I could not dissagree more with you... Good on ya McSpotlight.
I myself can see that McDonalds is practically becoming the
diet of almost everyone in the world

It also does not surprise me that Maccas will lead to
Heart disease in the whole population of the world.

Maccas is everywhere. Whenever I go on a driving trip in
Australia, I am sure to pass at least 50 Mcdonald stores on the
way and 50 on the way back.

It is so tempting to just go by in drive thru and pick up a
quick meal without thinking of the long term damage to your
body it could lead to.

The less McDonalds there are...the better!

To not eat is a better alternative to eating McDonalds I say!
