Is McDonald’s really that bad for you? This video compares McDonald’s foods to foods offered from some other restaurants.
Just how awful is McDonald’s food? We know that McDonald’s has been known to use some pretty questionable ingredients including foul ingredients like GMOs.
Mario Dupuis, a production manager at McCain Foods in New Brunswick, discussed where the potatoes are washed, peel and cut. They are also blanched to “remove natural sugars” that would cause colour variations then soaked in dextrose for an even colour. There’s also an ingredient to prevent greying, drying to remove excess moisture and a quick-fry for 45 to 60 seconds before the french fries are frozen for shipping.
The worst part are the ingredients. Instead of the standard two ingredients necessary to make french fries-potatoes and oil, there are approximately 17 as reported on the ingredients facts list on the company website.
McDonald’s Food vs Health Restaurants

At a glance, many of the ingredients the company uses are hazardous to human health, including those which are genetically modified (canola oil, corn oil, soybean oil), hydrogenated (soybean oil), chemically preserved and antifoaming (THBQ, citric acid, dimethylpolysiloxane), and artificially colored (sodium acid pyrophosphate).
But what goes on behind the closed doors of these fast food chains like McDonald’s is a whole different story than the one perceived by millions of unsuspecting consumers. It is time to sacrifice your desires in favour of your health. Relieve your tummy from junk and adopt more healthier food options.
These may look attractive, but McDonald’s food can do inconceivable harm to you and your family and your friends. Celebrate your birthday’s at home with cooked meals that are much more fresh. Tell yourself that you care about yourself by avoiding those fries, burgers and drinks.
