Counting the Calories by EarthHart

Counting the Calories

by EarthHart in Street & Street Portraiture

The young woman was caught as I left the Pasty Shop.
Obesity is becoming a global problem. Fast food outlets have taken over feeding school kids. If only school canteens cooked decent fresh food at affordable prices.
Everyday, in Wells, I see many overweight people, and the numbers are climbing. In the years to come, the health services around the world will be facing more casualties of obesity than has ever been known. The costs will be astronomical if governments don't take a stand against this.

    Exellent photo. In the first place, it is the responsibility of the person himself and the parents (with younger children). You can't blame everything on the government or make them responsible. But it is a big problem and the healthcare will be very expensive.

      Thanks a lot for the favour, Squire
      I'm not blaming it all on the governments, family social structures are just as much at fault, along with education.

    yes..... i absolutely agree with your comment.... you are totally right... here in school we teach the children about fresh food etc..... but it is a little drop upon a hot stone...
