Here’s Why 43 of 55 McDonald’s Outlets in Delhi Are Shutting Down Today

Several McDonald’s franchises in Delhi, India, are closing today in a dispute over their failure to update mandatory regulatory health licenses, The Economic Times reports. Of 55 stores, 43 will shut down, putting 1,700 people out of work. Analysts speculated that even if the closures are temporary, it might be enough to seal the chain’s downward slide in the country.

It’s interesting that McDonald’s is losing its foothold in India at the same time it’s trying to re-establish its brand in America. Last year, following declining sales and the appointment of a new CEO, the company began working on improving its nutritional image. Removing high-fructose corn syrup and antibiotics important to human medicine, and adding breakfast to their all-day menu, were some of the planned changes. Even so, the foods are still highly processed and high in carbohydrates that can contribute to a decline in your health.

The fact is this type of diet exponentially increases your risk of obesity and diabetes, is loaded with dangerous additives like trans fats and lacks the nutrients your body needs. About 2 percent of the calories in these foods come from added sugars. The dangers of eating too much added sugar have been well-established, and have even become officially recognized, as research shows that as much as 40 percent of American healthcare expenditures are for diseases directly related to the overconsumption of sugar.

With obesity and its related diseases such as cancer and diabetes now a worldwide epidemic, the key to this is to stop eating fast food and look the other way when these restaurants close. Eating real food that is fresh, whole and organically grown is within your power: Replace refined carbs with fresh fruits and vegetables, healthy fats and moderate amounts of protein. And, optimize your gut health with fermented foods and fiber.
