Is it just as bad in the UK as it is here in the USA? Every town even some with pops in the hundreds has a fast food place.

I agree with you but some obesity cases are cause by genes, others is nutrition, but understand when you see an obese child most of the time the entire family is obese to.
My daughter have friends that eat only on restaurants, when she ask them if they have food to eat at home they said, yes they do but do not eat it, when she ask them if the mother or father cooks at home they said that they have not time, then she ask if they cook themself they reply that they don't know how to cook but they can bake cookies. Amazing!!!!!!!
