How Far Can You Get From A McDonald’s

I admit that sometimes a McDonald’s burger is good, but I eat only a handful of them a year, mainly because it is about as far from beef that a beef patty could be.  I usually like cooking my own or if I have to eat out fast food, 5 guys is pretty solid chocie.  I found this map of all the McDonald’s in the USA (continental) and discovered that the farthest from one of these you can be is 145 miles!  This is in South Dakota and its kind of alarming at the density that these places have.  Over 50 million eat fast food every single day…..  let me say that again:  Over 50 MILLION people every single day!  This figure is 2 years old, so I can only imagine that it has gone up.

With around 350 Million people in the USA, that is 1 person in 7 eat fast food every day.

  1. That's one of the scariest things I've read in a very long time…that said, thanks for the post, maybe it'll wake a few people up! Personally I cook my own food and if I have to eat out, it's generally veggies…but that's just me!
