Fat Head

I just watched this full-length flick on Hulu (with a few commercials) and it was great. It's a humorous if sometimes corny synopsis of what has gone wrong with American dietary policy over the last ~50 years.

It has some good information on the history of American diet recommendations and diet science, with the nod going to Drs. Eades, the Weston A. Price Foundation, Gary Taubes etc., and the jabs going to the likes of the Center for Science in the Public Interest, who sue places like McDonalds and push for onerous laws that override individual choice and treat Americans like mindless cattle (if you want, I'll tell you what I really think).

Is it just me, or was Al Sears doing a Marlon Brando impression?

HT: Richard Nikoley at Free the Animal.
