Childhood Obesity
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The World Health Organization describes obesity as one of today's most blatantly visible - yet most neglected - public health problems. Childhood Obesity: Contemporary Issues is an up-to-date account of the modern rise in obesity in children, its causes, and prevention to uncover why the disease is so difficult to treat and prevent. Focusing less on clinical issues and more on environmental factors, the book brings together social, psychological, biological, and socio-biological approaches to the experience and problem of obesity. This volume provides a unique view of the obese child, adolescent, and parents, and examines both diet and activity, the immediate determinants of energy balance.
