    For several years, lower food prices were thought to lead to excess food consumption, and that low prices for fuel encouraged more motorised transport and automated labour, reducing physical activity. It might follow that a rise in the price of these commodities would bring an era of better diets and more active living. However, we fear a rise in food and fuel prices will worsen the disease burden and exacerbate health inequalities.
