Brosco Laura Dawes. Childhood Obesity in America: Biography of an Epidemic. Cambridge, Mass. Obesity is a critical health problem in the United States. The implications of obesity for physical and mental health start in young childhood and extend throughout adulthood, and obesity is far more prevalent than other significant child morbidity such as asthma or ADHD. Recent research demonstrates the interaction of these factors, many of which are beyond the control of an individual child or family. The complexity underlying the causes of obesity also presents a challenge to the historian: how to adequately address the medical, political, and popular history of such a complicated phenomenon.
