Ep. 7 – How the Dutch weigh-in against Corona

In this episode we look at overweight and obesity in the Netherlands with Dr. Karen Freijer. Just how skinny are the Dutch? What are the health ramifications of overweight and obesity? And why did this all become even more important with the coronavirus pandemic? Karen takes us through it all – including why we need to get rid of stigma around overweight and obesity. And, of course, we get input from the Dutchomter Merijn Soeters.
