Watch Part Three of 'The Men Who Made Us Fat' Here

In this final episode, obesity is studied: how has it come to pass that more people are overfed than undernourished?

The miniseries follows journalist Jacques Peretti as he explores how eating habits have changed over the last 40 years. Unsurprisingly, it has a lot do with the rise of fast food, and food companies' increasing reliance on high fructose corn syrup.
