    Article, Communication - En anglais


    American Health Foundation Roundtable on Healthy Weight. New York, NY USA, 1994/09/20.

    « Policy » is defined as a definite course of action adopted for reasons of expedience, prudence, wisdom, or common sense.

    What can be said about policy and healthy weights ?

    We must draw conclusions from the evidence offered for the comorbidities associated with overweight.

    Then we must ask, what is a healthy weight ?

    How much gain or loss will suffice to arrive at a healthy weight ?

    What other issues such as economics and mental health costs affect policy ?

    To facilitate the process, I will review the policy issues for which there is already a consensus and then outline the evidence available from which this group might gain perspective for formulating practical public health recommendations.
