More revelations about health problems and the fast food industry. McDonald’s recently revealed that their fries contain wheat and dairy, plus more trans fats than previously reported:
A report by British researchers states that customers would have to walk about 9 miles to walk off a Big Mac lunch, while a meal at KFC requires a 6-mile walk: http://channels.netscape.com/homerealestate/package.jsp?name=fte/burnoffbigmac/burnoffbigmac&floc=wn-ns
However, there is good news in the same report. We can go back to the original fast food – raw fruits and vegetables - an apple (sold by some McD’s outlets) contains about 45 calories and requires only a 0.3 mile walk, and a stick of celery has even fewer calories requires only a 0.013 mile walk. But, walking is fun and good exercise. So, why not take a break from your computer, and walk to the supermarket or wet market and get some fruits and vegetables!
