Israel’s Tequila loses weight, loses weight
Israel’s iconic brand Tequila has been shedding pounds for years and is shedding some more.
The drink maker announced on Wednesday that it has lost some 4,000 pounds since 2015.
Israel’s Ministry of Health announced the weight loss earlier in the day.
Tequila currently sells in Israel at about $1,500 per bottle, and the loss in sales is part of a wider trend in the sector.
Israel has been hit by a wave of alcohol related violence in recent years, with attacks on tourists, tourists and the media, as well as the killing of several Israelis.
The country has seen the murder rate increase over the past few years, and has been on the receiving end of several attacks in the past two months, including a knife attack at a bar in the Israeli city of Jerusalem.
Israel is not the only country grappling with its obesity epidemic, as the United States and other Western countries have also seen a rise in obesity.
Last year, the United Nations reported that the number of adults and children in the world living with a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or higher increased by more than 50 percent between 2000 and 2015.
