People in Britain are becoming fatter and knock-on health problems will result, says Mehran Zabhilloh, a health economist who compiled obesity data as part of the St Andrews study.

"As a nation we're going to become more obese, and we're going to present more and more problems such as diabetes, and that means that the NHS will have to deal with ever more increasing numbers of ill people as a result of being obese with a limited budget," says on a TV programme tonight. [Think deep-fried Mars bars and chips].

So, heres another reason for getting people out of their cars and onto bikes: itll save the NHS billions!
