This week: weight obsession, peanut allergies and stress management
How do we break our cultural obsession with weight? Author Harriet Brown says we must:
- Stop fat talking about ourselves,
- realize that being thin does not mean one is healthy, just as being fat does not mean one is unhealthy, and
- take our emphasis off of people's appearances.
Brown, a Syracuse University professor, speaks about what led her to write the book, "Body of Truth -- How Science, History and Culture Drive our Obsession with Weight and What We Can Do About It."
Also this week: Dr. Donna Bacchi talks about the importance of stress management and Dr. Deborah Goldman addresses new findings about peanut allergies.
