Review: barriers to physical activity in obese adults: a rapid evidence assessment.
Obesity is clearly a major public health problem in developed nations, but also impacts on the health of developing countries, as they adopt lifestyle practices of the former. Physical activity, or lack of it, contributes heavily to the problem, especially in relation to childhood obesity; the latter not helped by the increasing use of computer games, structured as opposed to free play (ingrained from nursery school, under the health and safety banner), and reduction in school sporting activity.
