30 Food Films – Day 1: “Killer at Large”

OK, this is what I’ve been doing since yesterday when the term ended and what I’ve been sneaking peeks at before the term ended and I was really supposed to study stuff.

So – today I watched (through Netflix streaming, also available on DVD) the following:

Killer at Large: Why Obesity is America’s Greatest Threat (2008) NR

And here’s the blurb:  Obesity causes 110,000 American deaths each year and plays a role in one-third of all cancer deaths. Yet, despite ballooning concerns, little is being done on the public policy level, as this probing documentary explains. Exploring the issue from individual, political, scientific and cultural perspectives, the film features appearances by Bill Clinton, Ralph Nader, Arnold Schwarzenegger, former Surgeon General Richard Carmona and others.

I was watching it with great interest; I particularly liked the all-organic lunches by Chef Christian, I believe it was in Somerville, MA, with the adjacent organic garden which the kids worked.  I remember doing that in my school.  Gardening is like riding a bike, or playing the piano: you never really forget how to.   I’m going to start taking care of my own.  Remember Candide?

‘Cela est bien dit,’ répondit Candide, ‘mais il faut cultiver notre jardin.’
