Fed Up is “a documentary about the nation’s obesity epidemic. …, taking square aim at corporations and politicians who have made it easy for the citizenry to stuff its collective face with junk food and, even more damaging, sugar. “(SFGate). “There are 100,000 food items on the nation’s store shelves …. and 80 percent have added sugar. Sugar is addictive. All the ellipticals in the world aren’t going to help if you’re supping at a banquet table catered by McDonald’s, General Mills, Tyson, Nestlé, Kraft, PepsiCo and Coca-Cola.” (Newsday).  Sugar, which a pediatric endocrinologist in the movie describes as “more addictive than cocaine”, may not be the sole cause of burgeoning obesity in America, but it is a major player.
