Anyone speak Italian?

Google translate gives "l'epodemia di obesita" as the rough translation of "Obesity Epidemic." Is this correct?

Yeah, "epodemia" seems like a typo.

I'm Italian, it's definitely "epidemia".

Also, obesità should have an accent over the final letter. The correct phrase in its entirety is epidemia di obesità.
