The Men Who Made Us Fat

 

It’s a refreshing change to watch a prime-time, mainstream programme that actually gets to the heart of the number one health issue that the nation faces.  The Men Who Made Us Fat stands in stark contrast to the constant diet of freak shows on Channel 4 (Supersize vs Superskinny, Secret Eaters etc…) as it attempted to explain, in a thorough, yet accessible manner, the history behind our current predicament and included some prize moments, such as a beverage manufacturer’s spokeswoman claiming black is white!

It’s a rather depressing tale of outright greed, political cowardice and how just a few individuals with axes to grind shaped the nutritional guidelines of the US and Britain and got it so wrong…

 

…it’s definitely worth an hour of your time!
