  3. The Consuming Geographies of Food: Diet, Food Deserts and Obesity

    The consumption and distribution of food, as well as its production, has become a major public policy issue over the past few decades; what we eat is no longer merely a private matter but carries significant externalities for wider society.

It offers a multifaceted examination of food consumption from the consumer’s perspective, and comprehensive review of the obesity problem, the phenomenon of food deserts, and the issue of exclusion from a healthy diet.
