Rethinking Obesity: Nature vs. Nurture? (15:59)

FREE PREVIEW

As a species we’ve been getting larger over the past 50 years and obesity is at epidemic proportions in some Western societies. So why are we doing so much damage to ourselves, our health services and our planet? Is it mainly due to nurture, the environment? Or is it more to do with nature, our biology? In Rethinking Obesity, featuring contributions from two of the leading figures in this debate, Dr. Clare Llewellyn of University College London and Dr. Giles Yeo of Cambridge University, we examine the evidence for and against these views and suggest a third explanation - the relationship between our genes and the environment in which we live.
