Technical Abstract: A conference was held on obesity mostly in Asia. The presenters made talks on a broad variety of diet and physical activity issues. It was clear that obesity is a growing problem worldwide with a common lack of understanding of what is causing the epidemic or what can be effectively done about it. Much research needs to be done to redress the worldwide problem of childhood obesity.
