Truths About Burger Chains Will Make You Lose Appetite

Burger establishments are famous for their soda fountains, but two studies suggest that you might be better off sticking with a bottle of water.

Ice cubes were collected from 10 randomly selected McDonald's and Burger King restaurants in the United Kingdom and subjected to yet another investigation by the BBC show Watchdog.

"Soft serve" isn't ice cream

Have you ever noticed how fast food restaurants like Dairy Queen and McDonald's refer to their frozen menu items as "soft serve" rather than just plain ice cream? This is so that they can't legally refer to what they are selling as ice cream.

Our soft serve does not technically meet the definition of ice cream. Our soft serve only contains 5% butterfat, which is below the ten percent requirement required to be considered ice cream.

Don't assume fries are vegetarian

Around 2002, McDonald's in India encountered significant legal issues as a result of mislabeling its fries and hash browns as vegetarian. In actuality, vegetable oil flavouring from beef was being used to cook the potatoes.

Further fecal finds

As you can order your favourite foods with just a few taps on a touchscreen, burger chains are starting to use them more frequently. However, always wash your hands after using one of them!

The amount of gut and faecal bacteria on the touchscreen devices startled us all. These are the ones that cause the infections that individuals get in hospitals.

Many burger chains still use meat with antibiotics

A significant health problem is the increase in bacteria that are resistant to antibiotics. Even the CDC refers to it as one of the "most urgent public health challenges" facing our world.

Burger businesses and the larger fast-food sector might significantly reduce the problem of superbugs by offering antibiotic-free meat because more than two thirds of U.S. antibiotics are marketed for use in livestock farming.
