No More Disney Toys in Your Obesity Enducing Happy Meal

Heard the news: Disney and McDonalds are ending their business relationship.

A recent BBC article claims that the the reason McDonald's & Disney are ending their 10 year relationship is because of economic reasons not because of obesity issues. The last paragraph of the article says:

"Obesity is now a growing political issue in the US, home to the highest number of obese people in the world. "

What does this sentence have to do with McDonald's or Disney?

I just watched the documentary "Super Size Me". Truly scary stuff. And what's even scarier, after watching it, I wanted a Quarter Pounder. I did find it remarkable that after the premier of that film, McDonalds stopped offering super-sized meals. And now this. Power to the people!!
