Is Subway good for you?

After skimming this thread, I can definitively say that Subway definitively does screw up your testosterone:estrogen ratio-whether you eat it or not!
There is a whole lot of roid raging and PMS'ing going on here.
Seriously, we are talking about a freaking fast food joint--not abortion, global warming, or world peace.
It never ceases to amaze me how much passion we can put into truly pointless issues.
Not to mention the fact that it is flawed to view a restaurant or a food as "healthy" in toto.
There are no "healthy" or "unhealthy" foods, but that is a separate debate

Okay. Lets get our sticks removed from our asses. If your thinking of fast food places to eat chances are subway isn't your only one.
Lets throw that out the window. Take a look at your grocery list and all of the ingredients in all of your food. Chances are if you shop at Walmart and buy great value or another genetic store's brand your putting your body at risk.
My philosophy is the 90/10 mentality. 90% best effort nutrition and 10 % who gives a ****. If I want subway I don't eat it every day I eat it maybe once a MONTH !
Pretty much all fast food is worse for your body than an MRI but you can't live in fear.
Just my. 02 cents.

I think the debate was wether or not it was healthy . The answer is no. Is it better for you then McDonalds yes.

Not only is it not healthy, but the sandwiches taste mediocre at best and they never put enough meat on them, unless you ask for extra meat and then they charge you extra. I would rather just order a "fatty" sub with fries from a local sub place. It wouldn't be the healthiest choice, but it would be better than subway. At least you would get a decent amount of meat.

This being said I just drank beer on the lake all day and drunk crushed a 12 piece family meal that was all thighs, 6 biscuits covered in honey, large sweet tea, cole slaw, and mashed potatoes and gravy, and one fried peach pie. Now that is the pinnacle of health

By there being no "healthy" or "unhealthy foods" I mean that "healthiness" is not some quality that magically attaches to food itself. A food's (or food purveyor's) "healthyness" is a relative concept and must be considered relative to one's overall diet.
To view foods as dichotomously healthy or unhealthy is painfully simplistic and unhelpful.
But what do I know, I am just another "skinny douche"

Food definitely is healthy or not healthy. A candy bar doesn't become healthy because it is relative to something else. It is unhealthy period. Health is not a relative thing.
I get what you are saying if you mean that something can be healthier in a relation to another option. For example, someone who only eats mcdonald's and then steps it up to Subway is making a healthier decision. However, that still doesn't make the subway healthy because it is better than mcdonalds. At the end of the day they are both crap. One just isn't quite as ****ty as the other.
A solid turd is better than projectile runs from and upset stomach. But at the end of the day, they are both still ****

One needs to evaluate the entire diet.
If someone eats fast food regularly-regardless if the source, their diet is highly likely to be less healthy than someone attempting to make more informed choices with meals prepared at home/ahead of time.
I simply think that evaluating single foods or even classes of foods on the healthy/unhealthy dichotomy is rather useless and overly simplistic.

If your BMR is 2000 calories and you eat 1500 calories a day in twinkies you will lose a pound a week. Same as the moron obese idiot from those subway adds. Chummy buttons lost all that weight eating subway but he just looks like a less fat version of himself. He could have got the same results eating clean foods and hitting the gym. He would actually resemble a man and not false leading the majority of this fat ass nation into thinking that crap will help you lose weight.

Azodicarbonamide as used in plastics, synthetic leather .The principal use of azodicarbonamide is in the production of foamed plastics as an additive. The thermal decomposition of azodicarbonamide results in the evolution of nitrogen, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, and ammonia gases, which are trapped in the polymer as bubbles to form a foamed article.
