If a solution to America's obesity problem is found, it will likely draw upon not only clinical factors but also social, cultural, and psychological considerations. In this classic episode of Scientific American Frontiers, host Alan Alda talks with Dr. George Blackburn of Boston's Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center to explore society's obsession with diets that promise quick, painless results. Alda also visits Arizona's Pima and Tohono O'odham Indians, who have the world's highest rate of obesity-related diabetes and now look to their traditional diets to save their culture and health. In addition, the program explores research on how obesity develops in children.
