Full Episode Summary

The U.S. isn't the only country with an obesity problem. This week's Global Pulse looks at the tactics being deployed worldwide by nations facing an epidemic of obesity. Looking to combat unwanted effects of our modern era's sedentary lifestyle, countries are harkening back to the salad days with campaigns encouraging exercise for adults and children, and the avoidance of fatty foods. As these broadcasters make clear, tackling the problem of childhood obesity requires parental involvement and better access to healthy food.SOURCES: ABC, U.S.; Once Noticias, Mexico; RT, Russia; France 24, France; Al Jazeera English, Qatar; KBS, South Koreamoreless
