Ch4 Unreported World 2017 Obesity in Paradise

Sophie Morgan and director Patrick Wells visit the Samoan islands in the middle of the Pacific Ocean to investigate an epidemic of obesity. American Samoa has the highest rates of obesity in the world: up to 93% of people are overweight or obese and one in three have diabetes. Samoa is not far behind. The governments of Samoa and American Samoa are trying to tackle the crisis but both remote Islands are still being flooded with unhealthy processed food from abroad, as well as fatty offcuts of meat that are seen as unfit for human consumption in many other countries.
