Morgan Spurlock in his film tried to explorer the corporate influence of the fast food industry and how the Mc Donald and the fast food companies are encouraging the poor nutrition for their own profit (Veltman, 2004).

Mc Donald’s and the Individual Responsibility:
Industries related to the fast food are strongly connected with the issues related to the obesity and health of the public. Mc Donald’s being the leader of the fast food industry is accused many times for the health and the issues related to the obesity. It is the responsibility of the Mc Donald’s to protect the health of the consumers consuming their products. According to the Universal declaration of the human rights it is the responsibilities of the companies to carry out such activities which are good for the public and also help them in making the profits. Hence looking into the health of the consumer it is the responsibility of the company to display the nutritional values of all the food items which are to be consumed by the public.
