Science in the fight against childhood obesity

A few days ago, a special issue of the scientific journal Obesity Reviews was published, probably the world’s most prestigious scientific journal dealing with the problem of obesity. This special issue is dedicated to the fight against childhood obesity and the volume contains a dozen scientific articles that answer the question of what are the factors influencing the growing rate of childhood obesity in Europe – from socio-economic factors, through differences in healthy behaviors, and all to messages addressed to governments and legislatures. The associates of our Center also participated in writing certain articles, and the entire issue is freely available to all readers at this link.
