It doesn't seem so bad, when you are thinking that a BMI of 25 is just kind of overweight. If you are 5'8" and 170 lbs. you are there.
But then I realized that this reflects a percentile scale/bell curve distribution. I would hope that MOST people are not that overweight or MORE. You really want to see the percentile number at less than 50% at a minimum, likely less depending on the standard deviation of the distribution. It's not a surprise to see the USA up there with Samoa, but boy oh boy, only five out of every twenty people is even normal weight!
