According to the Head of National Health Science, England, Obesity has become the ‘new smoking’ problem in terms of its negative impact on health.

Regular walking or cycling, limiting the amount of fast food, opting to use the stairs instead of the lift and cutting down on calorific foods such as fried foods, fatty items, biscuits and sweets are simple everyday measures you can begin with.
