The correlation between poverty and obesity can be traced to agricultural policies and subsidies.
Dietary fat, whether saturated or not, is not a cause of obesity, heart disease or any other chronic disease of civilization.
It is said that the way to prevent obesity is not to allow kids to become overweight in the first place. But it takes a multi-pronged approach that has to start with parents. Kids are just too young to understand the consequences of obesity.
The causes of obesity are varied and complex, but the lack of daily physical activity is an important factor.
This might be the first generation where kids are dying at a younger age than their parents and it's related primarily to the obesity problem.
The lack of access to proper nutrition is not only fueling obesity, it is leading to food insecurity and hunger among our children.

Each and every one of us has unknowingly played a part in the obesity problem.
When people are told to 'eat many small meals,' what they may actually hear is 'eat all the time,' making them likely to respond with some degree of compulsive overeating.

Obesity is awesome from a Wall Street perspective. It's not just one disease - there are all sorts of related diseases to profit from.
If your DNA profile puts you at a higher risk of developing obesity, that doesn't mean it's your fate. You can take control of the environmental side of the equation and reduce your overall lifetime risk by a lot.
