Obesity in Canada: Overstated Problems, Misguided Policy Solutions

« Malgré les affirmations de certains politiciens, médias et partisans de la santé publique, il n’y a pas, au Canada, d’épidémie d’obésité causant un grand nombre de maladies et de décès. Par ailleurs, il est faux de prétendre que seul le gouvernement peut nous sauver de nous-mêmes », soutient Nadeem Esmail, directeur de la recherche sur les politiques de santé de l’Institut Fraser et auteur de l’étude intitulée Obesity in Canada: Overstated Problems, Misguided Policy Solutions.
