In today's fast-paced world, it's getting harder and harder to eat right. With more choices than ever, it seems like a new health trend approaches
every day, trying to gain the approval of YOU, the honest, hardworking modern man. But how does one truly "eat like a man?" What sorts of food are
appropriate to maintain that virile sense of masculinity and keep your fibrous muscles well stocked with the sinewy raw materials necessary to keep
one's male attributes strong? It seems like men today will believe anything. So here to set the record straight is Dr. Bernays.
I know that 99.9% of us here can smell the BS on a statement like that from a mile away (although you never can be sure about that 0.1%), but it's
sadly far closer to the truth than most of us would like to admit. Advertising uses whatever down-and-dirty tactics necessary to get it's agenda
across (sell you a product of service), in this case peddling horrible poisonous food through the exploitation of what many in our culture perceive as
masculinity. By equating "being a man" with eating meat, fast food, jerky sticks, etc., these commercials reduce and redefine the male gender to
nothing more than an slobbering appetite in a sweaty t-shirt (although Homer Simpson might not mind being pigeonholed like that).
It's also part of a much larger conversation in regards to how the powers that be manipulate our opinion of ourselves and others--the same patterns
are undeniably recognizable. For many of us, questioning "the official story" on a larger scale (politics, aliens, etc.) began with the simple
realization that what you see in advertising is rarely what you get. Do any of you have examples of commercials, ad campaigns, political propaganda
etc. that were so obviously peddling false information that they forced you to wake up and start questioning things on a deeper level?
Just about any food is okay, as long as it is consumed in moderation. That being said, i think the video was pretty funny, even though it does allude
to a serious problem of which we all face in today's society.
When there are 4 times the amount of PR officers compared to journalists, you know we have a serious problem. The problem is severely compounded
though, considering that our journalists rarely perform the functions expected of them.

Because advertisements try to equate carnivorous eating with being manly, it must not be? I get that the video intends to mock the ad campaigns, but
meat is still a very healthy part of any diet. Andy needs to eat a few rare, thick cut vitamins.
I'm confused. Are you are taking that video seriously? Do you think anyone does?
From what i understand, 'Notheycant' is involved with the publishing of Don't Tread On Media's videos, on ATS. The above video was clearly
directed by DTOM. So no, i would assume that he doesn't believe the video, considering he seems to be involved with those who have made it...
Hahaha I was expecting some real doctor to be in that video... boy was I let down Bahaha.
Fast food is in no way shape or form healthy for you as it is almost always saturated with fat and salt.
This is just a fake video designed to go viral. There is no study, Im pretty sure these guys just wanted to make a funny video to make some money off
They should not of made "greens are gay" comment as they are portaiting that being gay is a bad thing. That doesnt settle right with me.. but judging
by the rest of the vid it was designed to push buttons to get viral.

Well its not the most healthy food, but people are excaberating the problem with their choices. If you eat fastfood a lot because for whatever reason
its your best option, dont have a soft drink most of the time, have water most of the time and that coke once in a while. You dont need the biggest
burgers on the menue every order either and you also shouldnt always eat the fries.
Sadly a small burger with a side order of Salad and a drink does not come in a menue although I guess you could get that salad with Chicken. But if
you live in a city like New York, Cologne or Berlin I am sure McD and BK arent your only choices for a quick chomp.
