Accelerating progress in obesity prevention: Solving the weight of the nation (USA)
posted by Research Admin on 9 May 2012
This report, published recently by the Institute of Medicine (IOM) in the US, focuses on five critical goals for preventing obesity: integrating physical activity into people's daily lives, making healthy food and beverage options available everywhere, transforming marketing and messages about nutrition and activity, making schools a gateway to healthy weights, and galvanizing employers and health care professionals to support healthy lifestyles.
The IOM's recommendations, when implemented together, could profoundly reshape the environments where people live, learn, work, and play.
