What do Big Mac vendors hide from us?

For more than forty years, Americans, whose national cuisine has practically become fast food, have been eating Big Macs with appetite, washing them down with Coca-Cola. What is the secret of such a general love for this sandwich, we will tell in our article. And at the same time we will understand what it is: a dangerous meal or a completely acceptable substitute for home-made meals.

What make a sandwich: the official version

Big Mac is a product of McDonald's. In 1967, the franchisor of this network, Jim Delligatti, who managed several restaurants in Pittsburgh, created a sandwich that differed from all other hamburgers by having a third layer of bread, which did not allow the new sandwich to break up.

Apparently, with this he won the sympathies of the Americans, and after a few years was sold not only in Pennsylvania, but in all other US states. They tried to call him “Aristocrat” and “Hamburger with a blue ribbon”, but the simple and short name “Big-Mac” stuck.

Representatives of McDonald's assure that only natural products are used in the preparation of the sandwich.In confirmation of this, they filmed more than one video by launching them to travel across the Internet:

What is dangerous harmless sandwich?

Meanwhile, nutritionists warn: Big Mac is a dangerous food. The composition of the sandwich is, at first glance, harmless: a bun, pickled cucumbers, lettuce, cheddar cheese, onions, beef and special sauce. But upon closer inspection, some ingredients do not look so harmless.

Specialists at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles decided to find out how the use of a Big Mac as food affects a person. The results of their research should alert all those who care about their health.

Within ten minutes from the moment this hamburger enters the stomach, the blood sugar level increases dramatically, the brain gives a signal to develop substances responsible for good mood, and the neurotransmitter dopamine is generated in the body, the appearance of which causes a feeling of satisfaction. This combination of feelings and emotions is addictive, and the person begins to use fast food regularly.

Hamburger manufacturers hide another fact: corn syrup and sodium chloride contained in the composition of its rolls and sauce stimulate the feeling of hunger, and within twenty minutes a person wants to eat again.What it will lead to, we don’t need to explain, we think: you will get used to fast food, overeating and excess weight.

Full man and death

Sodium chloride also has another effect: it inhibits the output of salt and dehydrates the body, gives an additional load to the kidneys and increases blood pressure.

Fat man

If the body gets rid of the main part of the substances that make up the hamburger for a couple of days, transisomeric fats are retained in it for a much longer period, namely, 51 days. If you eat these sandwiches regularly, fatty acids will accumulate, causing obesity. Isn't that dangerous food?

Hamburger with pills

Roll and sauce, which are used in the process of making a sandwich, contain a lot of food additives, including preservatives, the most harmless of which are guar gum and soy lecithin.

If after that you still doubt that Big Mac is a dangerous food, you should be convinced by the statistics. Since the main consumer of fast food is still the United States, scientists have gathered information regarding McDonald’s regulars.

It turns out that over the past 35 years, the average annual consumption of fast food chain products increased by a quarter, and the number of obese people has tripled. As a result, today six out of ten Americans are overweight.

It is also alarming that a 14% increase in the number of full adolescents, whose excess kilograms later turn into serious health problems: the emergence of cardiovascular diseases and diabetes.
