Do you know how to use your fat brake? Are your parents to blame for your waistline? What exactly is a 'healthy weight?'

Obesity is an epidemic - the experts tell us. However, society's obsession with the body beautiful continues unabated. We diet, join boot camps, and make New Year resolutions to loose weight, yet over half of Australian's population is overweight.

On Thursday 21st March, Young Garvan will weigh in on these issues with an in-depth look at the science of fat and dieting. Our panel discussion will explore the facts on fat, ask wheather obesity could be genetic, and reveal the latest on 'brown fat' - the almost mythical type of fat that burns, rather than stores, energy in our body. We'll discuss the potential for the scientific approach to weight management, and ask wheather society can win the fight against obesity, without succumbing to negative attitudes about body image.

Please join us for this exciting forum where we'll see how scientific fact stacks up to fashion magazine spin!
