MDG - "It's fair to say that any business which encourages children to eat meat, as McDonalds does with its advertising, is guilty of harming the health of children for the sake of profit."


How can McDonalds be guilty of harming the health of a child when they promote and deliver a product that is highly demanded by society. If u are going to look at it like that, shouldn't the parents be guilty for allowing their children to eat McDonalds??? oh thats right, blame the big company for forcing people to eat their food:) - society is under this big "spell" from companies, making them unable to make choices for themselves.

I'm no doctor, but correct me if i am wrong, to get a heart disease from eating maccas, then u not only would have to eat it on regular occassions, but be eating it for many, many years. aswell, it would have to be the only thing on your diet. c'mon, lets be realistic!!!

as with all foods, the saying goes "everything in moderation". McDonalds is no worse or better than anything else as long as it is in moderation and part of a balanced diet.

lets keep things in perspective shall we!!!!

McSpotlight: McDonald's do their best to create the demand for their burgers; as such, they are guilty of advertising a diet known to be unhealthy; especially give the evidence that the majority of their custom comes from the users classed as 'heavy' or 'super-heavy' users; i.e. those who eat an unhealthy amount of McDonald's food in the first place.
