Want To Know What Is In Fast Food, Lots Of Corn! : ChattahBox:

"Washington (ChattahBox) - According to a new study, a key ingredient in fast food is apparently corn!

The study focused on three main fast food chains in Boston, Baltimore, Denver, San Francisco, Detroit, as well as Los Angeles.

The study was led by A. Hope Jahren from the University of Hawaii, along with colleague Rebecca Kraft, and found the key ingredient to be corn.

Using a special technique to analyze the food, they found high levels of both carbon and nitrogen, which means corn
.
The corn is able to fatten the cattle in a very short period of time.

This could explain why fast food causes obesity at such a high rate.

Their findings have been published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences."
