The World is Fat, The Book


"The global obesity epidemic affects all of us—families, communities, and nations around the world. It's a weighty subject in every way, with dire consequences for well being, life expectancy, and economic productivity in the years ahead unless seriously confronted. The World is Fat is compelling reading on this complex and growing societal threat."

Jeffrey D. Sachs, Director of the Earth Institute at Columbia University and author of The End of Poverty and Common Wealth

"The most serious epidemic ever is insidiously engulfing the world. Barry Popkin draws upon his decades of research and experience to describe its origins—and a set of potential solutions. Those interested in the future of mankind should read this book."

Walter Willett, author of Eat, Drink, and Be Healthy, and chair, Department of Nutrition, Harvard University
