New Study Sheds Light On Obesity Trends


"A recent study by the London School of Economics (LSE), which looked at 26 countries between 1989 and 2005 when globalisation dramatically expanded conclude that social globalization - changes in the way we work and live - was what was making us fat, rather than the wider availability of cheaper and more calorific foods driven by global trade.

Basically, the fact that we are are now increasingly able to work, shop and socialise whilst barely moving a muscle is to blame, says study author Dr Joan Costa-Font. The moral of this story again seems to point to the importance of physical activity and exercise to staying slim and healthy.
