    PDF Fat Land PDF EPUB ì Ë kdglasscouk land book, Fat Land ePUBThere were some good points made in this book about the childhood obesity epidemic in the United States I enjoyed the first half of the book so than the second half The first half discussed the history of our food supply and key players in this history plus a lot about how child rearing changed during the last generation This book states the obvious many times but at the beginning of the book I was still intrigued enough to keep readingThe second half of the book is technical deals with diabetes and other health issues plus the author has some suggestions on how to solve some of our problems I was not as entertained toward the endConsidering the book has been around for many years I am interested in readin

    PDF Fat Land PDF EPUB ì Ë kdglasscouk land book, Fat Land ePUBWant to know why America is fat? This book will tell you Since I have read this book I have eaten McDonald's once in the last year or so and that was because I was drunk Very interesting to see how much the country has changed in 60 years since the war The book starts there how with budget cuts to the PE department and importing cheap and very fattening substitutes for homegrown goods can really cause a whole nation to pack on the pounds

    PDF Fat Land PDF EPUB ì Ë kdglasscouk land book, Fat Land ePUBI read this many years ago and have been telling people about it ever since because it's amazing how many people don't know why America had an epidemic of obesity first Ten years ago everyone in Europe was laughing at fat Americans blaming the epidemic on their super sized portions and assuming lazy people just ate too much fast food Now the same thing is happening firstly in the UK and now in the rest of Europe Many people are mystified The answer has been around for years but the focus on low fat food and exercise has obscured it and Greg Critser's book hasn't achieved the popularity it deservesThe answer is simple the American government made commercial deals with the palm oil industry in Malaysia and developed High Fructose Corn Syrup HFCS using the corn grown in the industrial scale farms of the USA Both these substances are cheap increase shelf life of food and both cause obesity In the UK the food industry adopted them later and lo and behol

    PDF Fat Land PDF EPUB ì Ë kdglasscouk land book, Fat Land ePUBI don't understand where I got on this kick with these industry expose books I seem to find them utterly fascinating even if they're about something I already know I guess it's the exact why and how and history of what we all know to be true that holds the draw for me I already knew the funeral industry was a scam but seeing exactly how the ruse is perpertuated in Mitfords' The American Way Of Death kept me chewing until the very last page Greg Critser's Fat Land is no exception Aside from Samoa and its immediate neighbors Americans are the fattest people on the planet We all know this We all know that it's a result of too much bad food and too little activity So what if anything is there to write about much less to fill a couple hundred pages? Plenty it turns out and it's all fascinatingly juicy stuff The 1970's saw America in a perilous economic position much like the one we stand in in 2008 In a

    PDF Fat Land PDF EPUB ì Ë kdglasscouk land book, Fat Land ePUBBook lives up to its title using current stats empirical data and lucid explanation as to why America is so massive Similar to Fast Food Nation and Spurlock's Supersize Me in intent Fatland is broader in investigation than the former less visceral than the latter and the result is an even handed account that examines the multiple often over lapping factors many of them political feeding the fat epidemic This book covers the usual subjects lack of PE in the public schools sedentary lifestyle gargantuan portions etc as well as the unusual less often discussed the corn lobby's highly lucrative by product high fructose corn syrup and the gerrymandering of the food pyramid and the not so

    PDF Fat Land PDF EPUB ì Ë kdglasscouk land book, Fat Land ePUB American health and medical experts already knew that saturated fats were bad for the cardiovascular system playing up arteries sending blood pressure spiraling and raising the chances that a consumer of such fats might diet a premature deathThis book was really informative about the changes McDonalds especially soda made to keep consumers buying their product Fast food is the culprit when it comes to fat people Some are addicted to it while others eat healthy and exercise

    PDF Fat Land PDF EPUB ì Ë kdglasscouk land book, Fat Land ePUBOk I let this book linger for far too long partially because of busy times at work However everytime I picked it up I couldn't put it back down Sure a lot of the information in this book has been covered in other popular books and films Fast Food Nation Super Size Me etc but this is the first book that really looks at how all the external influences overlapFor example instead of just blaming the fat problem on fast food this book also looks at how our diet what makes up our food has secretly changed without many of us knowing i
