The fast food nation was hit hard when Merlin Spurlock’s documentary, “Super Size Me” stated nothing more than the very obvious. Fast food is bad for you; fast food everyday is really bad. The documentary had several hat tips with awards from the Sundance film fest, writer’s guild of America for screenplay and the International Press award for best documentary. The movie to me was more of a docu-drama, painfully living through poor Merlin’s health deterioration as he wolfed down burger and fry and whatever the Mcd’s menu could fill him with."
Is this true? 'After running out of buns one day, Luther Vandross invented the 'Luther Burger': one all-beef patty between two glazed donuts.'
Origins: Some of us older folks can recall a time when not only could we eat anything we wanted without receiving stern warnings from well-meaning friends and relatives about the health risks associated with our favorite foods, but many of the items we're now advised to eliminate or reduce in our diets (e.g., red meat, eggs, milk, butter, cheese) were even said to be good for us! Alas, now medical concerns over cholesterol and fats and just about any oily, greasy, or fried foods have put the kibosh on a number of treats we once consumed with impunity."
