2016’s fattest cities in America

I do think both employers and government can and should play constructive roles in enabling people to live healthy lifestyles, for example, by ensuring access to nutritious food, providing time and safe spaces for children to engage in physical activity, and limiting children’s exposure to junk food and sodas. At the same time, it is important that neither government nor businesses rely on shame or punitive policies. We need to understand that the increasing prevalence of overweight and obesity in the last few decades is not the result of individuals’ lack of will, but of a changing food and physical activity environment. Hence, policy efforts should focus on altering the landscape.
