, on having annual check-ups like blood tests to check my sugar levels, cholesterol," said Samuel. "With obesity, I developed diabetes and had an operation on my head for a blood clot due to a stroke." Nutritionist Betzabe Salgado, who works at the Hospital Infantil de Mexico Federico Gomez, calculated the calorie amount. REUTERS/Carlos Jasso SEARCH "JASSO OBESITY" FOR THIS STORY.
