The greatest food in human history?

An anonymous reader writes "Freakonomics strikes again. The NY Post writes, ""What is “the cheapest, most nutritious and bountiful food that has ever existed in human history” Hint: It has 390 calories. It contains 23g, or half a daily serving, of protein, plus 7% of daily fiber, 20% of daily calcium and so on. Also, you can get it in 14,000 locations in the US and it usually costs $1. Presenting one of the unsung wonders of modern life, the McDonald’s McDouble cheeseburger. The argument above was made by a commenter on the Freakonomics blog (with podcast) run by economics writer Stephen Dubner and professor Steven Leavitt, who co-wrote the million-selling books on the hidden side of everything." Freakonomics, "FWIW, McDonald’s has 34,000 restaurants in 118 countries, serving serving nearly 69 million a day. In the U.S., 85 percent of households are “food secure”; The Economist ranks the U.S. No. 1 in the world on this dimension.""

Old McD commercial: Big Mac, Fries, and a drink -you still get change back for your Dollar.

Going to give McDonald’s McDouble cheeseburger a try, could become a staple for me.
