Description of this Electronic Book

In the last three decades, obesity has increased in almost every country in the world, among adults and children alike. Globally, more than two billion people are now overweight or obese; among high-income countries, Australia and New Zealand have seen the greatest recent growth in obesity rates. This book presents an overview of Australia's national weight problem, explaining how body weight is measured and highlighting the causes, health risks and costs of overweight and obesity. General advice is also offered on how to achieve and maintain healthy weight through balanced food intake, increased physical activity, and government policy approaches. Also includes: worksheets and activities, fast facts, glossary, web links, index. Titles in the Issues in Society series are individual resource books which provide an overview on a specific subject comprised of facts and opinions. The information in this resource book is not from any single author, publication or organisation. The unique value of the Issues in Society series lies in its diversity of content and perspectives. The content comes from a wide variety of sources and includes: newspaper reports and opinion pieces, website fact sheets, magazine and journal articles, statistics and surveys, government reports, and literature from special interest groups.
