    Go to McD's for a coffee and a hash brown in a paper packet for breakfast, go back for a combo meal for lunch, go to the drive through for a McD's coke and apple pie in a paper packet after work and suddenly that fast food costs as much a grocery store Primal.

      Maybe somebody should define fast food“ here? Is chicken breast and salad from McDonalds „fast food“? What about a milk shake?

        We don't know. They probably aren't as bad as the chem-trail morgellons detox weirdos who won't eat science food because they don't understand what's in it and get frightened at the sight of chemicals will have us believe. We're getting to the age where these things are necessary. My problem wasn't with your premise, but rather with the rhetoric. Check out how scary this egg is:

          apparently that includes yourself.

          Some weird sounding elements.
          btw, mono- and diglycerides, which are in just about everything at fast food places (if you knew how to use google you would know this too) are basically another form of trans fats.

          What I'd now like to know is exactly what dosage of those elements is actually unsafe. Are they in trace amounts? We get daily doses of radioactivity from the sun, for example. But, people still live 86 years.
          and to that age with what quality of life? one big mac might not kill you on the spot, but the inflammation is insidious and leads to major health issues down the line -- diseases people accept as part of getting older, rather than admitting they are caused by lifestyle-- like diabetes and heart disease.

          So, just how bad are those preservatives, if the question. Are they so trivial that is doesn't matter? One drop of arsenic on a silo of wheat might not amount to anything. You also have toxic chemicals in your drinking water. Been drinking that for decades years, with no issues.

            I'm still waiting for a reason why I should choose fast-food over food I cook myself.

                because you can't cook and drive at the same time, but you can drive and eat.

                            Thanks for posting actual responses to the dogmatic conjecture many people here posted. Some of you guys are as bad as vegans with red meat, when it comes to fast food.

                              Just found this:

                              Chef Jamie Oliver Proves McDonald

                              Looks like fast food is much healthier in Europe and Latin America, no pink slime and ammonium hydroxide in our Big Mac!

                              Love a bit of fast food now and again, I cannot say that it discusts me i dont eat it maybe 3-4 times a year, but it still doesnt discust me i just chose not to eat it, Because there is much better food around.
