The Deadly Obesity Epidemic

With over two thirds of Americans overweight or obese, this chronic disease, obesity, has become the number one health problem in our nation and around the world. This disease that is killing our children is barely a blip on the radar of issues that need to be addressed. Why? The Deadly Obesity Epidemic documents how a food environment filled with sugar, sugary drinks and processed food changes people's food processing hormonal balance in such a way that it causes obesity and diabetes. This new understanding challenges the old energy imbalance model of obesity that has set up people to become fat and sick through no fault of their own, or through lack of willpower to control their diet and exercise more. The Deadly Obesity Epidemic challenges the medical community, the food industry and nutritional science to do better, before it's too late. This is a long term global challenge that has both health and economic implications!
