Years ago McDonalds did introduce a healthy burger. It was called a McLean or something and had few calories and fat. Do you see it offered anymore? No, because apparently the public wants high caloried and high fat food because it tastes better. It's perfectly healthy eat high fat foods once in a while, it won't do your body any harm but if you eat it every day then of course you will become fat and unhealthy


85 to 95% of Americans are claimed to have visited McDonald's once or more in any year. But 77% of customer visits to McDonald's US stores (ie. 3 out of 4 people who walk in the door) are from people who eat there on average 3 times a week ('heavy users'). 11% of visits are from 'Super Heavy Users', who eat there 4 or more times per week [Testimony of David Green in the McLibel trial, 1994]
