Published by globally acclaimed "Globesity", the story assumes that the introduction of West German dietary habits is increasing the incidence of global addiction and disease, and that disorderly metabolic processes are the abridged result of globalisation and excesses. Harris Solomon reconstructs these stories in Metabolic Living by investigating how Mumbai, India, is experiencing the relationship of diet, weight, body weight and urbanity.
Salomon claims that being obese and diabetic is a matter of absorbing energy between the human organism and the milieu. Starting from ethno field research in Mumbai's home cooking, metabolism disorders, grocery stores, marketplaces and welfare institutions, he describes the intake of snacks and mangos to levels of levels of insulin, insomnia, stresses and contaminants.
Given that these compounds move back and forth between cities and cities and blur both areas, the beginning and handling of diseases of the metabolites raises issues of who has the ability to determine what enters the human organism and when nutrition means living. Solomon conjures up the state of the human metabolized fabric of today's metropolitan living and an important policy analysis, sheds light on the living constraints of obesity and diabetics, and reorientates our understandings of chronical diseases in India and beyond.
