Tune into the Dr. Oz show on Tuesday, May 24 for a controversial discussion about child obesity. Dr. Oz asks, is it child abuse to have a fat child? Parents, kids and exerts weight in on this question that hits close to home for many. How much is genetic? How much is learned? And what role does the food industry play?
