If you want to understand how we got here as a nation, with over 40% of our population either diabetic or on the way, a very good book that examines the economics and cultural forces in play is THE FATTENING OF AMERICA, by Eric A. Finkelstein and Laurie Zuckerman. Highly recommended.

Also, scroll down to the left of this blog and watch HOW TO GET FAT by Peter Jennings.

Now we know. We cannot be blamed for living in a culture that makes it harder to get good food, and harder to exercise, than in years past. It takes special effort and yes, money, to solve the weight problem. Both of these media examinations of the issue will make you feel better about solving the diabetes problem.
