A few months ago, a lot of fuss was made about the fact that McDonald's issued an official "warning" to customers: going to Mickey D's more than once a week might actually be harmful to your health. This warning came at a moment of media frenzy concering the growing problem of obesity in America. Additionally, forward-thinking McDonald's reps realized that they might get sued for future health problems stemming from excessive consumption of their burgers and fries in much the same manner as Phillip Morris was sued by lifelong cigarette smokers. Warnings at least allow such companies to say, "Well, I mean, we TOLD you it was bad for you beforehand."
Stolling down the aisles of the local French supermarket, once can stumble upon the "exotic foods" section. China, Lebanon, and India are amongst the featured cuisines, with America taking the top two shelves in the middle. Going by what the French see as our typical cusine, we eat:
1000 island dressing
blue cheese dressing
a variety of tex-mex ready-made dinner "kits" with spice packets
How could anyone possibly sue McDonald's when American "cuisine' is composed entirely of processed foods?
The sister sent this great link via the comments box. For those of you who are too lazy to go looking for it, I have provided it here. It's about a real lawsuit against McDonalds. Because, you know, McDonald's is solely responsible for people's weight problems.
