PRLog - Feb. 10, 2011 - STRATFORD-UPON-AVON, U.K. -- Shocking research has revealed that the UK is a nation of severely obese people. So many that the UK’s Ambulance Service are having to invest millions to upgrade their fleet to accommodate larger patients.
Figures from the Office for National Statistics show that 24.5 per cent of adults in England were classed as obese in 2008, amounting to an 8.8 per cent increase since 1994 when only 15.7 per cent of adults were classed as dangerously overweight.
According to the World Health Organisation, also known as WHO, the UK has featured far more frequently in their top 10 most obese nations list in the last few years.
Recent statistics show that 46 per cent of men in England and 32 per cent of women in England classes as overweight and an additional 17 per cent of men and 21 per cent of women classed as obese it is hardly surprising that the NHS has seen an increase in the number of surgical procedures performed on obese patients in the last five years.

Unlike quitting smoking, it’s easier to say, I will never touch another cigarette ever again, but the same cannot be said to someone that is addicted to food.”
