ABSTRACT
The article presents an argument against the idea that cultural, psychological, or genetic causes are responsible for rising obesity rates. It is the author's opinion that obesity is self-inflicted and the result of poor eating habits coupled with a sedentary lifestyle. Social factors which contribute to obesity, education surrounding the issue of obesity and public health, and childhood obesity rates are discussed.
