  • Physical Activity Therapy Although exercise alone is only moderately effective for weight loss, the combination of dietary modification and exercise is the most effective behavioral approach for the treatment of obesity. The most important role of exercise appears to be in the maintenance of the weight loss.

  • Lifestyle Management Obesity care involves attention to three essential elements of lifestyle: dietary habits, physical activity, and behavior modification. Because obesity is fundamentally a disease of energy imbalance, all patients must learn how and when energy is consumed (diet), how and when energy is expended (physical activity), and how to incorporate this information into their daily life (behavior therapy). Lifestyle management has been shown to result in a modest (typically 3– 5 kg) weight loss compared to no treatment or usual care.

  • The trend over time to a higher services sector share in GDP shows that higher real growth in services has not been offset by price declines. There is no Dutch disease, whereby the price of a service falls with an increase in its supply (Bau- mol 1967). India has a higher share of services and more rapid growth in its services sector than does China, although the latter is richer and has grown faster . That fact suggests that services are responding not simply to domestic demand (which would be higher in China), but also to export op- portunities (Ghani and Kharas 2010).

Scientists have also studied whether taking certain fertility drugs, using talcum powder, or being obese are risk factors. It is not clear whether these are risk factors, but if they are, they are not strong risk factors. Having a risk factor does not mean that a woman will get ovarian cancer. Most women who have risk factors do not get ovarian cancer.

  • Put simply, public health has a bold mission: “protecting health and saving lives— millions at a time.” In medical fields, clinicians treat diseases or injuries, one patient at a time. But in public health, we prevent disease and injury. As researchers, practitioners and educators, we work with communities and populations. We identify causes of disease and disability, and we implement largescale solutions. For example, instead of treating a gun wound, we identify causes of gun violence and develop interventions.
