Before you head off to your favorite fast food restaurant, you may want to take a look at this article. Did you know that there is a high chance you will be eating crushed beetles and duckfeathers with your fast food burger?
You’ll Never Eat McDonald’s Again After Reading These 10 Horrifying Facts

Here are some of the most disgusting additives you are eating when you “treat” yourself to a MacDonalds. 1.) Ammonium Sulfate – This is used to mass-produce bread, it is also used to fertilizer soil and kill bugs and more commonly used in strong household cleaning products. Unbelievably, the FDA has deemed it safe at the low levels which are found in food products, but the issue has been raised as to effects on people who eat bread daily. Ammonium sulphate has been linked with irritation to the gastrointestinal tract causing diarrhea and nausea. 2. Silicone Oil – Chicken McNuggets are full of dimethylpolysiloxane, a silicone oil that is often used to make contact lenses and other medical items. Dimethylpolysiloxane is also an anti-foaming agent. 3. TBHQ – You can find this additive in 18 McDonald’s menu items. TBHQ, is ususally listed as an “antioxidant,” what it doesn’t state is that it is a SYNTHETIC chemical with antioxidant properties and NOT a natural antioxidant. The chemical stops oxidation of fats and oils which helps to prolong the shelf life of processed foods. It is used in processed foods of all kinds, but it is also found in varnishes, lacquers and pesticide products. It is also used in cosmetics and perfumes to reduce the evaporation rate and improve stability. It is a chemical preservative so deadly that just five grams can kill you, but don’t panic, the FDA says it’s generally regarded as safe (GRAS).
4. Cysteine-L – Fast food restaurants use Cysteine-L, it is an amino acid derived from human hair, duck feathers and hog hair and is used to flavor their meat and soften their breads and pastries. This is an amino acid which also shortens the baking time of mass produced bread. This is mostly produced in China by dissolving the hair or down in acid and sent around the world as a bread softener.
5. Prescription Drugs -Researchers from Johns Hopkins University tested feathers from farmed raised chickens and found some interesting facts. Anti-depressants as well as otherprescription drugs are added to chicken feed for fast food “poultry”. Basically, the chickens are raised on a steady diet of prescription, over-the-counter and banned drugs.
6. Propylene Glycol -Propylene glycol is a chemical compound that can be found in anti-freeze, e-cigarettes and fast food.
7. Carminic Acid – derivived from Cochineal beetles, Carminic acid is used to dye foods, especially meats, red.
8. Dimethylpolysiloxane - This is found in almost all fried fast food menus and it can be also found in contact lenses, silly putty, cosmetics, shampoo and conditioners, polishes, heat resistant tiles to name a few!
9. Silicon Dioxide - This usually added to processed beef and chicken to prevent clumping and is listed ingredient for chili from Wendy’s and Taco Bell. Experts suggest that it isn’t harmful for consumption, but it’s interesting to know that the ingredient keeping chili meat nice and non-caking is also the primary component of diatomaceous earth, commonly used as a natural insecticide.
9. Cellulose – ~This is processed wood pulp and is found in nearly every fast food menu item. It is used in proactically everything ranging from cheese to salad dressing, from muffins to strawberry syrup. Food processors use it to thicken and stabilize foods, replace fat and increase fiber content. It also lowers the cost due to minimizing on ingredients such as oil or flour. Powdered cellulose is produced by cooking virgin wood pulp in chemicals to separate the cellulose which is then purified. Modified versions require extra processing, such as exposure to acid to break down the fiber further. Here are just a few of the fast food restaurants that include cellulose in their foods: McDonald’s, Arby’s, Jack in the Box, KFC, Pizza Hut, Sonic, Taco Bell and Wendy’s.

  1. Total B.S.

    Here we go;

    *Ammonium Sulfate is harmless and approved by both the US and the EU. In order to get stomach upset from it, you'd have to consume enough bread to feed a small city.
    *Dimethylpolysiloxane is inert and harmless. In fact it's one of the main ingredients in Simethicone, commonly given to babies and adults to help with gas discomfort. BTW, it's only found in trace amounts in McNuggets.
    *L- Cysteine, (not Cysteine-L) is a semi-essential amino acid synthesized by your liver which also has been linked to slowing ageing and reducing the toxic effects of alcohol consumption. Nutritionists suggest adding it to your diet. smile emoticon
    *TBHQ is a food antioxidant. In order to be harmful you'd have to consume massive quantities over a long period to harm yourself. (Not possible in the levels fast food restaurants use it.
    *Drugs - McDonald's decided two months ago to ban the use of antibiotic laced chicken.
    *Propylene Glycol is NOT used in McDonald's food, but Propylene Glycol Alginate is. There's a big difference between the two. Propylene Glycol Alginate is a common food additive derived from kelp and is used as an emulsifier, stabilizer, and thickener. (They can't even get the names right!)
    *Carminic Acid? That's simply a lie.
    *Silicon Dioxide - Non-toxic when eaten. Further, Diatomaceous Earth is the fossilized remains of diatoms. Food grade which is used everywhere actually has health benefits and is completely safe unless inhaled. Yes, it is used to fight insects, but it is not a toxin. The tiny crystals cut the hard exoskeletons of insects and eventually kills them. Totally harmless to us.
    *Cellulose is the main component of plant cell walls and is found in everything from fast food to organic foods. It is simply a plant fiber you can't avoid eating and it is absolutely safe. Don't let the word "acid" scare you. Acetylsalicylic acid
    is naturally occurring and has cured trillions of headaches and L-ascorbic acid, Amino acids L-leucine, L-isoleucine, L-lysine, L-methionine, L-phenylalanine, L-threonine, L-tryptophan, L-valine are unconditionally essential to life.

    Stop being sheeple and educate yourselves so others can't take advantage of you and feed you lies.
