Associations of health, physical activity and weight status with motorised travel and transport carbon dioxide emissions : a cross-sectional, observational study

Abstract:

BACKGROUND: Motorised travel and associated carbon dioxide (CO₂) emissions generate substantial health costs; in the case of motorised travel, this may include contributing to rising obesity levels. Obesity has in turn been hypothesised to increase motorised travel and/or CO₂ emissions, both because heavier people may use motorised travel more and because heavier people may choose larger and less fuel-efficient cars. These hypothesised associations have not been examined empirically, however,...
