How did we go from obesity rates of 9%, to 30% in less than a generation?
It’s official: there are now more fat people than skinny people in the world. For the first time in history, children are facing shorter lives than their parents. Over the last thirty-five years, obesity rates have more than doubled, leading to a massive and rapid increase in heart disease, kidney problems, high-blood pressure, and type 2 diabetes. How did we go from obesity rates of 9% to 30% in less than a generation? Why Are We Fat? explains the reasons for our rapid weight gain and looks at what we can do about it.
Presented by Chef Simon Gault, a diabetic who talks to experts from around the world and becomes a human guinea-pig in an attempt to improve his own health, “Why Are We Fat?” examines the science behind obesity, new evidence, and the looming health crisis. In this 3-part series, Simon Gault talks about the obesity epidemic and the disease he was embarrassed to have.
