How does crunchy, crushed beetles sound for lunch? Mashed up duck feathers? Not so good? Well, the next time you grab a quick lunch at McDonalds that is just what you might get. And those aren’t even the most disgusting things you can find lurking in your burger and fries. Read on to find out the top 10 reasons you’ll never ever want to get at McDonalds again.
1. Ammonium Sulfate
This chemical is used as a fertilizer, insect killer, and as a preservative in bread. In large does it can cause diarrhea and vomiting.
2. Silicon Oil
Silicon Oil is used to make contact lenses – oh and it’s in your 10 piece chicken nuggets.
Listed as an antioxidant, this synthetic chemical is also “additive 18” on McDonalds’ menu.
This is an amino acid derived from duck feathers, hog hair, and human hair and is used as a meat flavoring and bread softener. Most Cysteine-L is made in China.
5. Prescription Drugs
According to research conducted at John Hopkins University, the chicken meat making its way to McDonalds was raised using prescription drugs, including growth hormone and even antidepressants.
6. Propylene Gylcol
This chemical is used in anti-freeze and in McDonald’s fast food.
7. Carminic Acid
This is a dye derived from the Cochineal beetle and is used to dye foods the color red, especially meat.
Used to make silly putty, heat resistant tile, and shampoos and conditioners, this chemical is found in virtually all fast food.
9. Silicon Dioxide
Added to processed meats like chicken and beef, this ingredient is on nearly every fast food menu. It is used primarily to prevent meats from clumping. This is also the main ingredient in natural insecticide diatomaceous earth.
It’s used in cheese, salads, muffins, and syrup, for example. It’s main purpose is to thicken foods by replacing fat and increasing fiber at the same time. It’s used frequently by fast food giants like McDonalds, Jack in the Box, and KFC, for example, because it saves money by allowing the restaurants to scale back on such ingredients as oil and flour.
So the next time you want to treat yourself to McDonalds or other fast food, think twice about exactly what you’re putting in your body – food flavored chemicals.
