Pay a writer to complete this discussion

An obesity epidemic has swept the nation and many Americans struggle with excess weight gain. Multiple factors have been proposed as causes of this epidemic, but few solutions have proved effective in curbing rising obesity rates. As health professionals, it is important to understand what drives obesity and what can be done to prevent and manage it.

  1. Discuss 2-3 evidence-based factors that contribute to obesity. These could include environmental, lifestyle, and/or genetic factors. From a public health perspective, what solutions could help reduce or reverse each factor?
  2. Compare current rates of obesity in the US to obesity rates in one other country. Is the other country experiencing a similar increase? Why or why not?
  3. What can the church and faith-based organizations do to help address the problem of obesity? Use at least one Scripture reference to support your views.
