Fat Politics by J. Eric Oliver

"By worrying about our weight, we are focusing on the wrong target," J. Eric Oliver writes in his newly released book, Fat Politics: The Real Story Behind America's Obesity Epidemic.

A review of the book can be found at the Los Angeles Times site.

"[W]e are not getting diabetes, cancer, and heart disease because of how much we weigh; we are getting these problems partly because of how and what we eat" — and too little exercise.

I just ordered the book myself and once I've had a chance to read it, I'll post a complete review. In the meantime, I've included it here since it looks like a great read. If any of my readers have comments about the book, email me and I'll try to include viewer comments in my review in the next week or so!
