Fat Chance? Exploring the evidence of who becomes obese

Fat Chance? Exploring the evidence of who becomes obese

A year on since their last report ‘Careless Eating Costs Lives’, 2020health has released a new study examining the wealth of current knowledge and data on obesity titled 'Fat Chance? Exploring the evidence of who becomes obese'  The study seeks to address one crucial question: ‘Who exactly is becoming obese?’

The study looked at 16 data-sets to determine ‘who’ is obese in the UK, and what are the key correlates linked to rising levels of obesity.  Julia Manning, Chief Executive, 2020health believes the report confirms the incredibly complex nature of the challenge that we face to improve the health of the nation.
