TOP CAUSES OF OBESITY
The spreading obesity epidemic is most commonly associated with overeating (especially junk food and processed foods) and reduced physical activity. However, too much food and too little exercise may not necessarily be the main causes of obesity. Now research reveals the top 10 additional causes of obesity that are contributing to the obesity epidemic.
The study, published in the International Journal of Obesity, investigated possible contributors to the obesity epidemic. "Undue attention has been devoted to reduced physical activity and food marketing practices as postulated causes for increases in the prevalence of obesity, leading to neglect of other plausible mechanisms and well-intentioned, but potentially ill-founded proposals for reducing obesity rates," write the study authors. "For at least 10 putative additional explanations for the increased prevalence of obesity over the recent decades, we found supportive (although not conclusive) evidence that in many cases is as compelling as the evidence for more commonly discussed putative explanations."
The researchers' 10 additional causes of obesity include:
"We do not claim that all of the additional explanations definitively are contributors [to obesity] but only that they are as plausibly so as are the 'big two' and deserve more attention and study," the study authors conclude.
