Gloucestershire, England -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/30/2016 -- It has recently been reported that 1.6 million children are overweight by the time they reach high school and it has been said that obese children will still be obese in adulthood, consequently putting them at risk of numerous diseases such as cancer and diabetes. There are thirteen different types of cancer which is linked to being overweight, for example, bowel and breast cancer.
The increase in number for child obesity has been said to rise because of children consuming too much junkfood, drinking sugary drinks and not being active enough. It has been said that by 2020 there will be one in five girls who are either overweight or obese. Therefore, making many people worry about how much the NHS will have to pay out is these statistics to occur.
A spokesperson from Burleigh Travel had this to say, "Everyone at Burleigh Travel were extremely shocked and concerned when we heard about these statistics, not only does it increase chance of diseases such as cancer, putting them at risk to a shorter life expectancy, but consequently leads to an unhealthy life style.
