Obesity and tooth decay 'epidemic' warning

14th April 2010

Doctors at Alder Hey Children's Hospital in Liverpool have warned that there has been a considerable rise in the number of "avoidable" health complaints suffered by children.

The hospital cares for more than 200,000 children annually. Dr Steve Ryan, medical director at Alder Hey, told the BBC's Panorama programme: "It just shouldn't be happening. These children should not be suffering from these problems and they should not be here at this hospital. People are starting to say maybe this is a generation where children will be dying before their parents."
