11 Brutal Ways McDonald’s Can Ruin Your Health
Your heart health will be affected
When it comes to long-term illnesses caused by poor lifestyle choices, the harsh truth is that a diagnosis almost never comes alone.
For example, if you have an increased risk of type 2 diabetes (or have already been diagnosed with it), you also increase your risk for cardiovascular disease.
Almost every menu you can get at McDonald’s exceeds the daily amount of sugar recommended by the American Heart Association.
Here’s an example: if you enjoy a McDonald’s Big Breakfast with Hotcakes, you will have eaten your daily recommended intake of sugar before 10:00 a.m. I’m not even mentioning the sodas, which are overloaded with artificial flavors and added sugars.
McDonald’s meals are also dangerously high in trans fats. This is the most dangerous type of fat you could possibly eat; in fact, it’s so dangerous doctors recommend having zero trans fats daily.
Both the added sugars and trans fats can increase your bad cholesterol along with extra pounds. These factors combined can lead to several cardiovascular problems including clogged arteries.
