The Weight of the Nation
HBO's 4-part Weight of the Nation documentary begins airing tonight on TV and online (see link below). The trailer below gives you a taste of what's on America's menu if we don't act in an urgent and strategic way. If the situation sounds dramatic, it's because it is: if we stay on the current pace, 42 percent of Americans will be obese by the year 2030 (right now the obesity rate is about 33% with another 33% weighing in as overweight). There's no silver bullet solution, but gardening (the healthy food and healthy recreation it offers) will be a part of the solution.
KGI is a nonprofit community of over 30,000 people who are growing some of our own food and helping others to do the same.
