Sent this to a friend who just enjoys packing down her body with junk. I'm hoping she will make the decision to turn things around for her health. Knowledge is power. Thought I would share it with you, as well. Hope you read it all. It's stuff most of us know, but I picked up a couple new things in it that I didn't know that just turns my stomach, quite informative.

After I read this I truly feel convinced that I should return to vegetarianism.

The good thing about being a vegetarian is that there is very little to tempt me at fast food places anymore. . . . Even with fries, I get paranoid about what they are cooked in--so whereas I would have once chugged them down, I freak out about meat and other animal byproducts.

Have you looked up on Youtube on the experiments they've done on McDonalds fries & their food? Those fries don't turn rotten...ever it seems...months & years down the road. While a normal french fry we'd make at home from a potato would sooner than later. In your life, ever notice under the passenger seat while cleaning your car...how that one lone random McDonalds fry appears as you vacuum? With no idea how long it's been there ((months? years?))...it looks like it was fried the day before.

About fries, I read that they use beef flavoring, so they are not veg anyway.

Yeah, McDonald's french fries aren't vegetarian except if you live in the UK.

Im speaking of its decaying process ((lack of)) & its chemicals...not whether its vegetarian or not. I have friends & family who aren't vegetarian who have rode in my car ((as most or all of us have in yours)) and when I have come across a lone fry under the seat while cleaning out my car, it looks exactly like it just came out of the fryer. Seeing the old, still looking fresh/new fry roused my curiosity to look up why it still looks freshly fried. Beef flavoring is one of the least of problems in those manufactured things.

How do they make them in the UK?

The only downside of the article is it cites no sources. Always makes me suspicious of exaggerations. FF is pretty gross on its own without exaggerations.

My boyriend works at a McDonalds. I have to say that as a Canadian employer, they're decent, with decent wages, fair evaluations and raises and a GOOD insurance plan. 80% coverage, eyes, dentistry, medication, etc. I think no one should be on wellfare when they can get a McDos job.

They don't add beef flavoring in the UK that is all I know :) And really yes the fries are gross but since they aren't vegetarian, I don't eat them. And a lot of vegetarians eat processed stuff, I try to minimize processed stuff myself but that doesn't mean all vegetarians do.

Went I jumped off my vegetarian eating when I got sick & started eating whatever I wanted and blew up to the size of my house in a 2 year period :o ....I will not ever have to be hit twice in the head. Getting fat AND feeling terrible was ....well, terrible. I thought it would take longer than it did to wean all of that crud & cravings out of my system. Took a month & I was good to go. Eating vegetarian (before & now), I avoid potatoes, they go straight to my hips. Carbs & I just do not get along very well....I have to keep such a close eye on them. I eat what I know I need for the day & what I'll work off...that's it.

I eat processed foods here & there too ...probably about 10-15% of my daily eating is processed. Daiya & Veggie Burgers from Morning Star Farms I won't give up yet. I'm weak. :D
