The Obesity Epidemic: What caused it? How can we stop it?
Dr Zoe Harcombe

Summary: The Diabetes/Obesity epidemic begins in 1980 three years after the introduction of the low fat dietary advice by the United States Department of Agriculture. In this presentation I present information detailed in my book Obesity, of the factors driving the obesity epidemic in the United Kingdom and globally. Attempts to reverse the obesity epidemic require that the special role of hunger and addictive food choices must be considered. A return to eating of real foods and avoidance of addictive highly processed foods is central to any future attempts to reverse the current obesity epidemic. This requires interventions that go beyond what individual physicians and dieticians can achieve.
