Children living near fast food joints more likely to get obese

Researchers from the University of the West of England conducted a study tracking the weight of more than 1500 primary school students aged 4-11 to see if the distance to the nearest fast food joint has any effect on children's weight. And surprise, surprise, it does. The study 'revealed' that children living near fast food joints are more likely to gain weight than those living farther away from the 'establishments'.

The lead researcher, Matthew Pearce, said that "We know from national data that the number of children classified as obese doubles between the first and last year of primary school. Understanding the reasons for this is important to protect the future health of children," and that "Our study adds to existing evidence that the neighbourhood environment plays an important role in the development of obesity."

The number of fast food takeaways is increasing rapidly in England (and also in many other countries), although the health impact of them is well known.
