The Panic About Obesity
A panel discussion on obesity at the Institute of Ideas' The Battle of Ideas Conference 2006.The health panic about obesity seems to know no end. We are constantly warned that being overweight is dangerous, and that obesity will soon be the biggest 'preventable' cause of ill-health, even overtaking smoking.That has meant an endless diet of keep fit and lifestyle shows, a crusade about school meals and a ban on 'junk food' advertising to children - including that famously poisonous concoction, cheese. Hospital patients have even been refused surgery if they don't slim down. What are the facts about obesity, and what should we do about it? - IoICamera by David Dunbar for http://www.18doughtystreet.commoreless
