Well I say what a load of cobblers. You are what you eat and no one forces food into your mouth. This is not a nation of fools. We are all more than aware what food types are likely to make us fat if we eat too much of them. The only people who are not personally responsible for being fat are young children, in which case the blame is 100% on their parents.
I totally agree that this is a major problem. It is estimated that obesity will cost the country £46bn by 2047 if the country continues to get fat at the same rate we are seeing now.
We need to put an end to all the myths about being fat. It is not so much to do with glands or genes, but it is to do with how much food you cram into your cake hole and how long you spend sat on your arse.
Does this new Politically correct world have anything to do with this problem? I was a teenager in the 80's with plenty of access to junk food, but my school was not awash with fat kids. There could be one good reason for that and it's not very PC: fat kids got the piss taken out of them.
Any Liberals can leave their wishy washy complaints in the comments.
