Abstract

Obesity rates have risen steadily in the United States and around the world over the past century, with a marked escalation within the past two decades. Conventional wisdom within the medical community is that the burgeoning obesity epidemic is the product of poor nutrition and lack of exercise, but increasingly researchers are questioning whether those factors are wholly responsible. Emerging research about alternative factors is setting the stage for today's "Perfect Storm" for obesity.
