Why Are We So Fat? Maybe Not Why You Think.

A new documentary, "Fed Up," argues America's obesity epidemic can't be blamed on a lack of willpower or exercise.

Here's a sobering statistic: by 2050, one in three Americans is expected to contract diabetes, largely due to obesity. While sedentary lifestyles and poor diet choices are the obvious culprits, the makers of "Fed Up" -- a documentary released in theaters this month that won rave reviews at the Sundance Film Festival -- argue that the food industry itself is due a hefty helping of blame. In the clip above, everyone from health officials to former President Bill Clinton speak out on a phenomenon that is helping create the first generation of Americans who will have shorter lifespans than their parents.
