Protein Energy Malnutrition
The obesity culture : strategies for change. Public health and university-community partnerships
Johnston £25 978-1-85463-225-8
The authors describe obesity as a complex problem. As such they insist on the diverse conditions that form ‘The obesity culture’.  Good methods of research, and a central role for education and community participation may best meet the public health challenge. Obesity and overweight, as hazards for the health of all, and widely manifested as a particular threat to the less economically well off and minority groups, form an outstanding example of the complex problems of today’s global society. Money alone and prescriptive solutions clearly do not work.
