Societal & Scientific Factors Blamed For U.S. Obesity Epidemic

According to the first annual U.S. News Combating Childhood Obesity summit, which was recently held at the Texas Children's Hospital, the childhood obesity epidemic in the U.S. revolves around societal and scientific factors such as genetics and an overabundance of available processed foods.

A “Disorder”

"Obesity is a disorder which, like venereal disease, is blamed upon the patient," said obesity researcher Dr. George Bray, the opening lecturer at the obesity event. "Obesity isn't a disease of willpower -- it's a biological problem. Genes load the gun, and environment pulls the trigger." 

The Processed Food Factor

Highly-processed food is considered one of the biggest obesity culprits. Bray published his findings in the medical journal Cell Metabolism, which discussed how participants who consumed minimally-processed foods with clearly-identifiable ingredients ate less and had fewer problems losing weight. The participants who consumed pre-packaged, highly-processed food did not lose as much weight among other problems. 

"What we saw, on average was people consumed 500 calories more" on the processed-food diet than those who ate food that didn't go through a factory, said Kevin Hall, chief of the integrated physiology section at the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases. "The ones on the unprocessed diet -- they spontaneously lost weight."

"The fats in our food supply may well be playing a part in our inability to regulate" food intake, Bray added. 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention additionally noted that the percentage of children and teens affected by obesity "has more than tripled since the 1970s.” The CDC also reported that "nearly 1 in 5 school age children and young people (6 to 19 years) in the United States has obesity."
