First, here's the article:
In it, MarketWatch writer Emma Court tells us that fried chicken and bacon are the unhealthy part of the wrap. She completely ignores the white flour tortilla!
The complete insanity running around in peoples' modern heads about what is healthy and what is unhealthy is maddening to those who know better.
Pork and chicken are natural foods. They have been eaten by humans for thousands of years.
Frying them in oils such as coconut oil or bacon in its own fat is perfectly healthy. Modern oils on the other hand are a real problem.
That being said, animal fats are the kinds the body needs, such as palmitic acid and stearic acid, which Dr. Mary Enig has taught us are the favorite foods of the heart.
On the other hand, cheap white flour is nasty to the body. Cheap refined and rancid flours contain almost no beneficial nutrients. It acts just like sugar to the body. Refined flour contributes to lesions on arterial walls and thereby leads to plaque buildup and eventually blockages and even heart disease.
White flour contributes to cancer as it loves sugary foods. One of the most effective changes to diet if a person has cancer is to eliminate refined foods such as white sugar, high fructose corn syrup and white flour. These are the bane of modern fast foods, not the real bacon or chicken.
The backwards, upside-down and inside-out thinking that passes as healthy eating I can only call real foolishness.
When it comes to McDonalds, avoid eating the white flour bun or tortilla. Stick with what is natural like salads and real meats. Bring your own olive oil if you can, and salt your foods using real sea salt with trace minerals.
