Fat, Fate, and Disease

Why exercise and diet are not enough

Peter Gluckman and Mark Hanson

  • Explores one of the biggest issues facing society today - obesity - addressing a lot of the mythology around obesity and weight loss
  • Challenges the current science surrounding the causes of obesity, suggesting that the current approach does not work
  • Suggests that current scientific efforts ignore the reality of the social, cultural, and biological determinants that make different populations and people respond differently to living in the modern nutritionally rich world
  • Considers the new scientific knowledge and suggests a clear pathway forward for the future of our health and stability
