Chicken and fries offered by some chains have more artery-clogging trans fats when served in the U.S.
At a New York City McDonald’s, a large fries and chicken nuggets combo was found to contain 10.2 grams of trans fat, compared with 0.33 grams in Denmark and about 3 grams in Spain, Russia and the Czech Republic.
Why? Because it would cost a penny more per serving to switch to other, less lethal fats. The chains save money, diners get clogged arteries – and this happens more in the US than in other countries.
