When I see people eating fast food on the daily, I can't help but wonder why they do that to their body. One reason that fast food is horrible, is because they put the animals through cruel living to get the product, and to prevent them from getting sick from those conditions they pump them full of antibiotics which often end up in our food. I bet people wonder what exactly chicken nuggets, or chicken products in general our made out of. Well, they contain a chemical preservative called tertiary butylhydroquinone, which is derived from petroleum. Yes, the stuff you put in your car. I suggest you don't do harm to your body with all these scraps that would naturally go to waste, but instead go in some of your favorite meals. Obesity is also a big part of why people shouldn't live off fast food. Fast food is not the cause of obesity in America, but it's not helping the issue either. More than 16% of children in America are obese. As a result of many lawsuits, a high number of fast food restaurants are required to offer apple slices and milk with their kids meals. I hope I've made you think twice about going to buy a couple burgers or nuggets, because you don't know what your eating. It's time for America to back off the Mickey D's.
