Three years in the making, ``The Weight of the Nation'' addresses both the facts and myths of obesity, showing how it affects the health of individuals and strains the health care system. The four documentaries include case studies and interviews with experts from the nation's leading research institutions and with individuals and families struggling with obesity.
