These nasty ingredients are in your food

These nasty ingredients are in your food

They’re banned in other countries, of course…

How does it feel to know that chemicals that have been linked to harm to children’s brain growth, cancer and a plethora of other maladies, that have been banned in several countries, are widely used here in the United States? I hope it makes you want to storm the castle and at least demand some quality grain, like it does me.

It turns out that Burger King in the UK uses horse meat in their sandwiches. That’s pretty gross, but a horse really isn’t much different from a cow in terms of meat or ethics, is it? Given that the people who are grossed out by this are meat eaters, I would think that they’d be more grossed out if they knew that, say, cigarette filler is used in some milkshakes, or that the beloved McRib from McDonald’s is filled with GMOs and tons of chemicals, including a banned chemical found in freakin’ yoga mats.

If you want to get even more grossed out about the chicken nuggets, salads and other fast food items you eat, check out the link above. You’ll get to gross your friends out for weeks! Just wait until lunch time—especially if coworkers return to the office with little bags displaying the golden arches.
