Jamie Oliver, Slams Coalition for Killing Britons with Health Policies
Government inaction over obesity is killing Britons, Jamie Oliver has claimed in a strong worded assault on the coalition’s public health policies.

When he referred to the Governments approach to the growing obesity crisis, Jamie Oliver, chef and prolific food campaigner, went further than his previous criticism of the health secretary Andrew Lansley and education secretary Michael Grove.

Jamie accused them of watering down policies to ensure certain school food appears healthy.

Speaking in Australia Jamie said “we are lacking real leadership in Britain, sadly it is killing us – literally.  That whole government – they lack an imagination."

Jamie Oliver was launching an addition to his network of Ministry of Food centres.

In October Jamie Oliver condemned health secretary Andrew Lansleys “national ambition” as worthless, regurgitated, patronising rubbish”.

The Department of Health responded by stating it intended to reduce obesity and save lives.  “We have strong plans to reduce levels of obesity by 2020.  These include giving councils a ring-fenced budget for public health, working with industry to show people how many calories are in the foods they eat and working with business on plans to help people eat fewer calories.  These are encouraging signs that the level of obesity amongst children, as a whole, is stabling”.

Jamie Oliver has been backed by food campaigners; they stated “Mr Oliver is absolutely right”.  Comments from Tam Fry, a spokesman for the National Obesity Forum and founder of the Child Growth Foundation, said “The Labour government had the grace to listen when we made the case in 2005 to feed pupils with healthy food.  But the current government has not.  When it was told by its own obesity advisers the measures it should continue with to make our children healthy, it not only did not listen but it fired the advisors”.

A diet of poor quality foods can lead to health problems and obesity.  To avoid becoming unhealthy or obese is to eat healthily and do regular exercise.  If a child becomes obese then it is more likely they will be an obese adult.  It is therefore very important for parents or guardian to set the right example to their child from an early age.

Over the past 20 years, childhood obesity has doubled.  Overweight children are more likely to develop serious health problems, including high cholesterol, high blood pressure, heart disease and type 2 diabetes.

Helping children to stay fit and healthy is not always easy.  It is so hard for them and us to resist the many unhealthy snacks, chocolate, crisps, biscuits, sweets and fast food outlets.  And getting them to move away from TV and console games can also be very tough.

You yourself may not be the most healthy and active person, but if your children can see you being more active and enjoying it - walking the dog, playing football, dancing, playing frisbee – anything to get outside in the fresh air with the kids to get some exercise.  Then your children will start to realise the importance of being fit and healthy.  It can also be a lot of fun and bring you and your children closer together.

The number of overweight and obese people is likely to increase.  The Foresight report a scientific report used to guide government policy has predicted that by 2030 nearly half of men and over third of woman will be obese.

Obesity is treated by losing weight.  Surgery can be used to treat people who are severely obese and have tried other methods of weight loss.

The only current prescription medicine for weigt loss is Xenical (orlistat) or Ally as it is known in a reduced strength pharmacy only medicine.

But with a healthy diet and exercise, hopefully extreme measures can be avoided.
