The war we have begun to wage on fat, which is supposed to make us healthy and happy by reducing obesity, may be having the opposite effect.

Guest: Susan Greenhalgh, professor of Anthropology at Harvard University, author of Fat-Talk Nation: the Human Costs of America’s War on Fat and Under the Medical Gaze: Facts and Fictions of chronic Pain.
