INSATIABLE: A NATION'S UNAPPEASABLE HUNGER

SKU: OLT450

The expected date of publication is March 1, 2022.  INSATIABLE describes the United States' deep hunger for food, meaning, and purpose. Using official NIH data, peer-reviewed scientific, historical, and theological literature, in addition to numerous interviews, INSATIABLE describes the prevalence of obesity and its far-reaching grip on the health of the nation. America, strapped with a total yearly healthcare expenditure exceeding $3.6 trillion, is succumbing to financial insolvency. INSATIABLE advances that weight-loss diets are only 1-3% effective yet remain the primary therapeutic modality recommended by doctors and dietitians. The field of Medicine's treatment of obesity is myopic; it does not recognize that the cause of obesity is not organic but rather arises from socio-demographic and spiritual problems. The evidence suggests that the obesity epidemic is a symptom of a much deeper social malaise, sweeping our nation and spawning epidemics, such as depression, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, sexually transmitted infections (STIs), drug and child abuse, and suicides. The book examines more closely this social malaise and its impact on the social and medical upheavals of our times, using scientific, sociological, historical, philosophical, and theological lenses, and proposes a radically new way of living.
