Faculty of Business – Ethics in Business Film Series continues with Super Size Me

Sheridan’s Faculty of Business film series Ethics in Business continues Tuesday November 29 at 7:00 pm in Room A145 at the Hazel McCallion Campus in Mississauga with Super Size Me, the story of Morgan Spurlock and his journey of epic proportions through a McDonalds only diet.

From the IMDB website:

Several legal suits have been brought against McDonald’s Restaurants that they are knowingly selling food that is unhealthy. Some of the court decisions have stated that the plaintiffs would have a claim if they could prove that eating the food every day for every meal is dangerous. As such, documentarian Morgan Spurlock conducts an unscientific experiment using himself as the guinea pig: eat only McDonald’s for thirty days, three meals a day. If he is asked by the clerk if he would like the meal super sized, he has to say yes. And by the end of the thirty days, he will have had to have eaten every single menu item at least once. Before starting the experiment, he is tested by three doctors – a general practitioner, a cardiologist and a gastroenterologist – who pronounce his general health to be outstanding. They will also monitor him over the thirty days to ensure that he is not placing his health into irreparable damage.

Sheridan’s film series continues next Tuesday at 7:00 pm with Inside Job.
