Professor Inez de Beaufort gave the Council's 2010 annual lecture on ethics, obesity and public health, at the Royal Society.
Watch a video of the lecture.
Professor de Beaufort made arguments around four propositions:
1. An individual ought to lose weight or not become obese because it is healthy and therefore in his/her own interest.
2. An individual ought to lose weight because obesity is a sign of a weak character.
