The COVID-19 pandemic has added to our existing problems. Its unequal effects have worsened a worldwide obesity crisis impacting our health and imposing huge burdens on healthcare systems and the global economy. Many of our health problems are caused by long-term changes in our diets, which must be addressed if we are to improve the health outcomes of future generations.
