    Detailed Information:
    Washington—Every U.S. Senator and Representative will receive a gift tomorrow courtesy of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) and filmmaker Morgan Spurlock: newly issued DVDs of Spurlock’s award-winning documentary, Super Size Me.

    Billed as a film of epic portions, Super Size Me chronicles Spurlock’s month-long consumption of nothing but McDonald’s food and the consequences: Spurlock’s weight jumped from 185 to 210; his body fat went from a healthy 11% to 18%; and his cholesterol soared from 165 to an artery-clogging 230.

    The DVDs are a humorous way of making a serious point to lawmakers, says PCRM President Neal Barnard, M.D.: “America is fat. Health care costs have shot into the trillions of dollars in this country. Imagine what they’ll be in 10, 20, 30 years when the fallout from a generation raised on fatty foods hits the national health care system.
