Description This volume reviews recent findings on the physiological, genetic, environmental, and behavioral factors that predispose children and adolescents to obesity and explores clinical and public health strategies for treatment and prevention. Written by an international group of experts, the book provides a global perspective on the epidemic of childhood obesity and includes studies of children and adolescents in both industrialized and developing countries. A major focus of the book is on environmental factors--such as high energy density fast food, inadequate physical activity, and excessive television viewing--that contribute to pediatric obesity. - Source: Powell's Books
