Description

In this ABC News special (produced in conjunction with Rodale Inc., publisher of Prevention and Men’s Health magazines), nutritionists, psychologists, pediatricians, and other experts explore the causes of obesity, the physical and emotional damage it can do, and how parents and schools can team up to help kids improve their health.

Also included is hidden-camera footage of a daring social experiment in which a slim teen, professionally made up to look obese, goes to school and experiences firsthand the abuse so often aimed at overweight people. A post-experiment discussion underscores the stigmatizing effect of intolerance while emphasizing the need for greater compassion.

In English, with English-language subtitles. Viewing time: 43 minutes. 2003.
