  • The scale of McDonald's makes it impossible to avoid.

    And I don't just mean the portion sizes. McDonald's influence in the U.S is huge, and the fact that they have so many restaurants means that it will always be an option, creating temptation. And while they aren't forcing us to eat it, when there is temptation over a long period of time eventually people give in. First they just eat it a few times and then it becomes habit, because the food is so regularly available.

    This affects larger corporations as well. To compete with the overwhelming success of McDonald's other companies have to start adding in the chemicals, making their food less healthy - this applies to fast food chains, supermarket products, everyone who's been affected by McDonald's growth. They begin copying these unhealthy additives, so that they can take the customers. But then, when you buy food from another burger chain, or even supermarket food, it is (in many cases) just as bad for you as a McDonald's burger.

    So: McDonald's has influence all over the world of food, and its growth has changed the U.S and other countries where it sells food. It inevitably has damaging effects for anyone who eats it, but it's possible that it may be affecting you even when you avoid it.

  • Yes it is!

    It is doing us harm because of all the chemicals in them! In the meat they put bleach! In the bread they put pet food! And in the chicken nuggets they have ground up chicken feet, beaks eyes and what not. So whatever you do DON'T EAT MACCAS!!! IT'S BAD!!!

  • Yes this is one of the reasons why people are getting fat

    I can say this because of the documentary that I saw yesterday ,this fast food is an horrible option because you don´t really know what are the ingredients or the origin of this elements that complement the hamburger or the French fries, if you don´t have this opinion check out the documentary super size me

  • It can kill you

    First, the animals used for food are sick, so that in the final food is not noticeable, but it is precisely this process that makes us sick. Even from the moment that they feed the animals give them food with chemicals that supposedly will make greater growth and quick, but at the end we eat all that, without considering the consequences of what it does to our body. Of course, it is own decision if we want to make rich this company that is dedicated only to hurt and wanting more money.

  • Of course, i think that Mc' donalds is causing a lot of damage in their consumers.

    I don't know if the rumors that the hamburguers of Mc' donalds are made of rat meat or other rumors which people say are true, i only know that the hamburguers, french fries and the soda of Mc' donalds have a high content of fat, cholesterol and salt and this is very harmful for our health, besides this can bring obesity, in the future our heart can be damaged by the high content of fat in the blood that is causing our arteries hindering the flow of blood to the heart which could result in a myocardial. So we should just stop eating this food that do not nurture you and only damage you.

  • Mcdonald´s does not harm us, we harm ourselves eating fast food in Mcdonald´s.

    Mcdonald´s is a big fast food company that can´t serve quality food because of the commercial size that it has. This company doesn't want to kill people, it only wants to make money.
    It´s your decision if you want to consume the food that is sold in Mcdonald´s, you know that this food is bad and it can harm you. No matter how many times you eat the food, it is going to be bad for your health.

  • Unhealthy food 🍔🍟

    Nowadays people ignore the damage that this kind of food is doing to the body and I think that all the ingredients that are in this food is made of a lot of chemicals and maybe it's cheaper but at the end the consequences about eating it are lethal. Also the way they produce this fast food is not on the correct way, because they are not aware of killing innocent animals, also putting chemicals to produce more meat, and that's the reason of why the food harm us.
    Another disadvantage is that the food becomes you fat and ugly👹💀🐷🐽

  • It's bad for your health ! 🍔🍟👎

  • It might give us harm but it can be positive to.

    First, it saves up time. Today, many people are too busy to eat a perfect breakfast lunch dinner because they have work or have a meeting in a short time. But MacDonald's is a fast food that can save time. People says time is money.
    Second, you can save money. How much do you think would it cost to get ready for a perfect meal like spaghetti? I guess it would cost like maybe 15 bucks to buy the ingredients. However, when you go to MacDonald's and say you were buying a Big Mac set. The global price of a Big Mac set is about 6 bucks. So Cheap. You would save 9 dollars. I mean you can save the 9 dollars until your hole life and be rich. You never know.
    Finally affects society. Did you know that over 1.7 million employees worldwide, spread out in 118 countries countries in more than 33.000 restaurants? What if all of the MacDonald's were gone. All of the 1.7 million employees would lose their job and I do not think those people would like it.
    These are the reasons why I think MacDonald's is doing us harm

  • It's still your choice to eat and give it to your children

    The commercial size of McDonald's makes it logically impossible to produce and serve the quality of food that we need for a balanced diet. So you should be warned by your intelligence.
    It's still up to you, whether you want to use the service that McDonald's provides or just buy the ingredients to make something yourself. Nobody forces parents to host children's birthdays at McDonald's and they installed that option because there is demand for it.

    We can conclude that McDonald's is trying to make money, not sick people (within the limits to not fall into Fast Food conspiracy theories) and that they violate health guidelines as far as it's profitable for them in balance with their image and law security.

    Having said this all; McDonald's is not doing us harm. If we decide we want to go to McDonald's and comparable restaurants, we are deliberately harming ourselves and we should not try to make someone else responsible for the results of our own mistakes.

  • McDonalds can't really harm us if we don't eat it everyday

    It is our choice to consume hamburgers in that place and one important benefit that McDonalds have is that the service is very quick and the majority of the people didn't have a lot of time to spend in a formal restaurant besides to be expensive. If you don't go very frequently it can't really harm you. Their food can be really cheap, finally McDonalds makes our life easier, if you don't eat everyday a hamburger or drink a soda it can not really harm our health.

First, the animals used for food are sick, so that the final food is not noticeable, but you can feel how this food makes us sick. Even from the moment that they are feeding the animals give them food with chemicals that supposedly will make greater them growth and quickly, but at the end we finish eating their food without considering the consequences of what it does. Of course, it is your own decision if you want to make rich this company that is dedicated only to hurt.
