#McDStories Working drive-thru shift as a teenager. Arch Deluxe fell off the conveyor belt onto the floor. Re-wrapped it and sent it out.

#mcdstories My dad ate there, pulled off the road, puked violently in empty cooler.Hasn't been back since. I was 7. Thanks for that memory

#McDstories When I was 16 with only a couple of GCSE exams under my belt, I was turned down for a job at McD because I was "overqualified"!

It's lame. Bashing McD is like some kind of fad or something.

But McD's like

Billion dollar corporation.
You think a few twitter posts, a bunch of documentary videos, movies, etc
are going to stop anyone from going??


The only people that don't go to McD's are those that never went in the first place.
These stories aren't changing anyone's opinon.

Only reason McD's always in the spotlight is because they are #1 at the top of fast food restaurants.
Naturally, everyone wants to take down first place.

It is mind-boggling to me that somehow the BRAND of a food makes it bad for you, rather than the STUPID CHOICES people make in what they eat. Talk about a cop out!

What's really mind boggling to me is all these idiots that bash McDonalds for being "unhealthy" but continually eat at these Hong Kong style cafes.

Not necessarily true, some people that were thinking mcdonalds earlier might be deterred from going. Although that might be the case and the result is negative comments regarding the brand, I think it does a great job in creating awareness and maybe that's all they need for more sales.

With that in mind, if a large group of people start posting anti-mcdonalds videos that show people where the food comes from etc. etc. while using the hashtag, then I think that might be small threat.

Exactly. I know its not healthy, and sometimes I feel like crap after eating it just like I feel like crap when I eat too much junk food - yet the rest of the time it sure tastes good! Nuggets + sweet/sour sauce == happiness!

That myth has been debunked. Don;'t believe crap you read on FB posted by hippies.

Best way to look at it

Best Answer - Chosen by Voters

It's as bad as any of the processed food we all eat. Unless you eat non-cooked raw food all the time, you are eating processed food. Mc Donald's beef is real beef, their chicken is real chicken, their fries are from real potatoes. There are a lot of false rumors out there about Mc Donald's. The bun gives you B vitamins, the meat gives you protein, the cheese gives you calcium, the lettuce and tomato give you Vitamin A and C, the oil gives you Vitamin E. Anyone can survive off Mc Donald's but food that is cooked at high temperatures makes certain chemicals... (oxidization is thought to help cause cancer) but that can be said of cooking any food, even homemade food at high temperatures. Raw food is the only way to have clean unprocessed stuff, but it is still full of pesticides which cause cancer, and even if you get organic raw food, you don't know forsure that it's organic, and the pollution absorbed in the food will kill you anyway. It's a lose-lose situation. This world is messed up. There is only one person who can help us.

You guys do realize that McDonalds USA and McDonalds in Canada are COMPLETELY different, right? I eat once in a while at McD's in Canada, however I will never step into a US store again in my life.

100% true.

I will never eat at a American McDonalds again....fucking disgusting.After I ate a combo meal,I felt like I wanted to puke,never have I ever had that feeling eating McD's ever.It was just not me either,the people I was with who also ate there,felt the same way too.

Shit even their ice cream tastes different,they must use goat's milk or something.
