Abstract
"Narrated by Katie Couric, the film blows the lid off everything that was known about food and exercise, revealing a 30-year campaign by the food industry, aided by the U.S. government, to mislead and confuse the American public. Exposing the hidden truths contributing to one of the largest health epidemics in history, it follows a group of families battling to lead healthier lives and reveals why the conventional wisdom of 'exercise and eat right' is not ringing true for millions of people." -- Worldcat

Abstract
It's been called the world's first man-made epidemic, and it's killing us. In this riveting documentary, Dr. Stephan Rossner of Stockholm, an expert on obesity, leads us through startling evidence of how our society has created this toxic environment. Cheaper production, "supersized" fast foods and a $12 billion advertising industry are lethal when mixed with a car-dominated culture, urban sprawl and labour-saving technologies. Although North America is the epicentre of obesity, this disease is being exported worldwide as a by-product of western culture. Infiltrating low-income communities and developing nations, obesity is creating a potentially bankrupt health system
