I am hugely gemused to read that, despite Nanny's hysterical campaign against all forms of fast food, it seems that the most "evil" of products a McDonald may in fact be rather good for you in the sense that it is the cheapest most "bountiful" food in human history.
Stephen Dubner, who co-authored "Freakonomics", hosted a debate on his blog after a reader suggested the McDouble packed a better nutritional punch for the penny than is often assumed.
The Telegraph reports that the double cheeseburger provides 390 calories, 23 grams of protein (half a daily serving), seven per cent of daily fibre, 19 grams of fat and 20 per cent of daily calcium, all for between $1 and $2.
Kyle Smith, a New York Post columnist, said:
“Facts are facts – where else but McDonald’s can poor people obtain so many calories per dollar?”
Mr Dubner added:
“The more I thought about the question, whether the McDouble is the cheapest, most bountiful, and nutritious food ever, the more I realised how you answer that question says a lot about how you see the world, not only our food system and the economics of it, but even social justice.”In other words, fast food feeds people cheaply. As ever with any food or drink, so long as you don't overdo it, it will not kill you.
