These first three videos are a little (okay, very) boring, but they do give a good set of background knowledge for anyone who wants to understand obesity better so I think they’re worth including.

These next few videos come from the Peter Jennings documentary “How to Get Fat Without Really Trying” and even though I’m not big on playing the blame game like Peter Jennings does here, I do think that some interesting ideas are brought to light in this documentary. The idea that what we grow (agriculture) has a direct impact on what we eat, and the idea that advertising to children may not be completely ethical are important concepts to explore when considering the American obesity epidemic.
