The paper discusses epidemiologic principles in identifying who is affected by obesity, what constitutes obesity, its trend over time and where obesity is prevalent. The paper reveals that the case for deeming obesity a public health issue worldwide was demonstrated by studies attempting to establish its correlation with childhood onset and coronary heart disease, causality between metabolic syndrome risk factor acquisition (obesity being a major component) and dietary habits and intervention by targeting specific populations at risk. The paper notes that while these studies are examples and cannot represent the depth of literature in obesity, it can be seen from them that much work still needs to be done.
