Obesity

What are the facts? Obesity is an increasingly common problem here in the UK - in fact obesity levels have more than trebled in the last 30 years, prompting fears that we are becoming the "fat man of Europe". With 24.9% of the UK population being obese, we're ahead of countries such as Spain (24.1), Germany (21.3%), Sweden (16.6%) and France (15.6%). And with current estimates predicting that more than half of the population could be obese by 2050, obesity is a very real long-term problem.
