April 11, 2012: You may be surprised to find an outlet of the McDonald’s next to the hospital’s cafeteria. However, it’s the fact. About two dozen hospitals host McDonald’s restaurants that are dwelling within the hospital premises.
After knowing about this, an advocacy group known as Corporate Accountability International has sent a letter to each hospital hosting fast-food restaurant asking them to throw out these outlets. The group has asked the hospital authorities to stop fostering a food environment which promotes harmful diet and not healthy food habits.
