The Men Who Made Us Fat
Ep: 3 "Men Who Made Us Fat; The"
Around the world, obesity levels are rising - more people are now overweight than undernourished. Investigative journalist Jacques Peretti explores the profitable ways eating habits have been revolutionized over the last 40 years, from the introduction of high-fructose corn syrup as a sweetener in the 1970s, to the “super-sizing” of portions and the similar effect on our waistlines, and the marketing campaigns that seduce us into buying “healthy” foods that are anything but.
