Globesity: A Planet Out of Control?

£8.99

Product description

Obesity has now reached epidemic proportions, not only in industrialised nations, but increasingly in less developed countries. It represents one of the major global public health challenges of the current century. This book assesses the nature and scale of this problem. Written by world- leading specialists in health nutrition, Globesity cuts straight to the underlying nature and causes of this devastating trend. It shows that the causes are primarily socio-economic and the result of a distorted agricultural and food production and supply system. To address this problem, we must learn how to better manage the physical, social and economic environment rather than simply focusing on individual lifestyle choices.This is a very revealing and engaging book.

In fine condition, with just some slight bumping to spine due to shelf wear.
