Fried Chicken Contributes To UK Obesity Epidemic

April 10, 2015

  • Fried chicken has fast become one of Britain’s favourite junk foods
  • There are over 8,000 fried chicken shops in the UK
  • Health experts fear that fried chicken is causing cases of obesity to rise
If you walk down any UK high street, you will find yourself presented with a whole host of fried chicken shops. Imported from the States in the early 90s, Brits have swiftly made fried chicken a staple part of their diet. However, recent revelations about how fried chicken is made has left many Brits in a state of shock. The chicken is fried in fatty oils, that health experts claim can lead not just to obesity but also clogged arteries and type 2 diabetes. The chicken is also high in calories, with just one meal at your local fried chicken shop adding up to over 2,000 calories. It’s no wonder that Brits are now being warned about the worrying effects fried chicken can have on their health. Although fried chicken may be tasty and convenient, it’s certainly not the best way to get your daily protein fix. Protein is an essential part of any diet, however Brits are now disillusioned about the best way to get it. Are you a lover of fried chicken? We’d love to hear from you.
