In brief: It Depends

No one answer fits everyone here.
It depends on the health of your cardiovascular system before during and after eating fast foods laden with saturated fats, excessive calories and sugars wh ich can contribute to pre- diabetes or diabetes and thus significanty increase your risk of heart disease and heart attack. Always ask to see the nutritional information at any fast food resturant.

In brief: Over time dangerous

Trans fats are found in many fast foods, including french fries, fried chicken, fried fish sandwiches, biscuits, and fried apple and other pie desserts.
Trans fats triple the risk of heart disease. It increases cholesterol and decrease the good cholesterol so body becomes highly inflammed which leads eventually to blockages in arteries causing heart attack.
