Popular Food In America

In the United States the most favorite food is the cheeseburger. The average american consumes three cheeseburgers a week. thirteen billion is enough burgers to wrap around the earth 32 times and that’s how many Americans eat a year. Hamburgers and cheeseburgers are accounted for 71% for all beef commercially in america.  Considered a “high risk” food because of the poor health under which they are manufactured. The time process for making processed meats creates high bacteria counts and putrefaction of the meat which need to be treated. Putrefaction causes meat to turn green which is then dyed with red chemicals to appear fresh. Unless marked otherwise, hamburger will always contain red dyes. The beef industry is the largest user of antibiotics in the world to offset the dangerous bacteria housed in its meats. This is the growing resistance to antibiotics. When people in the United States eat cheeseburgers they are usually grilled, but some people stove cook them which isn’t that good. The best meat you can get is probably at slaughter house, because its fresh and tastes better. When people go to restaurants they usually order cheeseburgers, because they are good at restaurants. Some people don’t order the cheeseburger, because they don’t like eating that much.
