Summary
Despite the success of the diet industry and the growing awareness of obesity as a genuine health risk, the human body does need fat. This program reveals the benefits as well as the dangers of body fat while illustrating the characteristics found in various types of fat tissue. Explaining how and why fat evolved and how it behaves differently depending on the individual, the program also studies the ability of fat cells to communicate with other parts of the body and how some fats may produce illnesses-for example, Alzheimer's and cancer. The dubious nature of many anti-fat drugs and their unfortunate consequences are explored; the program also outlines certain medical cures that have resulted from studying fat and points to the naturally slimming qualities of smart eating
