The Health Survey for England is an annual survey of the general population, run by UCL and The National Centre for Social Research since 1994.  Each year, up to 16,000 adults and around 4,000 children are randomly selected to be visited by an interviewer and a nurse.  In this talk, I will be presenting some of the recent findings.  Is obesity really increasing as much as people say?  Is it worse in children or adults?  Are we a nation of couch potatoes?  Who are the binge-drinkers?  Did the smoke free legislation make any difference?  Are we getting better at preventing heart disease?
