MARTINEZ ESPINOSA, Alejandro. The consolidation of the obesogenic environment in Mexico. Estud. soc [online]. 2017, vol.27, n.50. ISSN 0188-4557.

Objective: To consider the role of State, food industry and population in the consolidation of obesogenic environment in México, beyond the prevailing individualistic approach of obesity. Methodology: Documentary review -including specialized articles, official reports and journalistic articles- from a historical point of view. Results: Ideological foundations of the State, in first time, and the late economic opening -which food industry took advantage of it- gave impulse to the dietary patterns change. On the other hand, at the population level highly industrialized food consumption has been associated to socioeconomic improvement. Limitation: General processes depicted require specific empirical analyses. Conclusion: To analyze in a joint way the governmental, industrial and population actions, is necessary to understand and to answer the health risks of obesogenic environment.
