What if we are being programmed from birth to be fatter than we should be? That question is at the heart of new research into endocrine-disrupting chemicals, chemicals that may be contributing to the obesity epidemic.
Over the past three decades, the developed world has become increasingly overweight, even after years of struggling to eat less and exercise more. Some scientists began to wonder whether there was something else at play in the obesity epidemic, particularly when they noticed that lab animals used in experiments with chemicals were putting on weight. PROGRAMMED TO BE FAT? explores controversial new science that suggests exposure to environmental chemicals may be a key factor in the global obesity epidemic.
