The country's most senior doctor has called for obesity to be treated as a "national threat" to this country, as she urges women to slim down to protect themselves and future generations Obesity is a national threat to the nation's health, the country's chief medical officer has warned.

Obesity poses such a threat to the country that it should be treated as a ?national risk? alongside terrorism, the country?s most senior doctor has warned.

Professor Dame Sally Davies urged women in particular to take steps to slim down - warning that rising levels of obesity in pregnancy are jeopardising the health of future generations.

She said that the problem is becoming so deadly that it is now threatening to overwhelm the NHS and cripple society?s productivity.
"In women obesity can affect the outcomes of any pregnancies they have and the health of any future children they may have"
Professor Dame Sally Davies

Up to half of women of childbearing age are overweight or obese, official figures show.
Obesity in pregnancy increases the risk of miscarriage and premature birth, while resulting children carry a higher risk of heart disease and of becoming obese.
