@ Nurcowski: I love strawberry flavor more than actual strawberries. Did you know the dye that makes it red comes from beetles? Yum.

I did repairs at macdonalds such as toilet replacement, plumbing etc. I never saw an employee wash his hands on shift. The FF are not vegetarian They are injected with pig and cow fat. Also salt and sugar. This stuff is not food. They sell a break today or a social event, not a meal. Do not feed it to kids.

to be fair, Titanium-dioxide is in pretty much anything white. (toothpaste, pills, bread products, frosting, etc) my art teacher taught us this, because titanium dioxide is what makes white oil paint white. and he told us how its in most of the food we eat too.
not sure about those other chemicals but if you look at any food product now adays chances are you`ll find some strange chemical

I love how they give these scary chemical names and then say that it`s in leather stain remover and detergent. I`m pretty sure dihydrogen monoxide is in both of those things but we drink glasses of it daily (water).

I work at Burger King here in Florida. We get visited by OER a lot and we`ve made 10 95`s in a row now. We only lose points for our SOS (Speed of service).

"fecal material" gets on everything, cause its really tiny and spread easily. mythbusters showed it gets on the toothbrushes in your bathroom too. so dont fret about it.

And mcD`s fries are effin delicious.

I always find it funny that people are so surprised at info like this. We all know that fast food isn`t one of the best places to eat, and we make so much fun of the people who work there, and this is how they get back at us. (Yes, I worked in fast food too, I loved putting hot sauce in soft drinks of people who were a-holes)

You realize pretty much every single thing you`ve ever touched has been "contaminated by fecal bacteria", right? Unless present in significant quantity (which this infographic handily skips over providing whether it was or not), it`s not an issue at all. You likely get more fecal bacteria when you touch your own bathroom door.

Hey, I didn`t say I was concerned about getting sick. I know I won`t get sick. My concern is rather that I don`t want to be ingesting other people`s faecal material. It`s not a health thing, it`s a me-not-eating-other-people`s sh*t thing. I`m a bit OCD that way, call me crazy.

Okay for the McDonald`s fans I have a test for you.

If you know you LOVE that food SO much, without a doubt in your head LOVE it that you`d take McDonald`s over any other real sit-down-be-served restaurant I bet you can`t stay two weeks without it.

To those who will say "Pfft I`ve gone x weeks without it!" Okay, double that time.

By the time you end your last week, I am certain you will not crave the food anymore. As an added challenge, try cutting High Fructose Corn Syrup, MSG/Monosodium Glutamate, and anything you can`t pronounce from your diet. Completely, do not cheat.

When you eat McDonald`s again, you -will- taste the difference.

man, i used to work at a subway in Gillette wyoming, and my boss`s were so anal about keepin the place clean, it was crazy! they wanted to have a deep-cleaning session once every week, but the owners didnt want to pay everyone to come in and clean so they dropped it to once a month. and even then you never wanted to complain about having nothing to do, "ok, since you`re so board, clean this wall, then do the oven vent" jeeesus

I honestly couldn`t care how bad it is for me. Once every month or so, I want a Big Mac, dammit! And everytime, it`s delicious.

And wow... almost 4000 calories a day? That`s quite a lot. With my weight and height, if I sat on my ass all day I`d burn approx. 1900 calories. I don`t, and am actually quite active, and probably eat about 2100 or so. Depending if I eat trail mix or not XD That stuff is delicious, but most definitely calorie filled.

Ike, if you`re a small person, you need less calories to maintain your weight than a larger person. An average 5`8 healthy active guy needs 2K calories, but a 5`1 healthy girl with average activity needs a lot less. 1500 might be a little low but not by much.
I`m currently 5`1 and I`m eating 1500 calories a day, but I`ve been dieting and loosing a lot of weight on purpose. If I ate 2000 calories a day I`d actually gain weight.

No kidding there is fecal bacteria on the pop dispenser and it is also on your toothbrush and many other places that food particles sit for extended times. As the food breaks down it turns into fecal materials the same as it does when it breaks down in your body. Surprising how few people know this.

They also take some of the chemicals used in the foods which are also in many many other foods and then list something that is not food that the chemical is also contained in just to make it sound scary or something.

There is a lot of misleading info on this that while correct is still nothing more than an attempt to paint an ugly picture of fast food in general while making you think the facts are there to help you or something.

"3.7k calories a day? I count my calories and I consider it overeating when I eat 2k calories..can`t imagine eating nearly 4k :("

then you`re doing something wrong....2k, unless you`re just sitting on your ass, is undereating. sure it`ll keep you "skinny" but you`re also slightly malnourished.

"Proof: Experience. One evening at home I drank two glasses of various juiced vegetables and fruit, and I felt full. When I`m at a restaurant, I`ll go through two iced teas AND the meal until I feel full or satisfied."

all you`re proving is that calories make you full...we know this. but its also a mental thing. at home it might`ve taken you 30 minutes to down those 2 drinks while at the restaurant it took you 30 minutes (or less sometimes) to eat that. heck I can eat a snickers and feel full for 3-4 hours or drink 1-2 8oz glasses of V8 (home made) and not feel full

Remember: It`s not how much you put in your stomach, it`s the nutrients that make you full.

Only in America.
1) We think it`s ok to put toxic materials on our skin, yet know we can`t eat it.
2) I honestly don`t think there is any uncontaminated food in America. From genetic engineering, to pesticides, to runoff, and to a lesser extent, whatever is sprayed in the air day-today.
