Fat Britain epidemic

Fat Britain epidemic: Obese kids in UK set to rise by 1.3 MILLION in 10 years

BRITAIN is on the brink of an obesity epidemic as the number of fat children is set to rise by 1.3 MILLION by 2025, new research claims.

Co-author of the study, Dr Tim Lobstein, said the forecasts should sound an alarm bell for health service managers and health professionals, who will have to deal with this rising tide of ill health following the obesity epidemic.
“In a sense, we hope forecasts are wrong: they assume current trends continue, but we are urging governments to take strong measures to reduce childhood obesity and meet their agreed target of getting the levels of childhood obesity down to 2010 levels before we get to 2025.”
