Along with half of Europe, but sees no health threat......Ha, just wait....

On Tuesday, a report by Britain's National Audit Office and others said the government could miss a target to halt the rise of obesity in children by 2010.

Britain has the highest levels of self-reported obese or overweight people in Europe and obesity costs the British taxpayer 1 billion pounds ($1.75 billion) per year. In 2003, 13.7 percent of youngsters were obese.

These latest reports are sure to be of concern to the European Commission, the European Union's executive arm, which will mark the first anniversary of its European platform on diet, nutrition and physical activity next month.
