Occasional Paper 10 - Obesity and overweight in Europe and lessons from France and Finland
It is now common knowledge that obesity has enormous deleterious consequences for health and the economy. The rise of obesity is widely accepted as a major public health problem in the UK. In this paper we aimed to investigate the scale of the problem in the rest of Europe, and whether any lessons can be learned from the study of other countries. Two case studies, France and Finland, were used, which reflect where current research interests lie.
