Fat Fiction Fat, lies and measuring tape

Do you not think it's well... a bit odd? The fact that the world has suddenly grown fat in a single generation? Since the explosion of gyms, low-fat foods, calorie counting and government healthy eating advice, 1 in 4 people in Britain are obese, and 2 in 3 are overweight. What's going wrong?
