It reports on the following common items often associated with both food insecurity and obesity:
- Limited Resources and Lack of Access to Healthy, Affordable Foods
- Cycles of Food Deprivation and Overeating
- High Levels of Stress, Anxiety, and Depression
- Fewer Opportunities for Physical Activity
- Greater Exposure to Marketing of Obesity-Promoting Products, and
- Limited Access to Health Care
It concludes "That food insecurity and obesity can co-exist and are significantly associated in some studies does not necessarily mean they are causally linked to each other."
The key takeaway for me is that food insecurity leads to poor health, obesity leads to poor health, the combination of both leads to even poorer health.
