MacDonald's Food is Anything But

When you eat a MacDonald's hamburger, you are not eating food.

What's this?

MacDonald's, over the course of its long and sordid history, has contributed mightily to the exponential rise in American obesity, diabetes, cancer, and many other afflictions. Its Big Macs, Quarter Pounders, Hamburgers, Fish Filets and almost all of its other myriad offerings, including french fries, are overwhelmingly loaded with all sorts of chemicals, all of which are bad if not deadly to your health and well being.

It certainly isn't food

When Sally Davies went to MacDonald's and purchased a Happy Meal, she took it home, not to eat it - God forbid! - but to place it on a table to see how long it would last before it started to decompose. She waited, and waited, and waited, and nothing happened. no decay whatsoever. Five months later, the paper the burger was wrapped in revealed advanced signs of decomposition, but the burger and fries looked like they had when they first came off the grill.

John Foley has been saving MacDonald's hamburgers, cheeseburgers and Big Macs for over nineteen years, with none of the items showing the least signs of decay. We can only conclude that MacDonald's manufactures its foods to last forever.

The chemical content

So, it has now been irrefutably proven that MacDonald's burgers are virually all chemicals and contain almost no real food. MacDonald's claims it has ceased using "select lean beef trimmings" (pink slime), but the company refuses to offer any proof.

What is in their burgers are a long list of chemicals, most of them carcinogenic. Here are just four of the most common, but there are scores more:
pirimphos-methyl
propylbenzine
trichlorethylene
xylene

A question for you, mom and dad: Still want to take your kids to MacDonald's for dinner this evening?

I need to say this...america will go down in history as the ones who caused most of the rest of the world to eat chemicalised GMO foods because of greed and corruption.

No wonder many in "advanced countries" suffer from cancer! Sadly, none to bell the cat! Another bold take on what afflicts our societies, Steve - siva

I uses to live near one, I would spend a couple of minutes at a light watching people go in and out. After awhile I began to notice that most of the people that ate there had the same look and were decidedly greenish! That was all I needed back in '95

Good thing you noticed that everyone who enters comes out of there green.

Yes, J A Ridley! I've observed the same with a kid that was literally drinking Cola all day long without being able to eat anything after being so full with Cola. The kid was green in the face. And no way you could talk sense into the mother!

Well done, Steve!! A recent email that I received said that they would be getting their 'meat' from sources outside the country. So now there's the availability of mad cow disease, besides all the rest of the 'benefits' from eating at Mad Donalds

You take your life in your hands, as well as your kids', if you eat there. Thanks for commenting Glenn. I appreciate it.

again you are right on Steve..doing a fantastic job of bringing truth forward. Please give this story to Huffington Post and other caring sites. It is so important that people know what is going on instead of being sandbagged by people like Fox TV and others of such ilk.
Oh God when will things change....
You are helping bring that about.

Hardly ever eat at McDonalds..there was a fascinating documentary called "Supersize Me" in which a man ate McDonalds for every meal, everyday for a month. The effects it had on him were pretty awful, from weight gain to mood swings. Not to mention the throwing up.

I'm not aware of any law that forces us to eat or drink certain things. It is our own choice what we stuff into our mouths. So if somebody like this man does not want to take advice on what and how to eat healthy food, then he has to suffer the consequences. Bookstores, magazines, newspapers and the internet is full of good advice on how to eat to live a healthy life without any illness at all! And everybody is free to check with a health professional on the information that is out there.

Too lazy to get informed? Too lazy to shop and cook?

Fine, but the suffering of the consequences is very personal, nobody else suffers, just the individual who makes the diet mistakes.

I saw that movie, and it cured me forever from eating at McDonalds. Thanks for commenting Tini.

LOL! I'm glad I didn't see the movie! I mean what does it take to make McDonald serve proper food, it's not that difficult even for a fast food restaurant!

McDonald's doesn't care about its food, only about its profits.

Well, then let's hope that people will wake up to the fact that if they eat that stuff they WILL get ill. And if nobody eats at those fast food places anymore, there won't be any profits anymore. But the masses won't be told ... :(

Excellent report, thank you Steve. And who gets hit hardest of all? The less affluent off course. It's always the poor. Our present time, makes me think that the futuristic movie "Soylent Green" (Charlton Heston) is almost upon us. They were eating people, disguised as green cookies. LOL

I remember that movie, and I hope it doesn't come to that. Thanks Tranquilpen.
