He is now comparing his fight against Big Tobacco to his fight against Big Food. In his book, The End of Overeating, Kessler states that the presence of salt, sugar and fat in our diets initiates a cycle that causes us to overeat against our better judgment. In part 1 of this series, WatchMojo.com speaks with Dr. Kessler about the North American diet – its evolution and its voracity.
