Obesity is not as straightforward as it might seem, and there are many, wideranging reasons behind it. In this View from 22 special, Spectator Health editor Max Pemberton discusses Britain's worsening obesity crisis – and what can be done about it – with Dr Sarah Jarvis, a GP and journalist, Dr Aaron Parkhurst, a medical anthropologist at University College London and Julia Manning, chief executive of 2020 Health.

How much of a role does gender and ethnicity play in obesity? Does where you live affect your weight? Are socioeconomic factors important, and have modern lifestyles made the issue worse? And is there any correlation between lower income households and obesity?
