McD's and health 

I am impressed/disgusted by a New York filmmaker's recent project: for one month he ate nothing but McDonald's, 3 meals a day. His documentary is called: Super Size Me: A Film of Epic Portions. Within days, he was experiencing physical and psychological ailments. I would have called it quits, based on what he was going thru, but apparently he kept at it for the entire month.

This film is being shown at the Sundance Film Festival, and I can only hope that it will be shown in theaters for all to see. It'll be a good way to show people how bad fast food can affect you (for those who haven't figured it out yet).

The only question is, what effort will the McD Corp. go thru to keep this film from getting widespread play? I would guess they would do all they could as the few details gleaned from this article are enough to make a good case for not eating fast food.

Check out the article. Very interesting stuff.
