Or, just reason #1 to avoid McDonalds.

12-year-old Mcdonalds hamburger

Karen Hanrahan, a health and wellness consultant, bought this hamburger in 1996. (The paper is from this year; she bought it as a prop.) “Ladies, Gentleman, and children alike,” she writes on the site, “this is a chemical food. There is absolutely no nutrition here. Not one ounce of food value. Or at least value for why we are eating in the first place.”

I know kosher food doesn’t necessarily mean it’s better for you. (And, actually, that purely chemical food stands a better chance of being kosher than the world’s most organic pig.) But I think our friends at JCarrot would testify to this: The Jewish ritual food laws, both of permitted foods and their preparation, are ideally designed to make your stomach a better place. And a McDonalds hamburger does not.
