Some items are MUCH unhealthier than others
McDonald's Breakfast Menu

The McDonald's Big Breakfast is, in short, really bad for you.

The McDonald’s menu is full of items both healthy and unhealthy, and nowhere is that disparity more glaringly obvious than their breakfast menu. Everyone looks for something different for their first meal of the day, and whether it’s a fruit parfait or a big plate of pancakes and eggs, McDonald’s delivers. But don’t think for one minute that just because it’s breakfast doesn’t mean it’s not that bad for you.

*This one is the worst offender, but all of the Big Breakfasts (which contain scrambled eggs, sausage, hashbrowns, and biscuits of varying sizes) are unhealthier than all of the other breakfast options, and are, in fact, the unhealthiest items on the whole menu).
