In an article entitled "Population adiposity and climate change," which was published in the International Journal of Epidemiology, Phil Edwards and Ian Roberts of the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine write that "world-wide, over one billion adults are overweight and around 300 million are obese", which state of affairs, they suggest, "has serious implications for health, increasing the risk of type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, stroke and some cancers." What seems to concern them even more, however, are what they call the "serious implications" that the growing body mass index (BMI) of the world’s human population have for the temperature of the planet.
