Today I heard a terrible news that a man had tried to eat KFC foods only for 3 months,but when he had insisted on 1 week,his weight increased.And when he insisted on 3 weeks, his hepatic function had descended.The doctor adviced him not to eat the foods any more.However he wanted to insist on.Unfortunately ,he died of eating these foods.aha,I didn't know whether it is true,but I think I is unhealthy to eat the KFC or Macdonald's food for a long time or eat too much? Do you think so?

absolutely not because fast foods have lots of spices that are synthetically made and are obviously do bring risks to health. please take time to read the article below which i got from an excerpt: Why Fast Food is Dangerous To Your Health Fast food success has drawn much attention to the industry and the food itself. Animal rights advocates and health buffs alike criticize fast food on its effect on the health of its customers and the health of the globe. Not only is fast food proven to be bad for the health because of its high fat content and the probable health hazards fast food chains are prone to, but also its effect on employment and agricultural concerns. Fast food = Bad Eating Habits Fast food affinity is equated with bad eating habits. A typical meal from a fast food restaurant, say a serving of fries and a cheeseburger, amount to about 1,000 calories. This is about half of the recommended dietary allowance. This is mainly because of the large portions that fast foods are accustomed to serving. The tendency is for people to enlarge their appetites by eating beyond their limit, because of being afraid for the food to go to waste. Fast food is everywhere. It is available from main commercial blocks to gas service stations. In short, it is available and accessible. This partnered with the biological propensity towards food high in fat and sugar, leads to widespread obesity.

For sure, it is unhealthy and not advisable at all. Excess of cheese and processed foods add upto the fat in the body besides causing various other diseases. I understand that there is a lot of GM food items )Genetically Modified) used in these fast food joints which is highly dangerous in the long run.

Sure!It is healthy but for the purses of the owners of KFC and Mcdonald.No doubt fast foods are not to be included in one's regular diet.It can result in fatal and has a proof as you have told.This could be a lesson for the younger generation who wants to eat more fast foods and for worse appreciate it.

Hi snowlove08, They are always claimed to be junk food. Doctors and nutritionists often warn us not to eat those. However, most people like deep fried food, burgers and soft drinks. They are all harmful to kidney and even liver. It causes heart attack, too, as they are usually greasy, high calories. I think those food are not suitable to treat as our daily meals. We can have them once a month or two month. It won't be too harmful, provided that our other meals are healthy. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! agonyaunt69 (6:35pm 24 Dec 2009, Hong Kong time)

Fast food never a healthy food. Is called junks. It will make you full but the nutrition is not enough. Fast foods usually are fried foods. Fried food never has enough good to overcome the bad. The negative part will be more and is high risk to get cancer because of oily food. Please beware. Sincerely advise from me. Merry Christmas.

Hi there... All fastfood gives unhealthy food. It contains high amount of MSG (monosodium glutamate), whish is really bad for the health. Aside from MSG, it foods from fastfood are high in cholesterol, which is so unhealthy and makes one increase weight in a short period of time.

It is definitely unhealthy to eat Mazdonalds, KFC or any other fast food for that reason on a regular basis. You should watch the documentary Supersize Me it is about a guy who eats nothing but Mcdonalds for I think an entire month if im not mistaken. Pretty much the same thing happens he gains weight, his hepatic function decreases aswell as becoming generally lethargic.
