Abstract

Background: Efforts to reduce cardiometabolic disease often target individual-level risk factors. However, individual dietary behaviour and body mass index (BMI) may be influenced by the geographic patterning of food sources and local-area norms. Norms figure prominently in socio-behavioural theories yet spatial variations in norms have rarely been investigated in predicting individual health outcomes. This study assessed the contributions of fast-food availability and localarea norms for dietary behaviour and BMI to 10-year change in cardiometabolic risk.
