Obesity in America has become a killer crisis. And your zip code, not just your genetic code, may contribute to the epidemic. Poorer neighborhoods have fatter and sicker people. A new HBO documentary, for example, points out that life expectancy in Cleveland's Hough neighborhood is 64. Less than ten miles away in Lyndhurst, it's almost 90. We'll talk about the film, the factors contributing to obesity and the urgent call to combat the fat, Monday at 9 on the Sound of Ideas.
