Why are we so fat and what can we do about it?
Obesity has become a modern epidemic. Far from being merely a cosmetic issue, it is often associated with significant health consequences. Some of these consequences will be so significant that if this problem is not addressed, they threaten to consume the health budget. In this talk Dr Kiroff explores the causes of obesity and measures we as a society may implement to minimize this problem.
