FOUR OUT OF five people over the age of fifty in Ireland are overweight.

A new study says that a similar proportion has an ‘increased’ or ‘substantially increased’ waist circumference.

It points out that high levels of obesity and overweight not only place a burden on people’s health, but on the health system too.
