McDonalds is like any other publicly owned resteraunt chain. They have a clear agenda and that is to make money (not to make people fat as it would seem you are implying). If the public were to suddenly decide to go on a world wide health kick, McDonalds would litarally adapt over night and start selling health food as well. They already are doing it to small degree with their adult happy meals. But they will tell you that people dont really buy them. The change must be publicly driven, then the entrpeneurs will follow.
everyone hates mcdonalds??? - i had no idea - I
as a special treat we go and eat there every two months.
I agree to one hundred per cent. McDonalds only want to profit, and therefore take no responsibility whatsoever.
And they're not trying to make people fat, however they try and make people think it's healthy food. Here(in Australia), there's a situation with a childrens' hospital which has a Mcdonalds store in it. And most moderately intelligent people realize this isn't a concerning company. The people here are pretty pissed, however McDonalds say their food is healthy and should therefore stay. How do McDonalds operate? They deliberately target the children at a young age to make them say McDonalds food instead of Momma's food is the best. Sure, parents should take a bigger responsibility, but shouldn't we demand some responsibility from McDonalds? Their so called healthy salads they're trying to sell now, have been criticized for being too fat, so what are we supposed to do? And I can assure you that they try to kill every attempt of other healthier food-chains, otherwise we'd for sure seen them. I am sure though that we'll see a global one eventually, but for that to happen USA most make the call, and that seems to take a long time.
