New research: corporate chemicalized fast food makes you fat & sick

In in the interest of being fair - and to balance out the regularly scheduled attacks on clean food that afflict these pages - some real news about about corporate industrial fast food (think GMOs, herbicides, pesticides, fungicides, preservatives, synthetic chemical 'flavor enhancers,' and of course the deservedly despised HFCS*, etc. etc.):

Researchers have found a ‘striking’ new side effect from eating fast food

April 15, 2016 - The Washington Post

"Researchers at George Washington University have linked fast-food consumption to the presence of potentially harmful chemicals, a connection they argue could have "great public health significance."

"Specifically, the team found that people who eat fast food tend to have significantly higher levels of certain phthalates, which are commonly used in consumer products such as soap and makeup to make them less brittle but have been linked to a number of adverse health outcomes, including higher rates of infertility, especially among males.
