The role of diet vs. exercise in the obesity epidemic

Obesity is a disorder involving excessive body fat that increases the risk of health problems.

It occurs when a person’s body mass index is 30 or greater. The main symptom is excessive body fat, which increases the risk of serious health problems.

Obesity often results from taking in more calories than are burned by exercise and normal daily activities.

When it comes to obesity, which is more important: diet vs. exercise? Can weight be lost without exercise?

Was it inactivity—just kids sitting around playing video games? Was it genetic? Was it epigenetic—something turning our fat genes on? Or was it just the food?

Were we eating more fat all of the sudden, more carbs? More processed foods? Or were we just eating more period, because of bigger serving sizes or just snacking more? Inquiring minds wanted to know.

This video shows you the common explanations for the cause of the obesity epidemic put forward by the food industry and policymakers, such as inactivity or a lack of willpower, which are not only wrong but actively harmful fallacies.
