Abstract Antonio Biello wants to walk again. Jean-Pierre Allard wants his son to see how energetic he once was. And Vanessa Hull simply hopes not to be dead before 30. Three people of different worlds, yet inextricably linked to a condition that Dr. Nicholas Christou says is poised to spread more rapidly than smoking-morbid obesity. This clinical program follows the three as they each seek an answer in the form of gastric bypass surgery. Medical professionals explain the physiology of obesity and argue the effectiveness of the procedure, and weight-loss surgery advocates analyze the ever-existing social stigmas against obese people. Contains explicit nudity.
