In today’s Guardian there is an article (“Date for halting childhood obesity slips back ten years”) that clearly underlines that childhood obesity is a major problem in the Britain. In fact, it seems so grave that the government is unable to come to grips with how to tackle the issue. Obesity is going to be one of the most pressing issues in the developed world in the near future and it will not be remedied until people start thinking about food culture. It is just one of the many signs of the damaging effects of the culture of excess that is slowly eating away at social and moral values as well as physical health.
