"...Fight the Obesity Epidemic spokeswoman Dr Robyn Toomath said the Government had barely acknowledged obesity as an issue. It had increased funding for Kiwisport in schools, but there was no evidence that participation in sport affected obesity levels.

I'm calling 'bullshit' on this one.
NOBODY forced you to eat. When your fat arse got too wide for your clothes- THEN was when you got the warning sign to change your ways.
Never mind you THOUGHT you were eating right. You were wrong.
Research- learn a bit about diet and nutrition and amend your ways.
or chose not to- it's YOUR choice.
And YOUR consequences to live with.
