As the owner of the Sport-Med list on the British national academic server, JISC, I have shared a large body of sources in posts to that list and to my network about obesity. Since Listserv lists do not provide persistent URLs for search results, I will provide in this post several links to this content in that each search system works diffrently and one can then chose the links that work best for them. I am also providing search results from around ten databases for the term obesity.
By the way one of the links I will provide is to Groups.IO. I am mentioning this as some, perhaps many of you do not have access to
own and run a list on a Listserv server. Groups.IO was started in September 2014 by Mark Fletcher, a former Yahoo Groups manager. Since I have had major serious problems with both Yahoo Groups and Google Groups, it is very good to have Groups.IO around. I no longer use Google Groups and I am not certaion that Yahoo Groups will continue if Yahoo is sold.
One Saturday evening Groups.IO was completely down. I searched my Temple email and quickly found Mark’s email address and sent him a post informing him of this problem. Within two hours, Groups.IO was back and an apology email went to me and one to the owner/moderator lists AND Mark was on his last day of vacation in Paris, France.
One reason to share this information is that folks on this list should consider creating public discussion groups with extensive content on physical fitness, obesity and other topics that you folks consider important to share. One can find and share a post with a citation, a link and excerpts in five to ten minutes if not complicated. Public lists get the message out via Google indexing and both WordPress for blogs and Groups.IO are well indexed by Google as is Listserv for public lists that anyone can view.
Here are the promised links.

Why is it important to share photographs of obesity and related matters. Certainly not for the images. One can click on any image and see a larger version of the image. This is still unimportant. One can also click on “visit page”. This is gold.
