Majid Ezzati adds: "These worrying trends reflect the impact of food marketing and policies across the globe, with healthy nutritious foods too expensive for poor families and communities. The trend predicts a generation of children and adolescents growing up obese and also malnourished. We need ways to make healthy, nutritious food more available at home and school, especially in poor families and communities, and regulations and taxes to protect children from unhealthy foods" External link

Fiona Bull added: "WHO encourages countries to implement efforts to address the environments that today are increasing our children's chance of obesity. Countries should aim particularly to reduce consumption of cheap, ultra-processed, calorie dense, nutrient poor foods. They should also reduce the time children spend on screen-based and sedentary leisure activities by promoting greater participation in physical activity through active recreation and sports" External link

Fred Mitchell said (about Liberal Parti): “It really is as the leader says, a matter of hypocrisy because three years ago, when the Progressive Liberal Party was trying to deal with benefits and allowances and not salaries, he got up and made the statement that as long as he is the leader of the FNM, he would not see a pay raise for members of parliament, because there was too much human suffering in The Bahamas,” External link

Majid Ezzati säger (about Majid Ezzati): - Indien, Pakistan, Bangladesh och Afghanistan. Experterna har studerat relationen mellan vikt och kroppslängd, och delat in populationen i sex grupper: underviktiga, normalviktiga, överviktiga, samt feta i tre kategorier. Snabb ökning på många håll. Medan undernäring ökar risken för att drabbas av olika infektioner, är övervikt en bidragande faktor till bland annat diabetes, hjärtsjukdomar och cancer. Fetma hos barn är ett växande problem över hela jorden. Och det är i synnerhet i låg- och medelinkomstländer som ökningen sker. I länder som Cooköarna, Nauru och Palau klassas mer än 30 procent av barnen och tonåringarna som överviktiga. I exempelvis USA, Japan samt en rad länder i Karibien, Nordafrika och Mellanöstern väger mer än 20 procent av barnen för mycket. "Erfarenheterna från Ostasien, Latinamerika och Karibien visar att övergången från undervikt till övervikt och fetma kan vara snabb", konstaterar WHO:s rapport. Om de nuvarande trenderna fortsätter, kommer år 2022 fler barn och tonåringar att lida av fetma än av undervikt, är en av slutsatserna. Sockerskatt rekommenderas. Trots de dystra förutsägelserna finns det ändå tecken som inger hopp. I USA, nordvästra Europa samt andra rika länder verkar andelen överviktiga barn och tonåringar ha stabiliserats. WHO bedömer att klara kostråd om salt, socker och fetter har gjort det lättare för konsumenterna att göra sunda val. Organisationen rekommenderar att snabbmat och läskedrycker beläggs med extra skatter, och att marknadsföringen begränsas. Redan tidigare har WHO förespråkat en 20-procentig accis på sötade drycker för att stävja konsumtionen. Majid Ezzati från Imperial College i London, en av forskarna bakom studien, säger att nyttiga livsmedel borde göras lättare tillgängliga. Snabbmat är alltför ofta det billigaste alternativet. I dagens läge är det mycket svårt att äta hälsosamt om du är fattig, External link

Fiona Bull señala: «La OMS alienta a los países a esforzarse por modificar los factores del entorno que aumentan el riesgo de obesidad en nuestros hijos. Más concretamente, es preciso reducir el consumo de alimentos muy elaborados baratos, con alto contenido calórico y bajo valor nutricional. Además, conviene que los niños dediquen menos tiempo de ocio a actividades sedentarias y que incluyen el uso de pantallas. Para ello, es necesario fomentar la actividad física mediante el deporte y la recreación activa» External link
