It's an obvious point of course, and using fat Americans to make it is easier than shooting hugely overweight fish in a small barrel, but Prentice is desperate to emphasise that obesity is not just a problem for the US and other developed countries.
Around the world, researchers were racing to unravel the chemical problems experts believed were responsible for obese people being unable to control their weight.
The problem is that for an increasing number of people this physiological control doesn't work, because the other systems that produce and deliver food, and save us from expending energy, work too well.

 FAT CONTROLLER
The ribbon controller is a revelation, with a crisp feel that puts it into a different league to the old ribbons found on Multimoogs (it also offers both sideways and pressure sensitivity).
These control 'swing' by shifting the timing of some beats, or changing the velocity ratio between the highest and lowest velocities (similar to using an audio expander or compressor), or altering the gate time.
