This fascinating documentary looks at obesity. Stockholm’s Dr. Stephan Rossner, an obesity specialist, proves beyond doubt that obesity is a man-made epidemic. Super-sized fast foods and a $12 billion ad industry are proving to be lethal when mixed with a car-dominated culture, urban sprawl and labour-saving technologies. This film was launched by the NFB and the CBC in partnership with the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada and Physical and Health Education Canada.

    The Canadians have a much more realistic view of this issue. The causes and solutions of obesity are clearly presented as the illness that it truly is, not as a personality flaw, as viewed in the States. Hopefully, the world will follow Canada in finding healthy solutions to obesity, not spend time on finding blame.
