I have a somewhat different take on the McDonald's fries thing. The problem began, in earnest, when they buckled to pressure about saturated fats in their fries (from the beef fat used in the oil blend.)

Beef fat is something which human bodies can process in a fairly natural way. Once the tallow was deemed too scary for American consumption, then they started adding the 'natural flavors.' If we hadn't been so scared of fats, we'd be eating much more ACTUALLY natural fries today.

My favorite things to fry 'frites' in: goose fat or fat that surrounds a veal calf's kidney. (And I've never had fries that taste better than mine!) Organic, naturally-grown potatoes also make a huge difference.

Let's eat more fats, more cream, more butter, and stop putting the synthetics into our bodies. To do this requires not just an end to reliance on artificial substitutes, but an end of the fear of fats.
