Have you ever thought about the fast food industry or what ingredients are actually in Fast Food? If you haven't, perhaps you should. Why? Because while everyone frets about the nutritional implications of excessive dining at America's fast-food emporia, few grasp the significance of how fast-food restaurants have fundamentally changed the entire food supply chain.

 

 

 

Super Size Me

Release Year: 2004

Duration: 103 min

Every once in a while, a documentary comes out that is as entertaining as it is educational. Some people have even called the movie shocking.

In SUPER SIZE ME, filmmaker Morgan Spurlock unravels the American obesity epidemic by interviewing experts nationwide and by subjecting himself to a “McDonald’s only” diet for thirty days straight. His Sundance award-winning feature is as entertaining as it is horrifying as it dives into corporate responsibility, nutritional education, school lunch programs and how we as a nation are eating ourselves to death.

Fast food has infiltrated every nook and cranny of American society. It is so ubiquitous that most people view it as American and harmless as apple pie. But nothing could be further from the truth.

Factory farming? The little-known world of chemically engineered flavorings? If those concepts are foreign to you, then let this be your wake up call. Take a little time to educate yourself about where your food comes from and how it is processed along the way. If you do, you will forever change the way you eat. And in the process, you will probably greatly improve your health.
