ABSTRACT
The article explores ways to stop the obesity epidemic in Australia. Positive measures such as the construction of bicycle paths, school exercise programs, workplace activity programs will not be effective since they do not reproduce the obligatory activity that was closely linked to life before the technological revolution. Aside from the social, political and cultural impediments to successful reversal of the epidemic, there are also biological barriers that need to be overcome.
