Killer at Large: Why Obesity is America's Greatest Threat presents the shocking and thought-provoking truths behind the increasing number of obesity-related deaths in the United States. The film was directed by Steven Greenstreet and released in 2008. The film includes commentary from several politicians and celebrities including Bill Clinton, Ralph Nader, Tom Harkin, Arnold Schwartzenegger, and Chevy Chase, to name a few. The documentary explains that obesity is the second most common cause of death in the United States, costing roughly 110,000 American lives every year. Despite this alarming fact, the government has done close to nothing in the way of preventing a further increase in obesity rates. As it turns out, the United States government spends nearly half of its budget on fighting terrorism, when obesity kills ten times as many people. The film tackles the issue from several angles - economically, culturally, scientifically, and politically. If you enjoyed Supersize Me, Killer at Large is a definite must-see.
