According to the researchers, it’s the bad diet, not physical inactivity, behind the surge in obesity.

The authors said that celebrity endorsement of sugary drinks and the association of junk food and sport must end, adding that health clubs and gyms need to set an example by removing the sale of these products from their premises.
The food environment needs to be changed so that people automatically make healthy choices, suggest the authors.
The researchers concluded by saying that it was time to wind back the harms caused by the junk food industry’s public relations machinery.
