Multinational Study Shows Support For Policies and Laws Against Weight Discrimination

Government policies and laws against weight discrimination have broard public support in four nations where this form of bias is prevalent, according to a new multinational study by the Rudd Center for Food Policy & Obesity at the University of Connecticut. The findings of the study, published in The Milbank Quarterly, suggest that a key condition needed to foster policy change – strong public support – is present in the United States and three other countries surveyed.
