This report explores the future impact of new technologies on obesity and health over the next 20 years. It does this by: identifying future opportunities where new technologies could help manage health and weight more successfully; analysing the future impact of new technologies on lifestyle, dietary habits, and activity levels - both positive and negative (such as increased inactivity due to labour-saving devices); exploring how different parts of society may adopt or reject these solutions. The scope of this report does not include pharmacology, genetics, or food science as such, but instead looks at the surrounding societal technologies, particularly those concerned with information and communications technology (ICT) and the built environment.
