Following on from my comments regarding our diet and its consequences in another thread.....remember this film from a few years back? If you haven't seen it yet, well its a must-watch. & an eye opener.

While examining the influence of the fast food industry, Morgan Spurlock personally explores the consequences on his health of a diet of solely McDonald's food for one month.

Yes indeed cantata. :(

Basically it almost kills him.

I first watched that film years ago, and then again last night, and its quite frankly shocking. Why didn't it's message have the same impact on me first time round as it did this time?

On the surface at least mcdonalds changed their menu because of that film. Of course they always use the argument that you are not meant to only eat their food. People still love that shit.
