I am always amazed by "is it really" questions, the answers to which in 99% of cases are nowhere more obvious. Show me an adequate person who would say that it is not harmful to eat fast food? It's junk food by definition, and it doesn't matter if you bought it at KFC, McDonald's, or Ashot around the corner. This sounds more like a veiled ad than a real question.
Too high in calories. For example, in terms of 100 g, a biscuit in KFC is 356 kcal, various types of chicken dishes from 150 to 450 kcal. And now the main thing is that 100 g of sugar contains 399 kcal. And of course, there will be more than 100 grams of portions. Therefore, getting obese with regular fast food is as easy as two fingers ...
Fast food is almost synonymous with fried food. Fried right up to crunch, in a large amount of oil. This is a verdict on your digestive system. Indeed, the crust is full of carcinogens, and the total fat / calorie content of the product strains your liver and pancreas to the fullest. Carcinogen means something that causes cancer. Scary, but I don't particularly like such methods of intimidation. You may stay in burger clubs all your life, but you will never get cancer. Such horror stories play into the hands of those who deny the harm of something. But you are guaranteed to get problems with the digestive and cardiovascular system. Therefore, consider that these are just toxins, substances that destroy the cells of your stomach, liver, pancreas, kidneys and ... including the brain. How do you want? That's why they are toxins.
The food itself is inferior. In such establishments, of course, there are even salads and mineral water, but who buys them at all, even at such prices? Everyone goes for burgers, chicken, or sweets. It is extremely difficult to reach your daily intake of vitamins and minerals if you do not eat enough vegetables and fruits. I'm not even talking about the fact that such food improves digestion, contains certain substances that strengthen human health, for example, antioxidants. But you can easily exceed your intake of, for example, salt and sugar.
To the question of the quality of the products themselves. Of course, unlike Ashot's shawarma, there are certain rules in KFC and similar places, sanitary standards are observed there. At least that's what we're told. And I doubt it, to be honest. Several times I was with friends in such fast food restaurants (different companies), and the result was always the same - the food was not as beautiful and tasty as in the picture, and after half an hour these people were looking for a toilet nearby. No, they weren't poisoned, just an upset stomach.
Yes, it's harmful, fast food has a lot of fats, carbohydrates, proteins, kcal, contains carcinogens (deep-fried oil, saturated fats), which, with daily consumption, stimulate cancer. In general terms, this is the same as fueling a moped with nuclear fuel)
My head every day, or at least every other day, to be clean. But people often say that washing so often is harmful. Is this so?
