McDonald's has never been on the list of healthiest anything. I would say that it's safe to say everyone knows McDonald's is not very healthy. McDonald's spends billions of dollars each year advertising their food, and it sells. However, some people abuse the cheap prices and delicious food.
In 2003, an unidentified man tried to sue Mcdonalds for making them fat. The judge of the case immediately dismissed the trial because of its unconvincing logic.
The plaintiff cited that McDonald's food was making him and many other people obese. Obese does not just mean a little out of shape, obese is when your body mass index is above 30kg/m2. That would be a 6 foot tall man weighting more than 225 pounds (would make them legally obese). The argument that eatingMcDonald's food made them obese, is logically incorrect. It fits into the logical fallacy of non-sequitar.
The conclusion the plaintiff made does not follow the premise. Just like saying because it rained, i forgot my lunch. Because i ate McDonald's, i got fat does not add up. Just because McDonald's food is unhealthy does not mean that eating it is the sole reason that a person might become fat.
This court case was made famous for its stupidity. The plaintiff obviously just wanted to make some money any way he could, but honestly his try was very weak. He presented no evidence and his statement was completely non-sequitar.
