This book offers practical information about the methodology of epidemiologic studies of obesity, suitable for graduate students and researchers in epidemiology, and public health practitioners with an interest in the issue. It is structured in four main sections, with the majority of chapters authored by Dr. Hu, and some authored by specialists in specific areas."@en
