Spanish term or phrase: A sentence
La Argentina figura en el tercer puesto de obesidad infantil en America Latina, luego de Chile y Bolivia y solo en Tierra del Fuego...
Bonnie
Argentina ranks in the third place for child obesity, right behind Chile and Bolivia...
Explanation:
The rest of the sentence is truncated and I don't make sense of it. I don't know if it means that Tierra del Fuego (Patagonia) alone has a high incidence of child obesity or that actually it's rid of it...

You're very bueno! "y solo en Tierra del Fuego diversos estudios nutricionales detectaron un 8% de chico de 5 y 6 años y un 20% de adolescentes de entre 16 y 21 que padecen este desquilibrio ponderal." Probably "while in TdF alone..." Piense?
