Exactly. This article doesn't even rank Birkenhead:

Quote:
The top five overweight cities and towns in the UK included Boston - with 34 per cent obese, Barnsley, Mansfield, Rotherham and Fenland.


http://www.express.co.uk/life-style/health/831465/obesity-mapped-north-south-England-divide

This article, from September, shows Wirral isn't too bad:

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/health-fitness/0/englands-obesity-hotspots-does-area-compare/

As for the original article, besides being from 2016 and based on old data, the data is actually:

Quote:
Out of every 100,000 people in the area there were 2,894 admissions where medics recorded a "primary or secondary" diagnosis of obesity.


This doesn't mean that Wirral is the fattest region, it just means that more cases have been recorded by doctors in hospitals in the area.

This could be down to more observant doctors, more doctors just putting down "obesity" as a matter of course, or more people being referred to Wirral.

But equally it could be indicative that more people in Wirral are at the doctors because of complications due to obesity.

Well I attribute it to the French Fries, sauerkraut and sausage, and Belgium waffles. Without which, we will be so much healthier . smile

it could be that the wirral has one of the biggest amount of people on the dole or on pip, if on pip you have to see a doctor, be it your doc then the doles doc and as we know the dole like to have more people off the pip list their doc can put that they're just fat.
