I can see it now... people will start to bring their own packaging

we don't eat out much so this does not affect my family in anyway..

I do prefer IN and OUT over McDonalds though..

In other news today, water is wet:D

Seriously, I already knew this years ago. Then again, considering that I'm interested in nutrition, it makes sense that I would already know about this.

Fast food is always shit for your health, and always inferior to home cooked meals in everything but time and effort. At least it is here in America.

Not sure about other countries though. I remember seeing a certain french fast food website, and by god, even though I could only make out some of the words, the pictures were absolutely divine! 8o

So what exactly is this chemical fluorine? How is it harmful? And why is it showing up in fast food packaging? *goes to look it up*

edit: reading the wiki article now https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fluorine

This is nothing new and hardly ground breaking information. And believe it or not, you're exposed to fluorine in more ways than you may think. The fluoride ion is what helps to prevent dental cavities, so that is what is used in fluoride in toothpaste and tap water. Organic fluorides are used in refrigerants, electrical insulation and non-stick cookware, and as PTFE, which is Teflon. I used to work at one my local McDonald's for almost four years, and I'm guessing that the fluorine found in the food packaging may actually come from the food preparation process itself, since most of the utensils and cooking surfaces used in fast food places are Teflon coated. Which that's probably even more of a concern, since you'd actually be ingesting that from the food that's cooked instead of it just touching it. But, like most other things that are harmful or bad to our health, chemical or otherwise, you'd probably have to ingest a lot at one single time to have something bad happen.

Frankly I'm more concerned about the fact that Consumer Reports has found that around 97% of commercial beef contained fecal material when they tested it. Now that's just gross and can make you a lot more sick a lot quicker.

Psh, I prefer Wendy's over McDonalds... even though Wendy's isn't 100 percent healthy either.
Everything seems like it's out to kill you anyways. Heck, they even said bacon caused cancer... or COULD cause it. Oh well, I'll stick with my bacon and Wendy's.

I remember as a kid when McDonalds came in that styrofoam packaging. I heard they ditched those for similar reasons.
