The trouble with numbers....

This, from the EU's site today:

"There are already 3 million obese children in Europe and this figure is rising by an estimated 400,000 a year". Although presumably a fair few graduate to being obese adults every year?

And from February:

"A staggering (wobbling, surely?) 27% of men and 38% of women in the European Union are classified as obese. This figure does not include the 5 million children who suffer the same condition".

The first item then goes on to propose compulsory exercise etc etc and the second wanted to 'de-stigmatise' obesity by classing it as a chronic disease (yes, really), but both are far too dull to be worth investigating further.

If it weren't for socialised medicine, this would be of no interest to anyone.
