1) But who is responsible for it? What does Bob think?
According to statistics 20% of teenagers in Great Britain have a disease of some kind. But who is responsible for it?
School certainly should pay more attention to teens' health. Since children have to sit at a desk all day long, they have no time to go out. What's more there are not enough PE lessons at school and, as a result, children are less active.
On the other hand, many parents themselves have unhealthy diets. Parents don't have time to cook healthy food because of a lot of work. Consequently, they are not able to teach their children to eat healthily at home. And this results in unhealthy eating habits for their children.
However, I don't think it's fair to consider parents, TV, magazines or schools responsible for the fact that children are unhealthy. It's our own choice as to what we eat and how active we are. We — children are very lazy nowadays. if you are unhealthy, the person who is responsible for it is yourself.
