1999; * A component cause is an individual’s environmental or behavioral factor that often works in ­conjunction with other factors sufficient for disease occurrence (Rothman and Greenland 1998). 19 Introduction Finkelstein et al. 2003). The cause of obesity is likely to be multifactorial, resulting from the interaction of environmental and behavioral factors.
