New book: Childhood Obesity
Kristin Voigt, Stuart G. Nicholls, Garrath Williams. Childhood Obesity: Ethical and Policy Issues. Oxford University Press, 2014.
I gave this one a blurb:
A well-researched, highly critical, but carefully balanced examination of everyday assumptions about childhood obesity and its prevention from an intensely moral perspective. Although the authors demonstrate that no intervention is without ethical complications or effective entirely on its own, they call for immediate actions to reduce the stigma of childhood obesity, support parents, and create food environments healthier for children, adults, and the environment.
