The challenge to the US food industry in the 1970s was that their population was growing more slowly than their food supply. The answer was supersized portions, fast food, too little exercise, take-aways, the constant drip-feed of saturated fat and sugar, producing a society in which 61 per cent of the population is overweight. Heart disease, cardiovascular problems, strokes and above all diabetes are the result. This is an account of the history and biology of the fattening of America at the moment when it is emerging as a political issue too.Hide synopsis

In the tradition of peer works, including the documentary "Super Size Me", Critser is another voice bringing to light the rise of obesity and type II diabetes in America. He brings out that while overweight people certainly look overfed, they are in fact often malnourished. Statistically, and often circumstancially, the poor are the most likely to be weight afflicted. It is hard to lose weight on Kraft Dinner and slurpees and Coke (cheaper than milk). Calling out the ruthless marketers who find more and more ways to bring us bigger servings and make them appealing, Fat Land is a wake up call for those who care about America's health.
