It is going viral like wildfire...
If you stumble on her facebook posting, you see all sorts of lovely comments where other people have tagged supposed friends and family making not-so-nice comments along the lines of "see what you are doing to little Susie/Johnny".
Back to the topic at hand though.
Snopes.com did research on this topic (as well as quite a few other independent sources) and came up with a big fat FALSE.
They compared to even homemade burgers.
Long story short, the issue is moisture. Mold needs moisture to grow. Due to the thin-ness of a lot of McDonald's food products, the moisture evaporates before mold is able to grow.
I am not here to claim McDonald's to be healthy, but I think it gets a worse rap than it deserves.
We all ate McDonald's as kids.
Then our parents sent us out to the "dangerous and scary" playground where we did this silly thing called playing with other children.
*Gasp* we even played in structures that looked like this!
(yes, I know I chose a picture of old timey McDonald's characters, but they are nostalgic)
McDonald's (or BK, or Wendy's) is not to blame for childhood obesity. Stop using it as a scapegoat.
It's not going to kill you.
I just feel that McDonald's has enough to gripe about without people adding unnecessary stress to the pot. Just let it be people.
If you don't want fast food, don't eat it.
Soapbox signing off.
Almost afraid to ask..but how do you feel about all of this?
