Description - The Seven Deadly Sins of Obesity by Jane Dixon
Argues that the skyrocketing increase in obesity levels is not caused by individuals' moral weakness, but is due to modern society lacking the virtues necessary for people to adopt and maintain healthy behaviours. In a fresh and highly original approach, the book proceeds to identify a set of seven social and environmental `sins' that characterise our contemporary world, and then describes how each impacts on the level of obesity.
