Obesity Health Alliance supports the report ‘Living Longer, Living Well’ by the Richmond Group

The Obesity Health Alliance, a coalition of over 30 leading national health charities, campaign groups, and Royal Medical Colleges, has responded to the Richmond Group’s report. They said in a joint statement:

“Being obese increases the risk of serious health conditions such as Type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease and common cancers; these conditions in turn are associated with an increased risk of developing mental health problems, such as depression.  As well as being personally devastating for all those involved, they also place a huge financial burden on the NHS and society.”
