I've come to this late, and am trying to catch up, but here's the information for anyone who may want to do the same... what I have been able to watch so far has been more than worth my time. I'll be recording my notes here, so you can read and see if it may be worth your time, too!
"For Decades We've Been Getting Fatter
Since the dawn of the industrial revolution and access to plentiful yet increasingly unhealthy “fast” food… we've been getting fatter, aging more quickly and just becoming downright sicker.
In fact, studies show a dramatic increase in obesity from just the early 60s.
“From 23% obesity in 1962, reaching 39.4% in 1997, 44.5% in 2004, 56.6% in 2007, and 63.8% (adults) and 17% (children) in 2008. In 2010, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported higher numbers once more, counting 65.7% of American adults as overweight, and 17% of American children, and according to the CDC, 63% of teenage girls become overweight by age 11."
This brand new documentary series (9 episodes) brings together over 50 top experts in the world to finally uncover WHY we keep getting fatter and unhealthier… and WHAT we need to do to take back our health and future."

Dr. Jason Fung: "Holy consensus, Batman. With so many 'experts' from Michelle Obama to the USDA to virtually all of the medical professionals (including doctors and dieticians) agreeing that 'Eat Less, Move More' is the way to go, you might think that it is 100% unquestionably true. But here's a queer thought... if we all agree that we know the cure for obesity, and we've spent billions on educations and programs - why are we getting fatter? In other words, why does this 'cure' suck so bad?
