get plenty of time. i think we saw the basal in the mean thing. the faculty it's a man made tragedy. ah, earlier my life. i thought that my weight was all my fault. i felt like a failure and frankly unworthy. and it took me awhile to really start question, believe and challenging those thoughts like well, are you really a failure? and the answer is no, i'm not. i'm not. but it took a while to get to that point. ah, obesity. a blob of our arrows fantasies caught in a web was prejudiced. it prompts scolding for poor choices and accusations of laziness. omnipotent genes provide an alibi. what it will be city were collected,
failure, not an individual symptom of the free market that hates, that, that produces fax, those and a be for genic society, the news, the global phenomenon, not one country to talk today. ah, the right now there are 2000000000 people adults and children who are overweight or. busy obese, this only happen by magic, it takes work and you need to look at who it is, is driving that process. well, otherwise we live in, in societies in which, you know, one on of every 3 people has diabetes where everybody's obese, where people are dying of stroke and heart attack at age 40. i mean, the choice is an obvious one. if we don't do something,
we will collapse as society is not just in america, but in mexico and russia, and china and europe. it's happening everywhere. almost everywhere in the world, men and women are battling this fate. political leaders position regular citizens. they brave the multinational. we truly believe that the industry is wrong and that they are poisoning and targeting people, and people need to know about it. with wielding the weapons of law science and public policy. they want to help us regain control of our body. in the, in the 1st years of the 21st century western countries declared war on obesity. to
no avail. experts estimate that by 2030 there will be 250000000 obese children in the world. the government taken the right pack ah, ah, at least 2 such men and women in the k or as a way to right. ah, basically life changing impact on the body. slowly low your quality of life. ah. according to the messages spread far and wide, we alone are to blame for our weight. fat people are simply gluttons unable to control their appetites. you have a choice. make the change.
the we are told it's up to us. but is it really? for me, the most difficult stigma. copeland is this idea that the people have no willpower. the people and larger bodies people are busy, don't know if they will power or else they wouldn't carry excess weight because we're told so often that that's all it takes to lose weight. go to the gym, follow this diet program. you know, if you just stick to it, you'll get there. i think health issues, we're sure that a little personal will power was all it would take to lay obesity exercise more became the mantra of the 2000. it would go around the world. ah. so let's start moving. let's start pushing, twisting,
climbing and raising the roof. let's start moving more every day for 30 minutes or 6 feet. and if you feel like stopping, you can always start back up. let's start moving. it's so easy for us to look at being person and say they have set will power there. so moral and strong and then look at someone with a weight problem and attribute all of these negative traits. oh, they're just weak. they don't have willpower. it's not at the individual level, it's not individual willpower. and if we go on believing that or never change this obesity epidemic, hey everybody, you know, getting active every day helps us all be healthy and feel great. the same of ernest advised about exercise is proffered that the best intentions in 2010. michelle obama launched the campaign against child obesity. got to 1st lady
lead her to move your body aiming to set healthier standards for food, served in school lunch. when we send our kids to school, we have a right to expect that they won't be eating the kind of fatty salty, sugary food that we're trying to keep from them when they are at home. unfortunately, michelle obama was on the right track right from the beginning. and i think she got derailed by a mixture of bad advisors. and by bringing in the food, the food companies and they were able to dilute very powerful message down to something where, you know, it's just her on television, encouraging people to move that way rather than, let's move together as a movement to be able to transform the food system, the better became moved more just to be on the easily upstage the public service method
a boon to the multinational who quickly joined the dance in 2015. the coca cola created the global energy balance network. a worldwide think tank dedicated to solving the obesity problem gets out by promoting exercise. most of the focus in the popular media and in the scientific breath, you know they're eating too much eating too much, eating too much, blaming fast food, blaming sure, very drinks. and so on, and there's really virtually no compelling evidence of that. in fact is a car professor, steve blair is one of the head researchers recruited for the network. he's a specialist in physical exercise that may be the reason they're eating more calories than they need is because they're not burning many. so we need to be in balance. this is syndic transitional do here. okay, cuz it passes all the money back corner,
the full color i don't i guess to be because they do just fine. i'm just gonna put you on the phone. i just wanna be okay. here's how that translates to marketing. i just wanna be ok. the industry has been focused on the story of calories and calories out. no, you can drink what you want. just go, go on and jog and work off your calories. well, we know that actually is not true. that's not the true story in allegedly, to avoid waking. we would simply have to burn the same number of calories as we eat . the theory sounds logical. unfortunately, it is untrue. physical exercise actually plays a minor role in weight control. you have to jog for one hour to eliminate a hamburger i pick. so though, requires over 2 hours of running if you look at it from a calorie perspective,
that is the accumulation equals sort of calories in minus calories out. and they say, well that's always true because if you look at from, from a physics perspective, that is always true. but the problem is that that's the physics and we're dealing with human physiology and really has nothing to do with each other. i think we should take the focus off of calories. yes, you can eat less and lose weight for a short while, but your body will fight back. and over the long term, we know that metabolism is stronger than willpower. me, alright. if individual will power is not to blame. what cause the rise near the city curve starting in the 1980. so what's the difference between 197-2019? while i don't think it's the basic biology of the person, but it's something to do with the way that we eat both the types of food and the
frequency of the foods that we in, in 40 years are eating habits that under gone a real revolution fermented by public health policies of the late 19 seventies. at the time, cardiovascular disease was the grim reaper, causing millions of the senate special committee on nutrition looking into the connection between diet and hot sugar lobby succeeded in having a high fat diet declared guilty of false verdict. but had serious consequences. public health officials recommended that we could do that and take a fat grains counted as clustering, free, replace meat as a stable food and so eating more brad more brace more potatoes for example, because they're very low fat and, you know, eating less dairy less meet low fat dairy, that kind of thing, that was the standard advice for so many years. and i think that is the most likely
culprit as to why people have gain weight. u. s. government called on the food industry to market thousands of processed foods that were reduced in fat and century contract. so if you're the food industry and you're supposed to reduce fat, what are you going to replace it with? well processed grains and sugar. the grow industry, slight of hand, made the transition payment, sugar, a cheaper placement for fat made light. casey and the chemist went to work extruding, ingredient supermarket shelves filled with attractively package, starches, reprocessed, the bread, cornflakes, and convenience to the food industry. did what they were told, they were happy to do it because sugar is actually cheaper than fat. so they could
increase their and call these products headphones. public ultimately paid the price. the, the one man you knew were the one in for children here right now is overweight. one of the big reasons with our thinking, we give them biscuit sweets, kristen chocolate, every day. eating excessive sugar causes deep dysfunctions inside our bodies, starting with a hormone and balanced. when you eat certain hormones go off, and the main hormone that's involved in energy metabolism is insulin. insulin determines whether the calories we eat confirmed or get stored as fat. the join me every thursday on the alex simon show and i'll be speaking to guess in the world, the politics sport,
business and show business. i'll see you then me algorithm. so neural networks have been following us every where we look online, because our relationships are what matters most of us. and that's how we find meaning and how we make sense in our place in the silicon valley see don't mention in their sleep presentations. however, i think ghost workers who train the software human, they're involved in every step of the process when you're using anything online. but we're sold as this miracle of automation behind your screen. it's available workforce that seems algorithm is for next to nothing on a very good day. i could do $5.00. now. a really bad day. i could do 10 years worth is removable by design. it's about labor costs,
but it's also about creating layers of western responsibility between those who solicit the kind of work and need it. and those who do it glucose sugar that is fuels nearly all living cells. when we eat our pancreas secretes insulin. oh, and this entry is what transport sugar to ourselves when our diets are heavy and foods that are starchy and sweet by processed foods, in fact, our insulin levels are constantly high. ah. with too much in our fat cells. the fat tissue in our body takes up to many calories and hold on to them. so there aren't enough calories for the rest of the body. there aren't enough calories for the muscle, for the organs in the brain. and that's why we get hungry. so these highly
processed food, fast foods should read beverages and junk foods that were snacking on the digest very quickly, but they don't provide much satiety. so it's these processed carbohydrates that driveway. ah, despite the negative impact these ultra process food, tablet, metabolism, nothing has got their spread, the. it's profitable to sell food that is fatty and sugary and faulty and addictive, is much less profitable to sell food that is wholesome, that is high in fiber. and is minimally processed. so what's driving the obesity epidemic? it's corporate problem. me this. dietary revolution has father empires,
nestle unit lever coca cola kellogg's pepsico. currently, a handful of huge corporations own nearly every brand of food. together they pull in $500000000000.00 in annual sales and have taken control of our dinner plate. the food is a huge sector by society. it's not only the food company, it's not just a nestle in gannons and coke and pepsi. it's the food retailers, it's the walmarts and curry force. it's the agra. businesses are huge, that control all the supplies a commodities. and then also the marketers, it's all the advertises, making money from marketing junk food and beverages to people. so we're talking about massive, massive component of our society is focused on selling the world.
unhealthy food and beverage, the food multi nationals have a secret weapon, price. the products they sell are up to 60 percent for the fresh foods the shoppers, but the smallest budget stuck up with these low income consumers sitting ducks are the primary victims of the system. the the, the hamilton family lives in one of washington's poorest neighborhoods. a few miles from the white house, the fresh produce is nearly impossible to find within walking distance. yes. the
you got the washington wealthier areas near the city rate is 10 percent. here it is next 42 percent of the population. today's new features, not ground beef and tomato sauce, with extra sugar garnished with sour cream. one last prepared meal and the body will consume die will not out to be done in jesus name. we do pray, a miss a man that was a locally owned family restaurant had abandoned the hamiltons, inner city neighborhood. fast food chains rushed in to fill the vacuum. their impact is multiplied by an implacable marketing strategy that starts on the
street corner. the food industry says it's your fault, but the reality is they've changed. whole food environment saves, created a food environment where every place you turn, if it's on your smartphone, if it's on seeing a billboard, if it's seeing any kind of advertisement, if it's watching television or movies, you see their junk food being pushed. the manipulation starts with the children the mind to big studies show there is a direct link between the children, see, and the types of food they like to eat. the world health organization recommends regulating food commercials on tv, but the industry is in genuine, infiltrate new areas, like social networks,
or online game. that's what marketing is supposed to do. that's what it's designed to do. they're very good at it. so the marketing was successful. the question is, was it helpful? the my help the sneak marketing hides the fact that junk food causes one of the most devastating diseases that exists. diabetes today, it kills one person every 6 seconds around the world. 25 years ago. if i told you that i have an 18 year old patient in my clinic with type 2 diabetes, you would have said, oh my gosh, it's incredible. it's so rare. it's so strange. now it's very commonplace that young people, children have type 2 diabetes were
like fighting a war at home. it's heartbreaking. it's unfair, it's unjust. people are making money off of this suffering. it's preventable. it's, it's dehumanizing to ignore it. it's in humane to ignore it. was kenny h 141 and willy 15 must take diabetes medication daily or killing those. it's actually math suicide in a way and in a country like mine, we don't give them health insurance and they've got the diabetes and they have the hypertension. we're killing a generation of poor the one of every 2 african american children will develop diabetes. one of every 5 african american children is obese. the rate is even higher among hispanics.
a young woman spoke out and triggered a rebellion. we like we still played yesterday, i decided to write down some really is the my day the big diet part. that was a 1000000 things from now. and then that was sugar flour, sugar, hijacking it oil group. oh wait out. her high school sugar. died a little 40 died brands to die. dad died. i heard a young woman who was 16 at the time and she performed upon that, even though it may remain the hair on my arm stand up. and for the 1st time i saw a young person describing the obesity and diabetes epidemic as a social problem. and i realized that she in a way is
a much more effective messenger than i ever could be. in spite christopher, i haven't even now diabetes. that is why id, like suicide news. jean shillinger is coordinating the energy his nonprofit youth speaks of writing workshops for young people in the bay area. he wants to use wrap and smoke and where to raise consciousness and thwart food industry propaganda . this idea that they were being lied to, that's what inspired them to become change agent. that's what turned their palm from being a piece of art into a weapon. armed with talent and a video camera, they launched an awareness campaign called the bigger picture. so for me, each one of those films as
a stone that we were throwing at at the waterhole and trying to see which one could make the biggest way to go middle my daily routine with the wake up walked through the bus pass and the liquor stores are past the 1st visit to the 2nd order. my favorite, well, hash brown bodies drawer and i don't know if we love deserting. i just love not being hungry, written and performed chiefly by young hispanics and african americans. the videos garnered over a 1000000 views on youtube. so i, i think awareness makes it possible for people to make choices. i think we're fighting to be heard. i think we're fighting, get the word out. i think we're fighting against interest that wants to see us fail
. as long as big soda spinning money. they don't sleep that the campaign a fight against them can't sweep. meanwhile, 3000 miles away on the east coast. another activist has risen up and coming to podium to tell a community it is being decimated. and how is a crisis in our community and from me as a crisis, because i'm finding that i'm losing more people to sweets than i am to the streets . and i'm losing more people, took diet related issues than i am to the streets to gun violence. this is an epidemic. and one that i'm deeply concerned about the already in his combat against this evil, reverend coats is not inhibited by the conventions associated with calling them.
this can of soda palm right. there are 39 grams of sugar. 39 grams of sugar in one cam. so don't know how many teaspoons of sugar is that anyone know how almost 10 years. i think what i want to see how much that is. so pastor coats actually the major demonstration doing a survey. and so that to me was like so impactful because i just never realized like how much sugar i was actually putting inside of my body every time i would drink a soda. and so i'm doing that at least $7.00 to $8.00 times per day. and maybe a half me this is how much sugar and then just one drink and our children are getting pre diabetic by the age of 9 and in borderline diabetes,
by the time that 13 years old and we are sabotaging the entire generation of our people because of sugar, people were very shocked. and when he poured the sugar inside the glass, they were like this demonstration show them what they probably should have learned like from childhood ah, for all of you out there that regret not being around the soviet union at the time with their collapse. a lot of people understand you about that. lot of interesting things. math time. was there writing in the journal. anyway, they got to have that experience today. right here in the good old usa
a hold of me? i the news . the headlines this our front set proves a new law, restrict thing, trouble and entree to public places for people without cobit help passes. but the move is proving divisive among businesses. i'm the public in london and christian preacher, who reportedly converted from islam is stopped at hyde parks, famous speakers corner. but while most media coverage focus on the back, she was wearing a shirley a t shirt. we take a more in depth look at the incident on 6 months since joe biden took over
