I like doing this with larger groups of people but it is always fun to do when you see people sitting around talking about how bad and evil McDonalds is.
1. Get their attention
2. Ask everyone to raise their hands if they like McDonalds
This is where you will get a lot of people saying how "sick" they got from eating it and how grose the food is on and on...
3. Ask them to raise their hands if they think they can make a better hamburger than a McDonalds hamburger.
This is where you see everyone's hand go up
4. Then inform them that McDonalds is a multi billion dollar company that has makes over 3 billion a year serving 50 million daily.
5. Now ask them who here can form a company that make 1,000 dollars a day selling hamburgers that ______(insert descriptions you got in step 2)

My friend, the food we eat that is manufactured unless you are very sensitive to additives and the poison the put in it, you will not die.
What you will get is a life long of debilitating diseases and side effects that will affect you and specially your children, but don't worry big pharma will have you pump on drugs to make your life and those of your children more bearable.
Food no only feed the body but also nourish the soul but only when is food that have nutritional value no chemically enhanced.
Is common sense.
If you really want a treat, make two cookies out of blue playdoh and smear some white (Elmers) paper paste in between them to make a sandwich.

A true thing...
My then just-a-year-old son had been taking a nap when I smelled something terrible. I thought one of my (now-ex)wife's cats had taken a dump somewhere in the house but I couldn't find it for my damnedest. The only place I didn't check was the baby's room, since he was sleeping. After a while, I could hear the baby babbling to himself but didn't get him up right away; he was often content to just look out the window from his crib. When it was time to feed him, I was almost overwhelmed by the smell of feces the moment I opened the door. The baby had removed his diaper and was playing with it. Smeared on the walls, coated on the bars of the crib, caked on his hands and feet. And it was clear he had tried to eat it. He looked at me, proud as could be, and said, "Daddy!" for the first time.
The next day we went to McDonald's. I handed him a nugget. He took one bite but spit it out, saying, "Yuck!"
Take from that story what you will.
My humorous anecdote aside, what does it all mean? People are assuming these chemicals are bad for us but are they? If so, how much is bad? How much do you have to eat and for how long before your brain explodes or you turn into a zombie?

Wrap up our Big Mac leftovers and have them UPS'd to Ethiopia?
But I'm also not going to deprive myself of the food i want just because they're hungry, or because you tell me it's bad for me.
