Your Daily Horror Moment: Here's What a Big Mac Does to Your Body

Eat at your own risk.

A new infographic claims that within the first 10 minutes of chowing down on a Big Mac, your blood sugar is raised to "abnormally high" levels, and the calories make you feel a bit high and dreamy and like you're on the best coke rush of your life, before you come crashing down with all of the thirst after half an hour.

The sodium in a Big Mac (U.K. burgers have 2.3 grams of salt in each one) makes your poor kidneys work harder to chuck out the salt, and thus your heart has to beat harder to keep your blood pumping. You'll get high blood pressure, and news that comes as a shock to absolutely nobody, too many Big Macs might make you have a stroke.

Once you hit the 40-minute mark, you've lost control of your blood sugar and are having an insulin and hunger spike.
