Kim & Knesebeck (2018) alludes to the reversal of the causality processes that need to be researched as another component of income and obesity rates. The study also postulates that while research on household income and obesity has been studied, further research needs to investigate obesity and income relationships outside Western societies (Kim & Knesebeck, 2018).
