Some people calling themselves the "Bureau of Investigative Journalism" have fallen at the first hurdle:
Britain is getting fatter.
This is not true.
...the latest figures show that obesity amongst men has fallen to 22% and the female obesity rate has fallen to 24%.
Now let's be clear that there was a dramatic increase in levels of obesity but it is now falling. On almost every measure, rates are falling and have been for at least three years:
The rapid rise in child obesity may be levelling off, according to figures. Experts looked at data forecasting levels of childhood obesity to 2020. Analysis indicated a 17 per cent drop in the forecast number of overweight girls aged two to 11 and a 4 per cent drop in the expected numbers of obese girls of the same age. There was a 5 per cent drop in the forecast number of overweight boys, and a 7 per cent drop in the forecast numbers of obese boys.
And you call yourself investigative journalists - can't you even check a few simple facts?
