Summary
Not so long ago, countries like Mexico, India, and China counted malnutrition as a major health concern. Today, hundreds of millions of people in these countries are coping with obesity and its associated diseases, growing fatter, and at a faster rate, than Americans. This program explores the shocking explosion of global obesity and examines its links to increasing wealth and changing diets. The video travels to Mexico, where two-thirds of the population is overweight due to the popularity of soft drinks; to Brazil, where cheap, highly processed foods are found in even the most remote areas; to India, where a combination of better wages and genetic predisposition has experts predicting a diabetes epidemic; and to China, where a new middle class consumes more sugar and fat, and far more often, than ever before
