Secondly, weight issues have become the major health issue in the USA where 30.6 percent of the populations are obese. In contrast, there is no record of obesity in Burma according to world health statistic. This research suggests that Burmese people generally have fewer obesity-related problems. Finally, the minor issue related to health is drinking water supply in Burma, where 72 percent of drinking water is available. However, there is 100 percent of drinking water supply in the USA. This study reveals that sufficient water supply is still required for some of the nations in Burma. In conclusion, Burma seems to have more health problems related to public health spending than that of the USA where obesity is a growing problem. "Health Stats: Burma vs United States."

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
