Time to cut down on takeaways; Get in touch - tell us what you think Email: Twitter: @birminghammail Facebook: Post: Birmingham Mail, Floor 6, Fort Dunlop, Fort Parkway, B24 9FF.

SLOWLY but surely the big problem of obesity is getting through to people as reported by your Health Correspondent in the Birmingham Mail.

There are one thousand and fifty eight fast food takeaways in Birmingham, it is no wonder there is a big problem here. Somebody has to take the blame for this and surely some of the blame has to go to the people who grant licences for these places to open, some of which open at 5am in the morning to feed who? None of these places should be allowed to be anywhere near a school, and what is wrong with them opening during normal trading hours? There have always been corner cafe's here as well as the very traditional fish and chip shop, also not forgetting the Chinese takeaway. The places mentioned all seemed to have strictly controlled hours and of course they sell food which is cooked nicely. This is very different to the food that appears to be cooked conveyer belt style en mass to feed people who can't control their diet, or are just not capable of cooking a meal themselves or have not the time to do so!

It is now time to take action and slowly cut down on more of these establishments opening, enough is enough.
