Interesting Fact - Health

According to a report by the WHO (World Health Organisation) 74% of men and 64% of women in the UK will be overweight by 2030.

(That's almost three-quarters of men and two-thirds of women in the UK are on their way to being overweight within 15 years.

Medically speaking, being “overweight” is defined as having a BMI (Body Mass Index) of between 25 and 29.9.  Being  “obese” is defined by a BMI of 30 and above.

Worryingly other European countries are facing growing obesity problems including Greece, Spain, Austria, the Czech Republic and even Sweden.  

The only European country to escape is the Netherlands.  Must be all those bikes.)
