Conseils aux médias :

Please don’t contribute to weight bias in the media. Don't assign blame or perpetuate negative stereotypes. Mention and illustrate the roots of obesity and obesogenic environments, and encourage help-seeking. Always use people-first language, and neutral and scientific words. You can find respectful, free-to-use images at the World Obesity Federation Image Bank and the ECPO image bank.
