Abstract

Obesity is arguably a worldwide threat due to the attention the subject has received in the last

decade. Rates of food insecurity have arisen and thus a link made between both food insecurity and

obesity. The impact of cheap, accessible high energy food is often strongly argued in explaining

these trends.
