Attitudes about the industrialization of food have changed greatly over the past several decades. This DVD traces the rise and fall of processed food, from promising a cure for malnourishment to eventually being linked to obesity, heart disease, and cancer. Using the BBC’s archival footage, the program also reviews 20th century theories about the cause of obesity, and the diets and
miracle cures designed to combat weight gain. Only available in the U.S. 52 minutes. Copyright 2010.
