E-Book of the Week: Globesity

Delpeuch, Francis, Bernard Maire, Emmanuel Monnier and Michelle Holdsworth. Globesity: A Planet Out of Control? Sterling, VA: Earthscan, 2009.

Globesity illustrates how obesity is not just a problem facing the United States, but one that is affecting the entire world—underdeveloped and developed countries alike. This book looks at the large-scale causes of obesity, as well as the related impact this epidemic has on personal health, the economy, and the environment. In addition to raising awareness of the problem, the writers offer effective solutions to addressing the issue.
