Mickey-D's Wants to Save Your Big, Fat Ass ***

Talk about disingenuousness…

CHICAGO (Reuters) – McDonald’s Corp., the world’s largest fast-food company, on Thursday launched an anti-obesity education campaign that it said would promote the importance of exercise and a balanced lifestyle.

The company, whose Big Macs and super-size french fries have drawn criticism for promoting obesity, said it is “committed to playing a responsible and active role” in solving the U.S. obesity problem. Some two-thirds of Americans are overweight.

I doubt that the cornerstone of the campaign will be a “don’t eat at McDonald’s” theme. See the recent documentary Super Size Me for a humorous look at McDonald’s commitment to anti-obesity.
