About This Item

Johns Hopkins University Press, 2017. Paperback. New Book. Paperback. The author explains why diets and exercise don’t work in fighting obesity, why environment is to blame, and how weight loss can occur. She addresses whether dieting, exercise, diet pills, and surgery work; the role of genetics in obesity; how new ways of living have led to new ways of eating, the roles of the economics of food, advertising, and inequality, and how the overweight are stigmatized; and how governments can make a difference through policy. She contends that the commodification of food created by junk food advertising, along with urbanization, globalization, and trade agreements, make it difficult to lose weight, and that it needs to be easy for people to eat healthily. (2017 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR)
