Environmental factors spread obesity, CCNY-led team reports

, : Environmental factors spread obesity, CCNY-led team reports.

An international team of researchers' study of the spatial patterns of the spread of obesity suggests America's bulging waistlines may have more to do with collective behavior than genetics or individual choices. The team, led by City College of New York physicist Hernan Makse, found correlations between the epidemic's geography and food marketing and distribution patterns.
