How the world could better fight obesity

A 2014 report from the McKinsey Global Institute. 

The discussion paper, Overcoming obesity: An initial economic analysis, offers an independent view on the components of a potential anti-obesity strategy. MGI has studied 74 interventions (in 18 areas) that are being discussed or piloted somewhere around the world to address obesity, including subsidized school meals for all, calorie and nutrition labeling, restrictions on advertising high-calorie food and drinks, and public-health campaigns.
