What is driving the epidemic? The underlying causes of the UK’s (and most of the developed world’s) obesity epidemic are not addressed in the report, but there is a large consensus of expert opinion that the following factors are responsible: There is easy access to cheap, high-energy food that is often aggressively marketed to people. People’s lifestyles and jobs are much less active than in the past and many leisure activities such as watching television, playing video games and browsing the internet are usually done sitting down. People drive or use public transport and walk a lot less than they used to.
