The book has appeal for a broad audience that includes both biology and epidemiology students, as well as medical students and practitioners. This is the first book that I have seen that focuses on obesity in children and adolescents. It is excellent and provides a great deal of value to the field. (Linda G.

Inhaltsangabe: Despite adults' best preventive efforts, childhood obesity is on the rise in most areas of the world, and with it the prevalence of Type 2 diabetes, hypertension, cardiovascular disease, and other formerly adult-onset conditions. Epidemiology of Obesity in Children and Adolescents takes the global ecological approach that is needed to understand the scope of the problem and its multiple causes and mechanisms, and to aid in developing more effective prevention and intervention programs. In the book's first half, experts present a descriptive summary of youth obesity trends in ten world regions, broken down by age group, gender, socioeconomic status, and risk factors. Complementing these findings, part two reviews the evidence base regarding the variables, separately and in combination, having the most significant impact on young people's development of obesity, including:. Genetic and nutrigenomic factors.. Environmental and psychosocial factors, such as family shopping and eating habits and access to healthful foods.. Neuroendocrine regulation.. Prenatal and neonatal factors (e.g., gestational diabetes of the mother).. Dietary factors, from nutrient content to young people's food preferences.. Physical activity versus sedentary behavior.Epidemiology of Obesity in Children and Adolescents is necessary reading for the range of professionals involved in curtailing this epidemic, including public health specialists, epidemiologists, pediatricians, nurses, nutritionists, psychologists, health educators, and policymakers.
