Eating fast food is not advisable, by we all have guilt pleasures and like to have junk food once a week. However, we have our fears of how the food is produced in fast food kitchens, hygiene in those places.

But we are busting 7 highly believed myths about fast food that you just know.

1 McD incorruptible burger

People always believe that food that is made in industrial ways always have been treated with chemicals to make them last longer. For some reason, this gave rise to the myth of the incorruptible McDonald’s burger. It was said that McDonald’s burger doesn’t disintegrate.

However, McDonald’s Canada decided to debunk the silly rumor and said that though their burgers tend to dry out rather rotting, but it is due to the absence of moisture in the burgers during the cooking process. This was confirmed by an independent study, which confirmed that McD burgers rotted in normal humid conditions.

2 Food at sit down restaurants is healthier than at Fast food restaurant

As it goes for a common family, they think that a sit down restaurant is cleaner and has healthier food than a fast food joint where people basically inhale their food rather than civilly eating it. However a study conducted by Drexel found out that restaurant meal for an adult contains more calories than a fast food joint meal of burger, fries and cola. A full meal clocks well over 1,500 calories and more than required amount of fat and sodium content.

So think about this when you choose to eat out on weekends.
