In This Issue Obesity Epidemic This issue of Abby's Mag addresses the ever rising epidemic of overweight and obesity at all ages. An impressive team of experts spent the last two years examining obesity- promoting forces globally and published their findings in The Lancet. It will take many, many years, a slew of different tactics and the political will to overcome powerful lobbying by culpable industries to turn this problem around. Just as the decline in smoking did not happen overnight, a reduction in the rates of overweight and obesity will take a while. All of us need to take action now, before the increase in life expectancy that Americans now enjoy is reversed by obesity-caused diseases.
