The big question – whose fault is obesity?
For the last few years, the government has been encouraging us to avoid scoffing too many pizzas and burgers, and to exercise more to avoid becoming obese.
But now a government think-tank says obesity isn’t anyone’s fault – modern life causes the problem, not laziness or greed.
Health Secretary Alan Johnson has warned that the country faces an obesity timebomb as serious as climate change, that will bring illness and diseases and cost the country billions of pounds.
So whose fault is it? Is the report right by saying individuals are not to blame? Or is that a recipe for people to keep on eating their way to obesity?
