Fault Lines - Obesity in America

Fettleibigkeit, Übergewicht - das Paradebeispiel ist die USA, aber wir sind auch nicht mehr weit davon entfernt:  "Solange ein Hamburger billiger ist als ein Apfel..." wird es schwierig, eine Lösung für dieses Problem zu finden...
Interessante Doku von AlJazeera!

Obesity in America has reached a crisis point. Two out of every three Americans are overweight, one out of every three is obese. One in three are expected to have diabetes by 2050. Minorities have been even more profoundly affected. African-Americans have a 50 per cent higher prevalence of obesity and Hispanics 25 per cent higher when compared with whites. How did the situation get so out of hand? On this week's episode of Fault Lines, Josh Rushing explores the world of cheap food for Americans living at the margins. What opportunities do people have to eat healthy? Who is responsible for food deserts and processed food in American schools? Fault Lines finds food revolutions taking place and speaks with the people that are fighting back.
This is an interesting report showing these problems in the US but most of the "Western Civilizations" will be facing almost the same ones, at least Germany will!!!
