Abstract:

This program explores the obesity epidemic from a diverse array of perspectives. As we learn, a myriad of cultural factors have contributed to the weight of the nation, including agribusiness, marketing, socioeconomics, automation and convenience, and the relentless drive for corporate profits. Virtually everything about our modern world plays to our natural, biological urges to eat more and move less, preventing us from making the best choices for our health. To turn the epidemic around, a multidimensional approach is needed by individuals and businesses alike, supported by legislation from the highest levels of government.
