Most of us know that junk food is bad for our health. So why do we still fall victim to eating it? In this week’s episode of Wellness Unwrapped, Dr Austin Perlmutter blows the lid off the way insidious marketing and other factors in our modern environment push us to make decisions that eat away at our physical, emotional and mental health. It's essential for us to be wise to this if we’re to have any chance of swimming against the tide of chronic ill health.

Dr Austin Perlmutter is a board-certified internal medicine physician and New York Times bestselling author. His focus is on helping others to improve their decision-making and their quality of life. He is the co-author of Brain Wash and writes for Psychology Today on his blog, The Modern Brain.
