Striking image: potato chips and oil

BBC News reports a few examples from the British Heart Foundation's Food4Thought campaign -- children that eat a bag of potato chips each day (though the estimate is based on a larger bag than a 28 g snack size bag of Lay's chips) end up consuming the equivalent of about 5 liters of cooking oil in a year. Also includes a downloadable PDF poster of the girl-chugging-cooking-oil image.
The Food4Thought site is geared toward adolescents and contains other junk food stats in a "Gross Me Out" section and a health quiz, as well as tips for healthy eating (including celebrity examples) and for exercise and fitness.
