While it is increasingly clear that adult obesity begins in childhood, preventing this condition is a major challenge for the pediatrician.

Adult Obesity: A Paediatric Challenge highlights the causes and consequences of obesity, bringing a modern understanding to the treatment of a heavily stigmatized problem. This collection of essays, based on presentations made at a national symposium on obesity, focuses on managing the condition and its outcomes. World renowned authors offer a wide-ranging perspective of obesity as a global problem and explore its devastating metabolic, social, and political impact.

Clarifying a number of important issues, this compilation provides answers to many of the questions surrounding this dangerous condition. It offers sound advice on confronting obesity and conveys the urgency that this problem demands and deserves.
