My aim is to provide a healthier option to the rapidly growing chains of fast food and takeaways that are opening around Britain. In my own words Britain is becoming ''Americanized''
Obesity is vastly growing issue around the western world and now the same problem is arising around the UK.
It's a common problem, estimated to affect around one in every four adults and around one in every five children aged 10 to 11 in the UK.
Taking steps to tackle obesity is important because, in addition to causing obvious physical changes, it can lead to a number of serious and potentially life-threatening conditions, such as:
- type 2 diabetes
- coronary heart disease
- some types of cancer, such as breast cancer and bowel cancer
Obesity can also affect your quality of life and lead to psychological problems, such as low self-esteem or depression.
Around half of British adults are overweight, and 17 per cent of men and 21 per cent of women are obese.
Studies have found that up to 400,000 deaths each year in the EU are directly linked to excess weight.
In around 70 per cent of overweight-linked cases, the final cause of death was heart disease and in 20 per cent, it was cancer
Obesity costs £2.6 billion a year in NHS bills and indirect losses to the economy.
Other studies have shown that the percentage of overweight children in Britain has virtually doubled in the last decade.
Doctors say that being obese when you are 40 knocks up to seven years off your life.
Obese people who smoke will die more than 13 years before their time
Act now and help me to make a footprint to tackling the growing problems of obesity after all this is OUR CHILDRENS and OUR CHILDRENS CHILDREN who this will effect in the long run if no action is taken.
Although just the one shop opening locally will not make a HUGE impact for the whole of Britain but is the first step to one of many in the right direction.
Maybe it being highly successful will encourage others to convert or open similar shops or enable me the opportunity to open more shops in various town spread out across the regions.
I'd like to thank you all in advance for reading this campaign and hopefully you will be a part in helping me take a step to tackling the growing problem OBESITY!
