"It seems that achieving this goal would also benefit everyone. Why is not more done?
"There is no magic bullet to reverse the increase in childhood obesity, but the government's plan for childhood obesity should deliver a set of measures that could have a significant impact together, such as calorie restriction, ban on junk Food at the coffers and children's energy drinks, calorie labeling on restaurants and cafes menus and the expansion of soft drinks industrial dispensing on sugary milk drinks.
The British food and beverage industry shortens the lives of children by three years by she feeds them with sugar, salt and fat, which makes it too easy for them to become overweight, and it is immoral not to take any action and force the industry to help improve child health. "

WHAT IS OBESITY? AND WHAT ARE I HEALTH RISKS?
Obesity is defined as an adult with a BMI of 30 or more.
The BMI of a healthy person – calculated by dividing the weight in kg by the size in meters and the answer by the size again – is between 18.5 and 24.9.
Among children, obesity is defined as the 95th percentile.
Percentiles compare adolescents with other children in the same age.
For example, if a three-month age is in the 40th percentile by weight, it means that 40 percent of three-month olds weigh the same or less than that baby.
About 58 percent of women and 68 percent of men in the UK are overweight or obese.
The disease costs the NHS approximately £ 6.1 billion annually from its approximate budget of £ 124.7 billion.
This is due to obesity, which increases the risk of a number of life-threatening illnesses.
What are the diseases Type 2 diabetes, which can lead to kidney disease, blindness and even amputation of the limbs.
According to research, at least one in six hospital beds in the UK is used by a diabetic patient.
Obesity also increases risk In the UK, 315,000 people die of heart disease each year. This makes it the most common cause of death.
The carrying of dangerous amounts by weight has also been linked to 12 different cancers.
