    Default Fast food health problems.Read before you eat another big mac


    I think we all know what fast food is.
    It is a type of food you can find almost anywhere which contains lots of
    calories, sugar, sodium and unhealthy fats.If you want some good meat
    better buy a chicken and fry it yourself because eating this kind of
    food daily is like poisoning yourself or your children!
    I will present you some facts and after reading them you still want to
    eat this junk,its your body not mine.
    It has been scientifically proven that fast foods cause a lot of
    diseases,etc.They are bad for your body as a whole,including brain.

    Body Mass Index, BMI, is an indicator of body fat that is measured
    according to your weight and height. High BMI causes type 2 diabetes,
    high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, gallstones and cancer.

    Sodium is a risk factor for high blood pressure and stroke, the third
    leading cause of death in the United States.

    In the recent years, many experiments have been done with rats to
    illustrate the “addiction” to high fat or high sugar foods.
    The results suggest that regular consumption of high fat food can alter
    the brain biochemistry so that we crave this food.

    New research shows that heavy use of fast food causes the degeneration
    of genital organs over time.Most harmfull effects were found out in
    males,showing a shrinkin of an average 1cm per year.Some women reported
    bleeding but any link with this kind of food was not found yet.

    Consumers of fast food, compared to those who eat little or none, are
    51% more likely to develop depression.Furthermore, a dose-response
    relationship was observed. In other words this means that the more fast
    food you consume, the greater the risk of depression.

    Fast food is inexpensive relative to most other food choices. Fast foods
    contain lots of calories, sugar, sodium and unhealthy fats -- substances
    that increase your risk of obesity, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure
    and heart disease.

    Was that true, there should be millions of males with 0 cm penises. Anyone
    can see them?

    Hear that, Brian? Bottom line though is...don't feed this stuff to your
    pet rats.

    Well, I love the stuff but I rarely eat it...maybe 2-3 times a year only.
    I'm in the other 49% group though. Whenever I eat it, I've very happy and
    not depressed at all.

    Thankyou for this info, Mr.Foodbanterhead :-D

    That's bull****, Mr.OtherFoodbanter fellow

    I can cook a very healthy meal much cheaper than buying fast food.
    I can also cook a very unhealthy fast food meal cheaper than buying it.

    That mentality annoys me. Don't discount something if you've never tried
    it. Unhealthy? Yeah...but you just might like one occasionally. Occasional
    'bad food' isn't going to hurt you. And you are so picky about food,
    anything you find you like would be a bonus. You especially should be
    willing to try anything once.

    I had that rule with my daughter as she was growing up. I would make dinner
    and if it contained something new and different (that she never had before),
    I insisted that she try just one bite. One bite then if she still didn't
    like it, i didn't force it on her.

    With my "one bite" rule, she actually ended up liking maybe half the
    things...things that she wouldn't have tried otherwise.

    Not necessarily. The dollar menu is quite reasonable. You would have to buy
    a small package of hamburger and a pack of buns and some cheap cheese plus
    have ketchup, mustard, pickle, and onion on hand to make a McDouble, for
    example. I can buy two of them, throw away the bun from one of them, and
    have a quadruple cheesburger with ketchup, mustard, onion, and pickle for
    two dollars. And the carbs are low, they are just one bun. Or a Sausage
    McMuffin for a buck. One muffin, slice of sausage, slice of cheese. Yeah,
    you can do it just as cheaply at home but if you buy decent sausage (McD's
    isn't bad) and not that Farmland greasepit crapola you really can't do it
    for much less. I double those up on occasion as well for breakfast.

    Neither of those dollar items fills me up but I will on rare occasion make
    myself a McQuad per above, and less rarely when in a hurry in the AM I will
    get make a McDoublesausagemcmuffin for two bucks. It's no more carbs and
    calories than most any breakfast or dinner I might make at home. There is no
    way on earth you can tell me this is not economical and less expensive than
    most any alternative I could make myself.

    >

    Not really, not if you do the above, and those two items are not typical
    high carb high calorie fast food offerings. In fact if you talk to
    nutritionists they will tell you that the McDouble and the Sausage McMuffin
    are quite reasonable in carbs and calories.

    Obviously I wouldn't recommend eating either of the above options frequently
    but it works in a pinch.

    It's true that the dollar menu is cheap as is the kid's menu which is why
    people with kids often get those meals. At least that's what I've read.
    Because not only do they get a cheap meal but a toy.

    You can make beans and rice, throw in some additional vegetables and fruit
    or even make a pot of soup for cheap. But... The initial outlay could be a
    bit much what with buying all those vegetables and seasonings. Sadly, many
    people can only live day to day. Those are often the ones that you see
    buying the Ramen or noodle bowls.

    I remember getting my first apartment. Buying all of those seasonings cost
    more than buying the actual food!

    No. I am sure I would not like one. I am not really big on hamburgers to
    begin with and when I do eat them, they are plain save for lettuce, tomato
    and onion. I have seen people eating Big Macs. They have gloppy sauce on
    them. For that reason I would not eat one. Healthy or unhealthy has
    nothing to do with it. They just don't look appealing to me.

    Now a taco? You bet. I would eat that.

    But why should I be willing to try something that I *know* is not good for
    me? That is something I don't understand.

    My daughter must try things too, *if* they are heathy foods. No way would I
    ever tell her that she had to eat a dessert or some sort of junk food.
    Never! The schools here teach children from an early age what food is
    healthy and what food is not. She even bought herself a book called, "Eat
    This! Not That!" It compares convenience and fast food and tells you which
    is the better option. We don't necessarily agree that the better option is
    actually a good choice. But... She is trying very hard to learn which
    foods she should eat.
    >

    My daughter has always been good to try things. Always. She doesn't always
    like them though.

    Now I'm going to have to call the burgers I make by buying three
    McDoubles, one with buns, two without, all with no ketchup, and making
    a six patty monstrosity, the McSex. I also get extra pickle on all
    three, so it is a very pickley affair. $3.27 w/ tax, give or take a
    few pennies. Instead of wasting buns, ask for no buns on one of them,
    and they'll give it to you that way. Most of them will give you a
    couple of pieces of lettuce with it instead of the bun.
