Overall weight of Earth’s population: Americans are the heaviest

Researchers have estimated that the overall weight of Earth’s population is about 287 million tons, as reported by the BBC.

An average adult weighs 62 kg, however in the USA this figure is one-third more.

If the average worldwide weight for adults were the same as in the US, the resulting weight would be equivalent to a population increase of 1 billion people.
