Quotes

Richard Carmona - U.S. Surgeon General, 2002-2006: Obesity is the terror within. And unless we do something about it, the magnitude of the dilemma will dwarf 9/11 or any other terrorist event you can point out to me.

Is Liposuction Really The Answer To Obesity?
11 December 2017 | by strong-122-478885See all my reviews

When you see something really-really yummy to eat (Mmm! Mmm!) - Are your eyes bigger than your stomach?

According to this 2008 documentary - America is, literally, going to fat. And, by the looks of it - It ain't a pretty picture.

"Killer At Large" tells the somewhat convoluted, the sometimes contradictory, and the often-times condescending story of the mighty shaky politics of American fast-food addiction.

One of the main concerns here has to do with the influential snack-food industry who are deliberately encouraging and manipulating the easily-seduced public (especially the kids) to fill their faces with junk-food.

IMO - This "health-concern" presentation had its good moments, as well as its not-so-good moments, too.

*Note* - It really killed me that some of the "informed" health experts who were interviewed here (and were adamantly complaining about the horrors of America's obesity epidemic) were, in fact, quite over-weight themselves.
