From the Publisher:

Are children who attend schools near fast food restaurants more likely to be obese than those who live far from them? Why do people in the US with lower economic and educational status have a higher prevalence for being obese? Obesity research has recently shifted from focusing on individual causes to viewing individuals within their living environments. Obesity 101 is the first volume to offer a broad and balanced perspective on the complex factors that influence obesity.

The text combines current research from multiple perspectives to provide an introductory level, reader-friendly overview of the history, causes, prevalence, consequences, treatments, and future trends in prevention of obesity. True to the complex nature of this often controversial topic, Grounded in behavioral science, it integrates research from a range of disciplines including health psychology, developmental psychology, medicine, nutrition, exercise science, public health, education, economics and sociology.

Key Features:

  • Brings together obesity research from multiple disciplines
  • Balanced treatment of one of today's most controversial health issues
  • Reviews the effectiveness of prevention and treatment programs and procedures
  • Accessible, conversational writing style Designed for use by undergraduate and graduate students
