Appetite and body weight

It is generally accepted that the average temperatures of the atmosphere, the landmasses, and the seas are perceptibly rising. The trajectory of the rising temperatures is such that informed predictions envisage a range of disastrous consequences that will affect everyone’s lives. Yet we also face another potential calamity, and that is the global rise in obesity. How many people will be affected in 10, 20, or 50 years’ time is very difficult to predict. However, the associated health care costs alone will be prohibitively high, and there will be overwhelming economic and social costs too. Obesity is a global problem that demands our urgent attention. Modern methods of food production, distribution, and retailing have led to surplus levels of high-quality food production, which in turn require high levels of consumer demand and consumption to be sustained economically.
