    I'm having a hard time believing that they didn't already know the ungodly levels of crap that's in there.

    this thread title reminded me that the moe's nearest to me has as its most expensive menue item... a cup of fat? :confused:

    i haven't gotten around to asking if that's some sort of joke.

    This is why I stopped eating there a long time ago. I don't want to die in my 30s. It's probably been a couple of years since I ate any trans fats.
  10. But they still taste damn good.

    Rock on
  11. Anyone else here love the movie "Super Size Me"??? I absolutely love that movie, with a great passion. Especially on Day 3 ( I think it was) Very informative, and I hope it opened up some peoples eyes, I know it did mine. I try to limit my fast food intake, and being broke definately helps!!!!

  12. I don't love it. While I understand the point, the premise is somewhat ridiculous. You could replace McDonald's with any number of other foods/restaurants and achieve the same results.
  13. this just in: deep fried fast food is bad for you...

    err.. lol

    we dont need anybody tell us that anything deep fried in gallons of greese every day is bad for us

  15. His "crusade" wasn't against McDonalds soley.. he was proving a point about the fast food industry in general, and McyDees just so happened to be his example. The same obviously goes for Wendys and Burger King, as well as Taco Bell, KFC, and other chains.

    Less than a decade ago trans fat was hailed as the most healthy type of fat. It was also said that a high fat diet would lead to cancer. Eating a high fiber diet was believed to prevent colon cancer. These notions have all been "proven" to be false and baseless claims. I believe that we should all make our own judgements and not assume that what we are being told is true.

    ...and to our friends across the pond over there in Europa: My big sister lived in Paris for a couple of years, and then she moved to Den Hague, and lived there for 12 more. I visted her on three different occasions during that spell. I discovered that folks in Holland, Paris and Belgium, who eat 'French-fried' potatoes (usually MacDonald's...) enjoy them with mayonaise! American visitors have to specifically ask for ketchup... if they have any... however, it's been 10 years since I've had the pleasure of cruising around Europe, so dietary preferences most certainly could've changed. Wife and I plan on a European vacation in '08. We'll probably stop into a Mickey D's somewhere for a coke and some fries... with mayonaise... :D
