Unhealthy Fast Food: What\'s In Those Nuggets?

Americans love fried foods! And they really love chicken, rolled in a mix of milk and egg, and rolled around in flour and spices. Once coated, the chicken is put in hot oil until the chicken pieces are crispy and brown. Sounds good right? But, would you be surprised to know that what this food is, from a major fast food chain, is unhealthy fast food? And do you know why? Because of what’s actually in the ingredient list.

Let me tell you why this is an unhealthy fast food! Would you like to know that your chicken nuggets have a bit of dimethylpolysiloxane in them? Do you know what that is? It is an anti foaming agent that has silicone in it. It is used in cosmetics and Silly Putty. Now how about a spoonful of butylhydroquinone. This is a chemical preservative that is like butane lighter fluid. A little bit of this stuff can cause delirium, nausea, and ringing in the ears. This information comes from the consumer’s dictionary of food additives. A larger amount of this stuff can actually kill you!

Add about thirteen different corn developed ingredients and you still don’t have the twenty other ingredients that are still yet to be named in this chicken nugget meal. Lets also throw in mashed chicken skin and mechanically reclaimed chicken meat as the main ingredient. So far, would you eat anything that sounds like this? But, unfortunately millions of Americans eat the ingredients in these nuggets, which the unhealthy fast food chain claims are made with white chicken meat in a crispy tempura batter. The truth is chicken, and crappy quality at that, is only fifty percent of the overall ingredient list.

The other fifty percent is from derivatives of corn, sugar, and synthetic ingredients. These nuggets have never been near a farm or field! It is more likely that they come from a petroleum plant! Yikes! Are you still hungry for these unhealthy fast food “so called” chicken nuggets?

In 2003 a federal judge called the chicken nuggets Frankenuggets because of the ingredients unknown to the average consumer. They are more like a chemistry set than what is considered a food item. And the worst thing is that these shameless unhealthy fast food companies market these detestable foods to children who are taken by their eatable size and shape.

If you take the time to go to the websites of these fast food giants and investigate what is in the ingredient list, you will find their are many more ingredients than just chicken, flour, egg, and the oil that you would use at home to create this meal.

Sure, you are busy, you are involved in so many things, you are tired, and driving home you see the bright beacon of the unhealthy fast food chain. So, you drive through, and a few minutes later you are devouring an inexpensive meal. But, don’t kid yourself! What is the actual true cost of unhealthy fast food? It’s not from your wallet but from your body and the future health of it. Years down the road all those toxins, that your body stored away, will come back in the form of disease. Could it actually shorten your years on earth? It depends on how much you eat it!

You can rid yourself of this fast food habit by knowing what is in the foods you are eating! Just as I hope you read ingredient labels in grocery stores, you should check the fast food chain’s websites for their ingredient list. You are better off planning your healthy meals ahead of time and carrying healthy foods like nuts and fruit to keep your blood sugar stable. Franz wants you to convince yourself that these unhealthy fast food chains are the most disgusting type of food on the planet, and that you would not want to feed yourself, or your loved ones, any of this garbage!
