Interventions in childhood obesity: ethical considerations
Imagine this. A professional journal, Preventing Chronic Disease: Public Health Research, Practice and Policy (Vol 8, Issue 5, Sep 2011) has published a series of papers on the ethics of childhood obesity interventions.
It is about time that these kinds of ethical issues are getting focused attention. Applause for the journal’s editors and authors!
