Epidemiology and Determinants of Obesity

Obesity is considered to be a major health hazard. In 1997 the World Health Organization (WHO) formally recognized obesity as a global epidemic. In 2013, an estimated 2.1 billion adults were overweight as compared with 857 million in 1980.The rate of obesity also increases with age at least up to 50 or 60 years old.  Obesity was once considered only to be a problem of high-income countries. But now obesity rates are rising worldwide. These increases have been seen most in urban settings. The only remaining region of the world where obesity is not common is sub-Saharan Africa.
