Just how bad is McDonald's food?
Morgan Spurlock sought to find out in his 2004 documentary Super Size Me. In his film, I was interviewed and spoke about the role McDonald's food is playing in our epidemic of obesity and diabetes.
For 30 days, Spurlock ate only McDonald's food. All of us involved in the film, including Spurlock's doctors, were shocked at the amount that his health deteriorated in such a short time. Before the 30 days started, we each predicted what changes we expected to see in his weight, cholesterol levels, liver enzymes and other biomarkers, but every one of us substantially underestimated how severely his health would be jeopardized. It turned out that in the 30 days, the then 32-year-old man gained 25 pounds, his cholesterol levels rose dangerously as did fatty accumulations in his liver, and he experienced mood swings, depression, heart palpitations and sexual dysfunction.
Some have said Spurlock was an idiot for eating that way, and it's true that he did himself some major damage in those 30 days. But I've always felt the suffering he took upon himself by eating all his meals for that month at McDonald's was admirable, because it served to warn millions of the all too real health dangers of eating too much fast food.
Super Size Me struck a chord for a lot of people, as it became one of the highest-grossing documentaries of all time, and was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature. And more importantly, it changed the eating habits of millions.
Now a group of physicians and other health professionals have produced a short (39 second) ad that may be one of the more controversial in advertising history. The Washington, DC-based group Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM)'s new "Consequences" ad takes dead aim at McDonald's high-fat menu. The provocative ad has become a story unto itself, because it has in only a few days generated nearly one million views on YouTube, and has been covered by newspapers and broadcast media around the world, including the Wall Street Journal, U.K.'s The Guardian, CNN, the New York Times and hundreds of other media outlets.

A recent United Nations Food and Agricultural Report revealed that dairy production accounts for 4 percent of man-made greenhouse gas emissions. That may seem like small potatoes compared to the 14-22 percent contribution from the meat industry, but that four percent adds up to over 1.3 billion tons of greenhouse gases per year!
Cutting dairy out of your diet completely might feel a little extreme for some folks, but even cutting back consumption can make a huge difference in your food’s environmental impact. Luckily, it’s simple and delicious to plan dairy-free meals! Here are some substitution ideas for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
