Fat land : how Americans became the fattest people in the world by Greg Critser( Book )

22 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and Japanese and held by 2,594 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fat land highlights the groundbreaking research that implicates cheap fats and sugars as the alarming new metabolic factor making our calories stick and shows how and why children are too often the chief metabolic victims of such foods. No one else writing on fat America takes as hard a line as Critser on the institutionalized lies we've been telling ourselves about how much we can eat and how little we can exercise. His expose of the Los Angeles schools' opening of the nutritional floodgates in the lunchroom and his examination of the political and cultural forces that have set the bar on American fitness low and then lower, are both discerning reporting and impassioned wake-up calls. Disarmingly funny, Fat land leaves no diet book - including Dr. Atkins's - unturned. Fashions, both leisure and street, and American-style religion are subject to Critser's gimlet eye as well. Memorably, Fat land takes on baby-boomer parenting shibboleths - that young children won't eat past the point of being full and that the dinner table isn't the place to talk about food rules - and gives advice many families will use to lose. Critser's futuristic portrait of a Fat America just around the corner and his all too contemporary foray into the diabetes ward of a major children's hospital make Fat land a chilling but brilliantly rendered portrait of the cost in human lives - many of them very young lives - of America's obesity epidemic
Generation Rx : how prescription drugs are altering American lives, minds, and bodies by Greg Critser( Book )

12 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 1,787 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book moves the conversation about prescription drugs to where it hits home: our own bodies. How, Critser asks, has "big pharma" created a nation of pharmaceutical tribes, each with its own unique beliefs, taboos, and brand loyalties? How have powerful chemical compounds for chronic diseases, once controlled by physicians, become substances we feel entitled to, whether we need them or not? How did we come to hate drug companies but love their pills? Read about: the business story behind pharma's rise to power; the dramatic effects our drug culture is having on our major organs, from the liver to the heart to the brain; why old bodies and young bodies are the biggest, and riskiest, arenas for the prescription pill party; and how the largely uncharted terrain of polypharmacy (various drugs taken together) has unleashed unanticipated, often deadly, consequences on unwitting patients.--From publisher description
