Pink slime or no, McDonald's is bad for you. And collectively, our shit ass food is leading us to an obesity epidemic. People have the right to eat disgusting food if they want to. They also have a right to know exactly what they're eating.
I think it's a little excessive to simply say McDonalds is bad for you. There are plenty of healthy options and food that isn't processed to hell and back. The problem arises when people make McDonalds a frequent part of their routine diet, or gorge themselves on 8000 calories worth of McD's at one sitting. People with that behavior are what's leading us to an obesity epidemic. McD's is just their convenient cheap poison of choice. If we banned McD's, they'd simply take their obesity problem across the street to BK or Wendy's.
