Summary
At more than 800 pounds, Jeremy Norman has spent two years entirely bedridden. Can an exact cause of his condition be pinpointed? Is his lifestyle or the food industry to blame? This program explores the politics and personal stories behind obesity, one of America's greatest health threats. After studying the scope of the crisis, the film profiles Jeremy and other patients who struggle with weight, examines promising research and treatment methods, and presents commentary from a variety of experts. These include Justin Wilson of the Center for Consumer Freedom; Dr. Kaare Norum, a senior WHO scientist; and Dr. John F. Banzhaf, a renowned opponent of corporate policies that encourage addiction
