I actually got to watch this "train wreck" of "misinformation propaganda" from beginning to end one day between Christmas and New Years. It's even worse than "Reefer Madness"!

This is a guy who had been on a vegan diet and puked (with film footage of the parking lot outside the driver's door thanks to his videographer) from eating a single Big Mac and a regular order of fries which was clearly more food than he was accustomed to eating AND A SIGNIFICANTLY DIFFERENT DIET. And, as he pointed out - was used to walking 4-5 miles a day ... and cut down to 5,000 steps per day.

Do you want to guess how many lawsuits would be filed against a drug company, and the FDA, for approving a drug based on the results of 1 individual test?

What about the guy that ate 3-9 Big Mac's per day and was skinnier than Morgan?

And the title, "Super Size Me" ... LOL, what a joke. According to the film - he ONLY bought a "super sized" meal if he was asked if he wanted to "super size" it ... a total of only 9 times in a month.

I'm all for promoting good nutrition ... crap like this only makes it harder to convince people of the truth. Again, I will say that this is the culinary equivalent of "Reefer Madness" ...

When people quit trying to propogate an agenda and just promote the truth - then perhaps we can accomplish something positive? But, as long as you're just feeding them BS ... they will not listen to anything you say.

LOL - I only eat at McD's about 3-4 times a year ... it's the bad science I object to.
