Blaming The Food For The Obesity


"Fat shaming" might not even have been a term yet when we talked to Dr. Robert Lustig early last year. 

But he's well aware of obesity, especially in kids, in his job as a pediatric endocrinologist. 

Lustig does not hold the kids responsible, but he has choice words for the food industry in his book Fat Chance: Beating the Odds Against Sugar, Processed Food, Obesity, and Disease.  We step off the scale and listen to this interview again.
