Are your friends making you fat? Or keeping you slender? According to a recent study, obesity is socially contagious or spreads from person to person in a social network. James Fowler, PhD, coauthor of the study, and Michael Gottschalk, MD, join our host, David Granet, MD, for a lively discussion on social networks and how they influence weight from childhood through adulthood.
