Googling Obesity


While the term "healthy weights" has caught on in public health circles, it has not fared well in the media. There aren't enough news articles referencing "healthy weights" to even register on Google Trends(tm). The public search interest in "healthy weights," on the other hand, has stayed flat for years, with some fluctuation. The good news: Canadians, after Australians, show the most interest in the concept of "healthy weights". Interestingly, people searching on information via Google from three Canadian cities - Edmonton, Ottawa, and Calgary - demonstrate relatively high interest in the concept of "healthy weights."
