Den (ir)rationella människan

Abstract
The world today stands before a new global epidemic. Obesity and overweight. This epidemic is rapidly growing in almost all parts of the world and the answer how to stop this epidemic is not comprehensible. The discourse leads up to the idea of rational behavior. It has been argued over time that individuals are provided with reason and ability of rational behavior that leads us into making high-quality choices. This is an assumption I will attempt to prove non-compatible with the health issues we stand before today.
My ambition is to analyze the World Health Organization’s policy documents, and there after study how their outlook on individuals is expressed in the discourse and how this affects the discourse as hole.
