transport systems. Transport systems that foster passive methods of transport, such as car travel, can increase the risk of obesity. In one study, residents of New South Wales who drove to work were 13 per cent more likely than non-car commuters to be overweight or obese and significantly less likely to achieve recommended levels of physical activity (AIHW, 2010). Also, those lacking access to transport may find it difficult to access fresh fruit and vegetables, which can increase reliance on processed foods. This can increase the risk of obesity.
