How has American society been represented in the documentary?

Currently our year eleven class is learning about documentary's and blogs, to further this knowledge we watched Super Size Me a documentary about how a man named Morgan Spurlock who ate McDonalds for thirty executive days. Morgan showed viewers the story about how his body changed whist on his high fat diet.  The documentary that's was released in 2004 showed viewers some pretty horrible facts about the growing obesity rate in the United Stated of America. Obesity in America s the second leading cause of death, causing 400 000 people a year to loose their lives over the preventable disease. The documentary Super Size Me gave us a brief look at the American society, the show especially focused on the food aspect of the society telling us that one in four people will visit a fast food place daily. American society was conveyed as being obese, the show represented Americans to be like this because the whole thing was about fatty foods and diets and only focused on the unhealthy people in the society rather than the healthy fit people. Morgan also touched on the subject that Americans were getting ' fat and stupid' which once again is only focusing on a small minority of people and not the majority of the American society. By viewing the program I have learnt some valuable lessons about eating fast food and that it can cause bad damage to your body.
