Infographic Shows What A Big Mac Does To Our Body After One Hour
Lifestyle| | By Madeleine Richards
Health professionals have reacted to Fast Food Menu Price’s infographic, saying it is a bit of an exaggeration. Lisa Moskovitz, CEO of the New York Nutrition Group, told Yahoo Health that many of these factors, such as dehydration and addictive feelings vary a lot from person to person. Factors such as daily exercise, nutrition and current hydration state affect these reactions. A dietitian and spokeswoman, Priya Tew of the British Dietetic Association, noted the study that lead to the infographic was flawed, as it was very small scale and tested on rats not humans. Tew did agree though that a Big Mac is very unhealthy and should be enjoyed no more than once a month if at all. A statement from McDonald’s UK said: “We do not recognize the ingredients or nutritional information within this graphic. The so-called facts in this image are misleading and bear no resemblance to the Big Mac available to customers in the UK. We have been displaying nutritional information for all of our menu items for over 30 years so it is a shame to see such inaccurate figures and information being circulated.” It seems that all of this information leads us to the conclusion we were aware of since Supersize Me: fast food is pretty bad for you, and one should only splurge rarely, if ever.
