Health Ministry: ‘Haredi Sector Suffers from Obesity’

The Health Ministry has determined that there are more overweight people in the ultra-Orthodox sector than in the secular one.

Yair Amikam stressed in a letter to the chairman of the ministerial Tender Committee that “the problem is seven times worse in the haredi sector than among seculars.”

At first, Amikam stated, the Dairy Board and ministry would work to raise awareness to the issue among children and teenagers. The campaign was to be brought to the sector’s members through a haredi radio children’s show.
