Over the last fifteen years as a health expert and a clinician it has become clear to me that our obesity and food related disease epidemic is not just about people being lazy and having little discipline. In recent years more and more of my patients are having difficulty losing weight. The patients who did drop belly fat often would return within a year with the same issues and sometimes have even gained more than where they started. This project began as a simple research project to find out what is causing my patient’s waistlines to balloon and rare diseases in children to become common. It turned into a major exploration into our modern food system and what it’s doing to our health, our economics, and our families. Please allow me to share the results with you. It’s truly astonishing what has happened!
