Prognosis Grim for McDonald's Restaurants in Hospitals



No hospital wants to have the distinction of being the last in the United States to house a McDonald's. With or without the involvement of a public advocacy group, it's likely that within 10 years the burger behemoth will have no hospital-based restaurants.

Having a McDonalds on campus where sick people visit permits them to bring their health promotion "mind set" to their choosing the most healthy food sold there. So, it is an opportunity for practicing healthy choices. Bring on more fast food outlets to hospital campuses.

Seriously, this group should look into what the schools are feeding our kids. 22 hospital out of 5,500 in the US has a McDonalds. But our kids get 15-30 meals a day at school. That is where the problem is.

The obese are the obvious health problems.... in the last week I have dealt with drug use, anorexia, bulemia, liver failure and COPD and every person was of "normal or under weight". If placed in a line up, Dr. Cosgrove, Cleveland Clinic, would chose them first? Are the obese the first group to be openly hated (legally) in our society?
