    The prevelance of obesity may be even higher -- 26 percent higher in men and 30 percent higher in women -- than has been reported due to people underreporting their weight and overreporting their height according to a study from The Netherlands.

    The study involved 1809 men and 1882 women ages 20- to 59-years-old from The Netherlands who first self-reported their height and weight and then had it measured.
