The Obesity Myth

2017 · M · Lifestyle

The Obesity Myth follows the lives of morbidly obese patients at Austin Health – a public hospital which, backed by new research, treats obesity as a chronic disease caused by genetics. Challenging our misconceptions about obesity as a lifestyle choice, the series follows various patients as they battle their biology to reclaim their lives.
