Abstract: Efforts to prevent and treat obesity need to be grounded in science. A historical focus on individual responsibility has been ineffective in halting the rise in obesity prevalence. There needs to be a better understanding of environmental and biological drivers of weight gain to help reduce weight bias and stigma and identify more effective policies for action.
