OBESE WILL BANKRUPT NHS read the Sunday Express yesterday. Apparently Britain has the highest number of obese adults in Europe. Not stopping there the paper claims that 25% of our children are obese too! A good look round the playground this morning however found not the slightest case of junior rotundity. So where are they hiding I wonder?
The article tells us that the fast food industry influences negative eating patterns and the government should really do something to stop them manipulating us into eating the wrong foods. (What? The five-a-day campaign didn't work?)
Earlier this year it seems that Health Secretary Andrew Lansley asked some makers of fast food to do something about this awful trend until it was revealed that Mr Lansley was being paid a lot of money by an advertising agency that represents several fine purveyors of junk food including one known for confectionary.
So today I guess the only logical thing for the Daily Express to do was give us a voucher for a free box of choccies!
