UK to unveil 10 million Euros anti-obesity plan after PM Boris Johnson's near-death experience
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson is set to role out a 10 million anti-obesity campaign, including junk food adverting bans, following his own brush with death that he partly blamed on his weight. Johnson will announce his Better Health campaign on Monday, which is expected to include encouraging doctors to issue cycling prescriptions for overweight patients, more segregated cycling lanes and a ban on junk food television ads before 9.00 PM according to British media reports. A government spokesman said on Sunday that Covid-19 has given us all a wake-up call of the immediate and long-term risks of being overweight.
