Globesity - TEST ONLY

THIS IS FOR THE TEST ONLY. The e-book can be purchased from Cedar Fort (see link below). It is estimated that 1.4 billion adults—one in three across the globe—are overweight. Registered dietitian and health writer Clare Fleishman explores surprising new suspects contributing to our planet’s expanding girth, including air conditioning, drugs, pollution, and others which get little notice as lack of will power shoulders the blame. This important work examines how we live in a new century and why obesity has become a major killer from the American Midwest to the cities of Europe and across the deserts of Africa.

Learning Objectives 

  1. Discuss the major environmental obesogens which lead to metabolic changes which in turn contribute to obesity.
  2. Identify ways that individual obesogens disrupt normal mechanisms of homeostasis and set the client up for a metabolism which encourages weight gain and related disease.
  3. Better assess clients’ needs and propose interventions to help guide them in achieving permanent weight loss.
  4. Identify individual as well as community-based solutions which may alleviate the growing obesity burden in our societies by tackling different aspects of the multifactorial problem.
  5. Identify actions which healthcare providers may take within their disciplines to change policy and outcomes for clients whose weight management is affected by specific obesogens.
