With 70% of the United States now overweight, it seems the public is finally beginning to wake up and make healthy living its priority. Because modern-day diseases of affluence have shown no decrease (quite the opposite, actually) in recent years, it seems more and more people are abstaining from fast food joints like McDonald’s, and to the extent that the double-arch company is taking it hard.
As McDonald’s once-stable stock position plummets down into financial demise, more and more families are boycotting the franken-food fast food chain. Such shift has even caused the CEO of McDonald’s to step down as news was released of continued decline in the company’s most recent briefing.
Even though the world’s largest restaurant change might be trying to entice the public with its new board members and advertising campaigns, it seems to be losing its grip on the American public.
Perhaps it’s because McDonald’s is founded on irresponsible practices – like supporting factory farms which don’t let the hormone-injected chickens breathe, or sourcing low-quality, pesticide-treated crops for its dishes.
Maybe it’s because food-like substances it sells contain over 17 different ingredients that are virtually impossible to pronounce, and are used in the production of things like yoga mats and silly putty.
