WASHINGTON, May 20 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Xtreme Eating Awards for 2010 will be announced at a press conference in Washington on Tuesday, May 25.  Given by the nonprofit Center for Science in the Public Interest and published in the June issue of its Nutrition Action Healthletter, the Xtreme Eating Awards highlight the shocking nutritional quality of meals at America's chain restaurants.

Why:
