Abstract

Obesity in the United States has reached epidemic proportions in both adults and children. Multi-factorial causes are responsible, including social, economic, and other environmental forces acting on a susceptible genetic heritage. Halting and reversing the epidemic will require multi-factorial solutions, including implementing cognitive coping strategies and mounting an effective social change movement.
