New paper in The Lancet

The Lancet has just published a series of articles on obesity.  They can be found here.  I am an author on the third paper, which covers the work Kevin Hall and I have been working on for the past seven years.  There was a press conference in London yesterday that Kevin attended and there is a symposium today.  The announcement has since been picked up in the popular press.  Here are some samples:  Science Daily, Mirror, The Australian, and The Chart at CNN.

  1. I have not followed Guyenet but what he wrote is reasonable although I would take his points further and propose that we eat more because supply has increased. However, it is still unknown why some people are immune to a surfeit of food.

  2. I am a former special education teacher and I wrote a children’s picture book that tackles the issue of childhood obesity. Hunka Chunka Monkey Shapes Up entertains children without being preachy. It places a simple truth as a foundation in their hearts…..to cut back on their favorite snack, become active and make new friends.

    Chris Powell of ABC’s Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition reads my book to his children every night. He stated on his FaceBook, “The kids are requesting Hunka Chunka Monkey Shapes Up for their bedtime story tonight….AGAIN! This is the third in a row, but I love it. What a great message of healthy living for children:). Nicely done, Sam E Bromley!” Chris’s wife, Heidi Powell, used such words as ‘amazing’ and ‘brilliant’ when describing my story! I am excited about getting this message out. You can go to YouTube.com and type in my book’s name: Hunka Chunka Monkey Shapes Up and see a brief message about my story! Please pass this on for all to see and partner with me and let us stop the obesity problem in America by encouraging the very young to skip, run and jump their way to a better life and a better future!
