"Fat and Happy?"
This episode discusses America's latest epidemic, obesity. While 20% of adults are clinically obese, now 25% of children are too, and the proportion is steadily increasing. What shape will Americans be in within a decade or so? The program looks at research on fad diets; on the real relationships between activity and weight; on how well- meaning mothers teach their kids to overeat; on how obese research subjects bend the truth about what they eat; and on the movement of Native Americans, suffering from widespread obesity-related diabetes, to get back to traditional wild food diets.
