Obesity ISBN: 9780749666156
Published by Franklin Watts (What If We Do Nothing series), 2006
A frank and often fascinating look at this hot topic of the moment. If the statistics threaten to overwhelm, there is plenty of real information in chapters on: the causes of obesity, how it affects health, how it affects children, obesity in the developing world (not something one hears much about) and ways to create a healthier future. Lots of charts, photos, information boxes and debating points will make this particularly useful in schools. There are the usual extras: an index, a glossary, a list of websites and another of books - and a page of possible answers to the debate questions. An impressive information book.
