Marcia Franklin talks with former FDA Commissioner David Kessler about his latest book, The End of Overeating, which examines why many Americans find it so difficult to resist certain foods. Dr. Kessler believes a potent combination of sugar, fat and salt in some foods literally rewires some people's brains to crave them. The two also discuss various public policy initiatives to deal with obesity.
