Thursday, November 29, 2012 – Is it Food Addiction?: 
Part two of our series on addiction examines the high rates of obesity in Indian country. Indian Health Services reports that 80% of American Indian and Alaska Native adults between the ages 20 to74 are either obese or overweight. Why is this so? Is the kind of food we are eating like high fat foods, high carbohydrates and processed foods causing these high rates? Or, is it an addiction to food? The label of food addiction is sometimes controversial so is that why people shy away from using it? With the mental health community somewhat divided on the causes or even the designation, the obesity rates cannot be ignored. Loss of traditional eating systems are often mentioned as a reason for the high rates but, where does food addiction fit into this picture? Is it an over looked problem in our tribes? Guests include Mary Annette Pember (Red Cliff Ojibwe) independent journalist whose work focuses on Native American issues and culture.
