The one thing we've been saying for YEARS around here at FitPerez.com is that more countries need access to mass-produced donuts.
Well, it looks like someone was listening, because Krispie Kreme is about to open 80 stores in the country!
These will be added to the 690 stores in 21 countries world wide.
Like we said: finally.
Anyone else feel like places are just fine without it??

No matter what's going on in your life, it looks like we all have one MAJOR thing to be thankful for this Thanksgiving. The number of new HIV infections and deaths related to AIDS have dropped to their LOWEST numbers since the epidemic reached its peak!
The 2011 UNAIDS World AIDS Day report states that this year has been a "game-changing year" for the worldwide fight against the disease.
HIV infections dropped 21% compared to their highest in 1997, while AIDS deaths also declined by 21% since 2005.
Such an awesome note to end the year on!
There are many reasons for the decline including people having fewer sexual partners, using more condoms and, perhaps most importantly, "a massive scale up in access to HIV treatment."
Although the figures show we're turning the tide in the global fight against AIDS, the report suggests funding will need to be increased from $15 billion to $24 billion a year for our success against the disease to continue!

It’s mostly America’s fault, but obesity is quickly spreading.
Said Professor Majid Ezzati, senior author of a new study that revealed these findings:
"Our results show that overweight and obesity, high blood pressure and high cholesterol are no longer Western problems or problems of wealthy nations. Their presence has shifted towards low and middle income countries, making them global problems."
In 1980, 4.8% of men and 7.9% of women were obese. In 2008, 9.8% of men and 13.8% of women in the world were obese.
This is a global problem that starts with the individual. Start making better health choices — set an example for those around you!
