With 60% of adults in Northern Ireland either overweight or obese, the Public Health Agency (PHA) is encouraging people to spot the signs that they may be inching towards bad health. Measuring up is a quick and easy way to check, and as part of National Obesity Awareness Week (11-17 January) our experts are saying take out the tape measure and get to know your waistline. Â"Many people donÂ't measure their waistline correctly as theyÂ're unsure of where their waistline actually is,Â" Dr Tracy Owen, Consultant in Public Health Medicine at the PHA, said.
