That's the title of an HBO "special" that will air in May. I'm sure it will have plenty of people with their heads cut off.
Sadly, that's what they do to obese people. And it will discuss diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and strokes. I'm sure it will discuss the cost of health care. Currently, 17 percent of GDP is health care related. And it's predicted to be 25 percent by 2025 (predictions of U.S. bankruptcy).
Here's the scoop: We do not have an obesity epidemic. We have a food crisis. It's the food, the food, the food. By pinning the problem on obesity, the fork in the road that we take will, most definitely, lead us in the wrong direction. We must address the horrific food environment.
Once you realize that much of the so-called food we eat is poison, it is easier to reject it.
There's no need to wait on the HBO special. The late Peter Jennings did a masterful job explaining the problem in this documentary: How to Get Fat Without Really Trying.
