If it is for the carcinogenicity, it must be sought not in themselves any products in the technology industry. Even enemies of the Fast-food must recognize that establishments offering such food, methods of production are consistent with the latest technologies applied in food industry as a whole. It can not and it is a carcinogenicity. Rather, they can look at the prepared food at home – for example when using burnt oil. 

If you find that same oil is used endlessly in one restaurant, then you can really claim – has been shown that there is no way after a number of heating or stay longer after use does not appear carcinogenic.

Often blame the fast food restaurants that use additives that lead to tolerance and even addiction. Beginning of this review is still in the middle of last century, when in Europe appear first alerts from a food behavior, even received his own name – “disease of Chinese restaurants. 

In the preparation of Chinese food was then often used sodium glutamate, which impart a specific flavor of dishes.
