Supersized!

Today sees the release of a new graphic novel from Dark Horse called Supersized Strange Tales from a Fast-Food Culture, which is an extension of Morgan Spurlock's documentary Super Size Me, in which he ate nothing but fast food for a whole month.
Besides revisiting what eating nothing but fast food for a month does to your body, the Supersized graphic novel has many horror stories of what goes on behind the scenes at fast food restaurants and asks:

"We've all become so used to the convenience of fast food that we've lost connection to where our meats come from. How much is that convenience worth though? Is the time and energy you save by idling in the drive-thru worth your health and well-being?"

Yes, Supersize, the graphic novel and documentary tell us things we'd rather just remain ignorant about, but hopefully the more these messages get out there, the more people will make changes in their lives to dial back what these industries are doing to the health of people in the U.S. and around the world.
