is mcdonalds the new smoking?

YEah mcdonalds is bad... But there are things out there that are just as bad or even worst!

But everything i mention mcdonalds someone has to pop out and say "ugh... thats a disgusting habbit! have u ever thought about quitting?"

Even when im eating a Big Mac walking around the mall.. they tell me to take it outside or to the food court b/c they dont want to smell the nastiness of it.
Its gotten to a point where i go to mcdonalds, and i secretly dont tell anyone for fear of reprecussions of society :-0

woah nobody has ever told me that in public before. Thats just harsh, and to me mcdonalds isnt any worse than any of the other fast food resturants, and it all matters with how much you eat. Dont go and eat it everyday and then complain how its bad for u. :| you should know that already.

the new smoking are cellphones..........cellphone companies know that cellphones cause brain tumours but they still sell this stuff since it is a multi-million dollar industry.........

just imagine, would you give up your cellphone for something that hasn't been proven in public ?


food for thought.........my ethics professor told us about it, it got me thinking....

sorry back on topic, McDs is ok once in a while............

One morning at work, the person in the next cubicle arrived and all of a sudden, I smelled this really awful odour. I thought my cubicle neighbour had stepped in a 'doggie landmine' and not realised it. It was a really sh#tty smell and I checked my own shoes just to be sure.

And then when I walked passed her cubicle, I saw the source of the smell... She had brought an Egg McMuffin.

Yes, McDonald's food smells like ****. :lol:

It doesn't matter what you eat, it's how much you eat and your lifestyle that matters. Gotta hate the people who eat fast food 3 times a day and the only exercise they do is go open the door for delivery, then tries to sue Mcdonald or KFC for making them a fatass.

Yeah fast food is becoming the new smoking if you mean it's becoming ever so slightly socially unacceptable.

I don't think it's McDonalds in particular, they're just the biggest, so they take the greatest heat.

As for why your friends hassle you, it sounds like you're always eating McDonalds! :lol: Perhaps they're more health conscious and are trying to rub on some of their perceived good habits. Probably they just want the best for you, and want you to live a long healthy life. ;)
Beans, beans, the magically fruit. The more you eat, the more you toot. The more you toot, the better you feel. So eat your beans at every meal.

Well that could be said for most things that are illegal and/or controlled.

Unfortunately when it comes to health matters, all of us Canadians should care and have a say as we all pay for each other.
