In a world where obesity has now reached epidemic proportions, a thorough understanding of the underlying causes of the problem is essential if public health initiatives and government policies are to successfully address the issue. Beginning with an overarching introduction to obesity and its implications for health and wellbeing, the book will move on to consider such crucial areas as eating behaviours and food environments, physical activity and food access. This groundbreaking book brings together for the first time the knowledge of dietitians, epidemiologists and town planners in order to offer a multidisciplinary approach to public health, suggesting new and exciting ways to shape our environment to better support healthful decisions"--Provided by publisher."@en ;
