Super Size Me Ponderables

Top Four Facts That I Thought About At Least Twice After Watching Super Size Me:

4. McDonald’s alone produces enough trash per day to fill up the Empire State Building from the ground floor to the roof. That’s just one chain, in one day.

3. If you ate a plain McDonald’s hamburger patty ten minutes ago, you’d have particles of meat from over 1000 separate cows from five different nations in your stomach right now.

2. It is projected that by this year, obesity will have surpass smoking as the #1 preventable cause of death in the U.S. (I’m not sure if that’s been confirmed as of late.)

1. One out of every three children born in 2000 will develop diabetes as a result of obesity. In the Latino and Black communities, it’s one out of every two. Guess who gets to pay for their health care later.
