Ever seen a fat fox? Didn’t think so. Why is it that only humans – or animals in the care of humans – develop obesity? In this book, Professor Mike Gibney delves into the history of the human relationship with food. He traces the evolution of our modern diet and looks to science to offer solutions to the phenomenon of human obesity. He calls on governments to cease the single-issue ad-hoc approach and demands a massive governmental long-term investment in weight management.
