* TechnologyMarchesOn: At one point, the documentary says that more than half the homes in the US don't have internet access. That might have been the case when the documentary was released, but its definetely not the case in the 2010s.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen:
** The movie focuses on the health problems associated with the massive caloric intake associated with the amount of fat, sugar and carbohydrates he was eating, rather than what food scientists and dieticians primarily criticize fast (and junk) food for: being nutritionally bankrupt and full of "empty" calories.
** There was a scene in the extras on the DVD that wasn't in the movie, wherein four different foods from [=McDonald=]'s and some chips bought from another location were placed in jars and left to decompose. All of them showed mold and the like... except the [=McDonald=]'s fries. No mold at all. The experiment only ended because the food got thrown away by accident. The fries don't decompose, not because or preservatives or anything scary, but because they are thin and have almost no water content. Bacteria, mold, and mildew can't grow without water. It's why a slice of bread in a plastic bag will grow mold but one left sitting on the counter will merely dry out and get stale.

* MoneyDearBoy: His wife would go on to release a health book called "The Great American Detox Diet" based on the detox diet techniques she used to bring her husband back to health. The book would have been largely overlooked were it not for the association with the film (and the quality of her "advice" is scientifically questionable to boot!).
