Read Dr. David Kessler’s The End of Overeating: Taking Control of the Insatiable North American Appetite (McClelland & Stewart).

We have been saying much the same for years. Obesity is caused by junk food addiction. Junk food is deliberately concocted to appeal to the taste of salt and sugar and the mouth feel of fat.

Of course, junk food has been available for at least a century. Why has obesity become a problem only in the last 20 years? For our explanation see our page on obesity.
