Burger King now has a quad-stacked hamburger. With a large coke and fries that comes out to a whopping 1840 calories. Don’t forget to add some “Funnel Cake Sticks” for dessert.
Every time you eat, you’re voting for a food system. The less shit like this we consume, the less likely we are to see unnecessary, unhealthy abominations like this on the international menu. This is disrespectful all the way up the chain, from the animals slaughtered for this base gluttony to the farmers out there who put care into their meats and produce to the consumer, both those of us who’d never touch this sandwich to those who would. It doesn’t matter if you wouldn’t eat this; other Americans will, and we’ll both pay the price, they with their health and we with our tax dollars to support rising medical costs for a nation poisoning itself.
How do you stop it? Don’t eat this sandwich. Don’t eat from fast food restaurants, period. Vote with your dollars by shopping at the farmer’s market. Vote with your stomach by eating real food, grown on real farms. Don’t give in to convenience and excess just because you can.
Amen to that, sister.
