FAT tells the long-term, but completely true story of how our country became so unhealthy. By 1970, over 1.5 million people had been diagnosed with Diabetes in the United States. Now has over 30 million diabetes. Even more alarming is that 100 million people, 1 in 3, have diabetes or are pre-diabetes. This is not to mention the 40% of the overweight population. How is this possible with the non-stop flow of new diets, exercise equipment and our general obsession with health and weight loss? We're just as unhealthy as ever. The truth is that we've pretty much had everything upside down and backwards. The FAT traces a detailed history spanning over 150 years to show how misinformation and outright lies have become "truth."
