European obesity epidemic
The Developmental ORIgins of healthy and unhealthy AgeiNg (DORIAN) consortium, funded by the European Commission has concluded that over half of all adults in Europe are now either overweight or obese. In view of the long lasting consequences for both mothers and children, they argue for urgent programmes to prevent obesity in women of child bearing age.
