Common theories on obesity increase 'could be wrong'

A new study by researchers in the US has highlighted shifting societal tendencies that throw doubt on what many people believe to be the cause of increasing levels of obesity across the globe.

University of Illinois kinesiology and community health professor Ruopeng An carried out an examination of changing behaviour in Americans over recent decades and revealed that, far from the population becoming more sedentary, typical levels of exercise and healthy eating have become more common in recent years.

He stated: "We are kind of in a dilemma trying to figure out what really contributes to the obesity epidemic. We have a lot of hypotheses but we really don't have much data to support them at this stage."

Overweight individuals wishing to lose weight could benefit from the use of oxygen equipment before and after exercise - helping them to keep their muscles well-oxygenated and to assist with any shortness of breath as they increase their daily activity levels.
