Is Obesity an epidemic?

  1. Or you could ask, is childhood obesity as currently defined (relative to children from the 1970s and 1980s) actually a “problem”? This is part of the framing that also needs to be questioned. Does childhood obesity actually need to be “reduced”? After all, children in the 1940s were probably thinner than children in the 1970s – did those children actually need to be reduced even though now they function as the (not updated) norm.
