New Report--Promoting Healthy Weights

The Canadian Population Health Initiative (CPHI) is pleased to announce
the release of the second report of the Improving the Health of
Canadians 2005-2006 Report Series, Promoting Healthy Weights. Promoting
healthy weights and treating obesity is a complex issue, which involves
a variety of factors including genetics and personal choices as well as
our social, cultural, physical and economic environments. Improving the
Health of Canadians: Promoting Healthy Weights looks at the features of
the environments in which we live, learn, work and play that make it
easier--or harder--for us as Canadians to make healthier choices about
what we eat and how physically active we are.
