The men who made us thin

The BBC is currently running a series called the men who made us thin. In this four-part series Jacques Peretti investigates the connections between obesity and weight loss, and confronts some of the professionals who make a great deal of money through our society’s desire to be slim. Jacques also explores the argument that in order to tackle the issue of obesity it’s important to stop simply focusing on weight loss solutions and to instead look at changing the food supply.

The series is available to view on iplayer until 5th September
