"Obesity needs to be put into a much wider context"

The Lancet

The Lancet published Series on obesity in 2011 and 2015 that highlighted the scientific knowledge of origin, economic and health burden, the need for systems approaches, and the consequences of business as usual. In 2015, we concluded that little progress had been made beyond acknowledging that there is a worldwide problem and outlined urgent recommendations. Obesity is still regarded by some as an individual responsibility resulting from wrong choices and motivations. This view is not acceptable.
