OBESITY: AN INSIDE VERSUS OUTSIDE VIEW Jimmy Bell and the Little Prince A science-in-fiction dedicated to World Obesity Day 2017

George N Chaldakov


      Since 2015 the World Obesity Foundation has been organizing the World Obesity Day on 11 October. Motto of World Obesity Day 2017 was: "We need to treat obesity now to avoid its consequences later". Accordingly, one of the appeals of World Obesity Foundation proclaimed: `We are calling on all governments, health service providers, insurers and philanthropic organisations to prioritise investment in tackling obesity. This means investing in obesity treatment services, early intervention and prevention.`
