Do Fat Children Prefer McDonald's (MCD)?

A little study done by some doctors and scientists and published in Archives of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine shows that most children prefer food wrapped in paper with the McDonald’s (MCD) logo.

According to The New York Times "almost 77 percent, for example, thought that McDonald’s french fries served in a McDonald’s bag tasted better, compared with 13 percent who liked the fries in a plain white bag."

But some of the academicians involved were troubled by the results. “The best response the fast-food industry could make to this information,” Dr. Thomas N. Robinson, the head researcher said, “is to alter their menus to include a majority of healthful foods instead of encouraging consumption of high-fat, high-calorie foods.” McDonald’s responded that it already sells items like salads.

But, researchers appear to believe that the world’s largest fast-food company just wants to make kids fat.
