Are you overweight? Are you considerably overweight? Are you taking a risk with your life?
A nutrition expert analyses the meal ordered by a lorry driver in a transport cafe - ' pie and chips, steamed pudding and custard, tea with two sugars ' - very tasty but very rich in starch and sugar. Anyone who eats this all the time will not only get fat but will have two-and-a-half times the normal risk of premature death from heart disease.
Along with other heavyweights Robert Bridges , the stage and television actor, talks about his eating habits and 22 stone figure.

This week's programme in the series on Man and Science Today. If you develop a cancer now what is your chance of survival? If you develop a cancer 10 years from now, how much better will your chances be? What return are we getting for the money spent on cancer research? The Americans spend about 20 times as much on it as we do: is this producing more results? Or do we really need more and better ideas? The ' causes' of cancer include radiation, viruses, chemicals: year by year the list of hazards around us seems to grow. But what do we mean by ' cause '? And what do we mean by ' cure '? Tonight Horizon reports on a situation where 75 years of research have produced a flood of detail, and some of the answers; but where every small advance seems to pose even more questions.
