McDonald’s, the world’s largest restaurant chain, says its french fries contain a third more trans fats than previously thought, citing results of a new testing method it began using in December.
But you know what? Ppl will still eat at McD because they are cheap* and they taste good. While I’m on this subject, ever notice that the “healthier” stuff are more expensive than the not-so-healthy stuff? This is true everywhere, *especially* in the junk food places.
A quick test – go down to your supermarket and check out the prices for lean mince and regular mince. Guess which one is more expensive? So try and argue the healthier factor with the poor working class.
But damn it though, I still think the fries are yum. Even though they are not only fatty, they also don’t decompose. Pity that they had removed the beef-flavouring though. 😛
* Only applies in Western countries. Street/hawker food in most Asian countries are cheaper than McD but they are not exactly healthy either. Moderation ppl!
