Recently, a study made waves when it revealed fast #food #chicken nuggets are a whole lot less chicken #meat and much more “other” in construction. But the research shouldn’t come as a surprise. The #fastfood industry is able to offer gut-busting meals at rock-bottom prices and you better believe it isn’t because they are cutting into their profits. It’s because they are using cheap, and sometimes #toxic ingredients.
The latest study came from some the University of #Mississippi Medical Center. Roughly 40/50% is dead flesh. What made up the rest of the nuggets? Bones, blood vessels, connective tissue, nerves, and fat—“the stuff that usually ends up in #dog food,” as #NPR so aptly put it. What has happened is that some companies have chosen to use an artificial mixture of chicken parts rather than low-fat chicken white meat, batter it up and fry it and still call it chicken.
How else could these giant corporations afford to sell consumers double cheeseburgers for only $1? These “burgers” are often a mixture of meat, fat, bone, and connective tissue along with ammonium hydroxide (pink slime). You may even find some MSG or autolyzed yeast extract along with dimethylpolysiloxane, a silicone product used in breast implants and silly putty. What’s more, the burgers could be as little as 2% actual meat.
So you see, the “value” menu is not what it’s cracked up to be. These food makers would never cut into their bottom line to serve you more affordable food. On the contrary, they’ll just swap out real food for cheap and barely-edible ingredients.
Anyone eating blood and flesh has been steered down the wrong path. Eat an alkaline diet of plant based nutrition and educate yourself on what food really is. The longevity diet also heals and boosts immunity. Stop relying on corporate convenience and be a human being. Please. For your own body and mind.
