Fat - Mary Alexander
The nations of the developed world are fatter than they have ever been before. Pocket Issue looks at this growing problem and asks: Is rising obesity causing life expectancy to fall for the first time? How will our healthcare systems cope? What can we do to reverse this growing trend?
Fat: eating ourselves to death? squeezes behind the headlines to give you some well toned answers to the issues.
"Exactly what any busy person needs - the facts at your fingertips! Never get caught out again when a conversation starts on the big issues of our time." Jeremy Vine, BBC Radio 2 & Panorama
