Killer at Large Overview:
Obesity is fast becoming the single greatest killer of Americans, causing some experts to claim that we are on the cusp of an evolutionary disaster.
Former Surgeon General Richard Carmona says, “Obesity is a terror within; it’s destroying our society from within and unless we do something about it, the magnitude of the dilemma will dwarf 9/11 or any other terrorist event that you can point out.”
Obesity rates in the United States are climbing at an unprecedented rate across all ages and ethnic groups – and leading to the first generation of children whose life expectancy is shorter than that of their parents.
KILLER AT LARGE uncovers this epidemic, examining the causes and suggesting way to reverse this deadly trend.
“Takes a broad look at many causes of [being] overweight including our toxic food environment, the problems with school lunches and vending machines and the impact of food lobbyists have on determining government policies.”

“KILLER AT LARGE explores America’s obesity epidemic in a way that moves beyond the alarming statistics – two-thirds of the country is overweight or obese; 9 million children rank among that number – to offer a complex, comprehensive picture.”
