Youth Radio: What teens are eating outside the home

Jan 15, 2014

From our partners at Youth Radio.

Your Legal Rights considers the dangers of excess sugar causing obesity in the American diet.

Guest:  Dr. Robert Lustig, a pediatric endocrinologist and Director of the UCSF Weight Assessment for Teen and Child Health Program.

On today's Your Call, we’ll have a conversation with Dr. John McDougall about his new book, "The Starch Solution." According to Center for Disease Control, more than one-third of U.S. adults and approximately 12.5 million of children and adolescents are obese.  We've heard about proper nutrition, so why don't we practice it? Dr. McDougal says eat your carbs--starch is the solution to the obesity crisis plaguing this nation. Can starch help heal the health crisis?

On today's Your Call, we'll speak with Tracie McMillan, author of The American Way of Eating: Undercover at Walmart, Applebee's, Farm Fields, and the Dinner Table.  For nearly a year, she worked, ate, and lived alongside the working poor to examine how Americans eat when price matters.  How do you get “good” food on the table?  Join us at 10 or email feedback@yourcallradio.org . Why do we eat the way we do? And how can we change it? It’s Your Call, with Holly Kernan, and You.
