Yes, KFC Has Long Way to Go, But…

Some of you guys seemed annoyed with me for saying anything nice about KFC (its executives have just agreed to use a healthier, trans-fat-free frying oil). I don’t eat Kentucky Fried Chicken, but some 736 millions chickens are sold at their franchised stores annually.

Yep, they’ve got a long way to go on the MSG, skipping the antibiotics and hormones, and raising/slaughtering their chickens humanely, etc. But shifting to a healthier frying oil is a terrific advance! We must rejoice in their enlightened corporate leadership. If we stay polarized “against” and treat the company’s executives like our sworn enemies, no further progress will be made. We should write letters of thanks since the health of those who do eat the product is also of serious concern to us. Then we can work to convince them that a clientele awaits a healthier, humanely-raised bird. God willing, the stock price of Whole Foods may one day convince them.

live to eat dont eat to live learn to cook, know what your eating, don’t support the pasteurized food service work force and the pasteurization of the rest of society by entering the coral for lunch break. Pasteurization of people(and milk) has been the number one destructive force of cultures around the world. There are far greater reasons to do what is right than for your health… it is just a natural benefit.

I was working the other day at Wendys and some guy asked if our fries had trans fat in them…dude, I saw this guy and realised that this guy has a lot more to worry abou then worrying about trans fat. He was really huge!! He shouldn’t even be eating fries, period, he should have went for a side salad or something!

Amy,This is a great blog – I respect that you are looking at the big picture. I was wondering if you’d also be willing to link to when you mention their questionable slaughter practices as many people might not be familiar with the way they treat chickens. Thanks for your time – joel
