Hold that Whopper - a new report claims that 'plasticizers' and other industrial chemicals can be found in American fast food. Researchers at George Washington University studied items from several popular fast food chains - and found that 81% of them contained DnBP and DEHP - chemicals that multiple studies have linked to fertility issues. 86% of foods contained DEHT - a 'replacement plasticizer' with unknown health effects. Foods with meat - such as cheeseburgers or chicken nuggets, contained the highest levels of DEHT. Cheese pizza contained the lowest. How much fast food do you eat in a week? Will this report affect your eating habits, or will you keep on hitting the drive-thru?
