Review: "How to Get Fat Without Really Trying", originally a Primetime investigation, is hosted by Peter Jennings. It is a critical look at the complex relationship between the US Department of Agriculture, lobbyists, advertisers, and marketers of food. The most abundant and least expensive food is often not the healthiest choice. Why is this? Parts of this report would serve as a great base for conversations with older students about marketing and the media as well as nutrition. This is one of six varied programs in a two-DVD set, called The Peter Jennings Collection.
Other Information: The Peter Jennings Collection ($24.98) is available from major distributors such as www.amazon.com.
