You want that polyfluoroalkyl super-sized?

Look, I know you’re not perfect. The food stylists employed by McDonalds, Burger King and Taco Bell earn every last dime they’re paid. The food looks delicious. I get it.

But I’ve got one more reason to stay away from it. You already know it’s made with yucky stuff that does yucky things to your body and makes you look and feel yucky.

It gets worse.

It turns out even the wrappers are bad for you. You see, they contain polyfluoroalkyl chemicals. No, that’s not the top secret ingredient in the Whopper you were dreaming of. It’s what seeps into your food from the wrappers. Nice,huh? PFCs, as they’re called, build up in your body, affect your liver and raises your cholesterol. Oh, and they cause low birth weights among babies born to mom’s exposed to them. On the up side though, you usually get fries with them.

My point is this: pack your own lunch!!! There are plenty of healthy container options out there. Start at greendepot.com for green and adorable food storage.

And for goodness sake, stay away from the drive-thru.
