Did you know that the Lancet released a staggering report recently? Have you heard about the “The Global Syndemic of Obesity, Undernutrition, and Climate Change?
This report summarizes the findings of a global consortium of more than 40 experts that have identified three interconnected health pandemics collectively known as “The Global Syndemic.” The report states that obesity, undernutrition, and global warming are working together to create the most critical threat to humans and the planet.
These top scientists’ research has clearly demonstrated the strongly linked connection of obesity, undernutrition, and climate change as the “paramount challenge” for our species and the environment. According to these experts, the primary driver of this global syndemic is commercial food influence, otherwise know as “Big Food.” The report states these three separate health pandemics are driven by the “effectively orchestrated manipulation of the food system for it’s vested commercial interests.”
In conclusion, the Lancet report states that NO country has been successful to date in attempts to tackle obesity. Period. None. Further, in order to begin to make actual change to the problem, the researches state “Governments must separate “BIG FOOD” commercial interest from public health policy.
