The obesogenicenvironment describes all the possible influences that ourenvironment presents which encourage overweight and obesity inindividuals and populations. Beginning with an overarching introduction to obesity and itsimplications for health and wellbeing, the book will move on toconsider such crucial areas as eating behaviours and foodenvironments, physical activity and the environment, the urbanenvironment, methods, policy and future research directions. * Brings together expertise from across a range ofdisciplines * Written by a truly multidisciplinary team of internationalauthors * Presents some of the most innovative thinking in the battleagainst obesity This groundbreaking book brings together for the first time theknowledge of experts with backgrounds in nutrition and dietetics,policy, epidemiology, environmental sciences, medical sciences,town planning and urban design, transport, geography and physicalactivity in order to offer a multidisciplinary approach to publichealth, suggesting new and exciting ways to shape our environmentto better support healthful decisions.
