: I thought all McDonald's worldwide used vegatable oil these days in their fryers. I understand it's no better and in many cases worse than lard though. But I'm still alive, and I haven't been out sick from work in nearly 10 years. I must be doing something right.

: Veggies have a right to practice their ways, and say what they want about meat eaters, and big mac eaters in particular. But there really are no guarantees.

All the BK's (In the USA anyway, I'm not sure about the whole world) use 100% vegetable shortning. I'm not a vegetarian, but from what I understand, it is much healthier than animal fat shortning. And I think that back in the early 80's BK was the first chain to switch to veggie shortning.
