Nutritionists and medical professionals are in complete agreement that eating fast food and processed food is detrimental to the health of everyone who consumes it.
It is believed that the ingredients of McDonald’s french-fries are full of autoimmune disorders and brain damaging compounds.

- Soybean oil
- Hydrogenated soybean oil
- Natural beef flavor
- Hydrolyzed wheat
- Hydrolyzed milk
- Citric acid
- Sodium acid
- Hydrogenated oil

SlProducts such as perfumes and bio-diesel contain the exact phenol (TBHQ) that is obtainable in McDonald’s fries. The compound is used to curtail food deterioration.
It is now known that individuals that consume hydrogenated soybean oil which is a trans-fats, suffer from quite a number of cardiovascular and digestive system disorders.
It is better to consume non-hydrogenated polyunsaturated or monounsaturated oils. It is estimated that not less than 100,000 heart attacks annually in the U.S is linked to hydrogenated soybean oil consumption, this is according to the Women’s Hospital in Boston and a study carried out by the Harvard School of Public Health and the hospital Brigham.
