Why you should avoid fast food at all costs.

  1. Most of the.article was logical.falavies and the article didnt contain any evidence for its claims. Was it overstated or just plain wrong? We cant know because they didnt cite any sources.

    Not defending fast food, just pointing out the reason the public doesnt know these things is because all the anti fast food people reason with falacies and paranoia.

    Ill give some examples.

    The article claimed that mcdonalds burgers were made of meat byproducts, calling it "connective tissues and other parts noteant for human consumption. " aside from the fact that it is an emotional falacy, it is wrong. Meat byproducts are not only fit for human consumption, but contain most of the same biomolecules as the normal meat. Mostly proteins and fats. The only meat byproduct you shouldnt eat is the liver, which contains toxins.

    Another thing is this amonium hydrlxide claim. Id like to see some science behind this claim.
     
  2. does this apply to subway? i love those damn subs yo
     
  3. I work at Culver's lol, the number one selling item is our 12 piece chicken and Butterburgers. Butterburger just sounds horrible for you

    I guess im fucked then lol
     
  5. I would still eat fast food if I could but I found hairs in my food at McDonalds two times in a row.

    THINK ABOUT THAT. Next time you're about to take a bite into a seductively delicious double cheeseburger just know this; their may be a hair from an underpaid, disgruntled fast-food employee.

  6. oh no a hair!!!!!!!! it will be the end of us all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    na but it is pretty gross.

    one time someone i know found a hair in his sub at subway so he went up and told them they gave him a free sub and didn't even check if there was actually a hair.
    good customer service is is hard to find these days.
     
  7. Yup! I avoid nasty meat pretending crap since a few months ago.

    Been buying fruit veggies fish meat and preparing myself.

    My wallet loves me now!

    Plus I go out to actual good places to eat.

    I haven't sat in a drive thru window in months and LOVING IT!!!
     
  8. So in short, I spend less money and get to eat actual burgers from this one place ($12 average for a burger).

    After some time I did some math and fast food people are pure idiots.
     

  9. Good choices, you'll live a little longer.
     
  10. i was on the road yesterday and HAD TO EAT,i stopped/ate by checkers :(
     
  11. Fast food is so disgusting I want to barf at the sight of it. The only fast food I can eat without throwing up or getting horribly sick is chipotle. I love chipotle.


    Its all processed.

    Its psychological

    Mcdonalds is yummy. However im allergic to soy so i dont eat anything massproduced anymore. Corn and milk too. I guess my allergies are a blessing because im forced to eat home made food. I eat more veggies Now too
     

  13. This ^^ fast food seems cheap but totally fucking isn't.:smoke:

    And yeah I work at a mid-level restaurant(Original Joe's) and while most of our stuff is frozen not prepared fresh, it's still way better than fast food, and the standard burger is 12$ and its a pretty fucking huge burger, definitely dwarfs pussy mcdicks burgers.:hello: and sides are included in that price(most of the anyway).
     

  14. Whats psychological?

    I'm allergic to corn, soy, and milk too. And also gluten. I got gut problems.:(

    Damn i feel your pain. Being allergic to soy and milk is hell. The corn not so bad i can live without corn

    But i meant the wanting to barf is psycological. I know all the "horrers" of fast food, im just not grossed out by it
     

  16. I'm super allergic to corn. And its literally put in everything. If I eat even a tiny bit I'll get violently ill.

    Yeah just knowing the ingredients and how its made is a turn-off.

    Why is that gross? All carniverous animals eat every part of the animal, including us before we become snoby.

    How is connective tissue and brain matter gross?? Whats wrong with hearts and kidneys and bone marrow? These things are made of mostly the same stuff as meat. Only humans find this gross..

    Logically the only part you shouldnt eat is the liver. Because possibly has toxins.

    Not eating "pink slime" is actually a sinful waste. And the name is an emotional falacy too
     
  19. Well looks like Im going to die, I eat fast food like everyday multiple times a day mmmmmm I love it. Fuck off
