Around the world, obesity levels are rising. More people are now overweight than undernourished. Two thirds of British adults are overweight and one in four of us is classified as obese. In the first of this three-part series, Jacques Peretti traces those responsible for revolutionising our eating habits, to find out how decisions made in America 40 years ago influence the way we eat now.
In 40 short years the people in Britain and the United States have been gaining weight at an astonishing rate. This show examines a number of the causes. It will be interesting to see what the next 2 episodes bring.
