This week's Special Investigations Unit focuses on Americans' diets with Dr. Sanjay Gupta. An excerpt from the CNN Press Release:
Americans are among the fattest people in the world, and since the 1980s, the nation has experienced an unprecedented spike in obesity rates. CNN chief medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta reports on the surprising science behind how diet affects the body and brain and how unhealthy food remains central to the American diet despite growing consumer awareness about health.
CNN: Special Investigations Unit – Fed Up: America’s Killer Diet will premiere on Saturday, Sept. 22, and Sunday, Sept. 23, at 8 p.m., 11 p.m. and 2 a.m. (ET).
Fed Up is the first CNN documentary to be broadcast in high-definition television.
The documentary features Adrian McHargh, who embarked on a steady diet of fast food following his family’s relocation to Kennesaw, Ga., from Kingston, Jamaica, just over a year ago. The 12 year-old gained more than 30 pounds and developed high cholesterol, high blood pressure and borderline Type 2 diabetes. After enrolling in an innovative three-month program with Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta that included weekly visits with a nutritionist and a personal trainer, Adrian changed his eating habits and lost 15 pounds.
