The causes of obesity are multifactorial and not fully the result of personal responsibility, although poor nutritional intake and sedentary lifestyle play their part. There are strong genetic and epigenetic factors, in addition to the influence of gut hormones, gut microbes and viruses, and environmental factors (such as the promotion of sugar and refined carbohydrates). There is also evidence that psychological and mental health conditions are risk factors for obesity, and vice versa.
