The Spread of Obesity

David Audretsch () and Dawne DiOrio

Chapter 2 in Obesity, Business and Public Policy, 2007 from Edward Elgar Publishing

Abstract: The effects of obesity have become practically ubiquitous in the US. This book aims to provide an alternative framework through which to explore the important and controversial obesity debate that has spilled over from the medical community. This book is not about obesity as a medical condition, nor does it offer a wide-ranging discussion on the health effects of obesity or the role of the ‘right’ diet.
