BlueReads Presents: Dr Deborah Cohen & her book "A Big Fat Crisis"
   
Dr. Deborah A. Cohen discusses and signs her new book: "A BIG FAT CRISIS-- the Hidden Forces Behind the Obesity Epidemic-- and how we can end it."

Starting your 2014 with a New Year's diet? You'll want to hear Deborah Cohen discuss her new book that is packed with the latest research -- some of which contradicts conventional wisdom. Here is a description:

Obesity is the public health crisis of the 21st century, and according to Deborah Cohen, this is largely due to two factors: human nature and our food environment. We're naturally hard-wired to eat, and living in what is effectively a food swamp, where food is cheap, plentiful, and heavily -- even insidiously -- marketed has pushed us beyond the limits of self-control. Simple dieting advice no longer works. What are needed are more sweeping changes that will create a more balanced food environment and transcend individual habits. 

Deborah Cohen is a senior natural scientist at the RAND Corporation. She received her BA at Yale University, MPH in epidemiology from the UCLA School of Public Health, and her MD from the School of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania. Cohen has served on several advisory panels for the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and was a Fulbright Senior Scholar in Brazil.
