Obesity has DOUBLED in the last 20 years – with one in four people now dangerously fat
Some 58 per cent of women and 68 per cent of men are overweight or obese, new NHS figures show
“But we also need to confront the ‘obesogenic environments’ we’ve created that surround us with influences encouraging us to over-eat and under-exercise.
“So we should be
much tougher on shops selling junk food near schools
, limit the number of takeaways on our high streets and engineer our city centres so that there are fewer escalators so that we’re all incentivised to be more active.”
Timothy Craig Allen, M.D.,J.D.
