What's Wrong with Fat?

Abigail C. Saguy

  • Systematically examines how the medical profession, researchers, corporate-sponsored associations, and the mass media, have transformed fatness into an international public health crisis.
  • From the way we discuss overweight and obesity to the way we frame the crisis, Saguy controversially argues that the war on obesity is literally making us sick.
