Obesity in the Middle East

 

By Chris Jarratt of Bariquins (February 2017)

To continue with a look at the frequency of obesity around the world (I’ve already covered Europe and the American states), I thought that this month that I would concentrate on the Middle Eastern countries which incorporates the Gulf states too. In general, the term ‘Middle East’ covers the area from Turkey, Cyprus and Egypt in the west of the region, to Iran and Oman on the eastern side. North to south, it stretches from Turkey and Iran, down to Yemen. Sometimes, other countries are included in the group but for…

New Year, New Start for Bariquins

 

By Chris Jarratt of Bariquins (January 2017)

 

Just a brief blog for the start of 2017. As the New Year starts, Bariquins are in the midst of a slight change of accommodation. We're moving Barry and Benny.

Our suite number is now

Unusual Ways of Rescuing People Suffering From Obesity

 

By Chris Jarratt of Bariquins (December 2016)

Obesity in the US: State by State

 

By Chris Jarratt of Bariquins (November 2016)
