Double Down = Double the risk

KFC's new sandwich "The Double Down" was launched yesterday in Canada.


It is two pieces of bacon and two pieces of cheese between two chicken breasts -either breaded and fried, or grilled.
There is no bread - so some are claiming that its healthy because there are no carbs from the bread. They are wrong - this is NOT healthy in any way.
The sand which has 30 grams of fat (half the daily recommended fat intake - and I can guarantee that this is not your healthy poly-unsaturated fats) and 1740mg of sodium (max daily intake should be 1500mg).
And no - the grilled chicken is not healthier.

Some people are ordering the sandwich because the commercials led to the feeling of "needing to man up".
Last time I checked, having a heart attack wasn't very manly.

Do your arteries a favor and don't eat this sandwich.
