Health & Technology

Human behavior is both overt and covert and it is to a large extent influenced by the environment, often automatic. Arranging the environmental conditions so that people make better decisions, therefore, has the utmost potential for successful sustainable obesity prevention. However, in order to develop successful interventions, it is of vital importance to understand how environmental conditions influence individuals’ choices, and how they are constantly being altered through new stimuli.
