  • CHILDHOOD OBESITY PREVENTION
    academic performance have done away with much of the physical exercise programmes of the past and in many cases playing fields have been sold for extra income Parents too have been much more protective of their children letting them go out to play or ride a bike only under strict supervision Governments and local administrations have been slow to recognise these changes and as a consequence certain infrastructure projects play grounds playing fields bicycle lanes for example have not received the investments required Only now is there a gradual understanding that unsafe neighbourhoods have a knock on effect within the community and the home as parents become more reluctant to let their children go outside alone To conclude instead of obesity being an unusual response to a normal environment Prof Seidell believes it is a normal response to an abnormal environment Why has this happened and what can be done about it Prof Seidell says that while there have been many published studies about the problems and treatments of obesity much of the research has been ignored by the scientific community as it has not been the subject of randomised control trials Furthermore drawing conclusions even from those studies with control samples has been difficult and the results have been less than conclusive According to Prof Seidell this is for two reasons on the one hand research with randomised control trials run for only a relatively short period of time and secondly the very fact that the control sample is selected and measured means that the results are biased in their favour as the recruited control sample is likely to behave differently than usual A much richer source of data has been the work done on communities as a whole where the vast majority of interventions have had a profound effect on the levels of obesity in the society at large The studies themselves have been going on for a much longer period of time more than 15 years in some cases and the results are conclusive There is no silver bullet to fighting obesity There is however no one thing to be done to reverse the trend for greater BMIs and more obesity Just as the prevalence of being overweight is due to a combination of factors so the resulting cure needs to be an integrated response Prof Seidell is convinced that the integrated approach to fighting the problem is the only way forward And this takes time because there is a lot to get right Town planners need to be involved so as to create the right environment for example exercise needs to be encouraged through the building of playgrounds and the creation of bicycle lanes Politicians too need to back the project so that the public at large feel good about letting their kids play outside safely Bicycle lanes alone are not good enough the public must feel good about using them There is a case of a city in Australia installing bicycle lanes that never got
