McDonalds Chicken McNuggets: The Chicken Which Should Be Banned

Story at-a-glance -

  • McDonalds Chicken McNuggets is not a health food, but is highly processed and it is best avoided if you value your health
  • Half of the ingredients in McNuggets consist of corn derivatives, sugars, leavening agents, and completely synthetic ingredients, including dimethylpolysiloxane (an anti-foaming agent made from silicone) and tertiary butylhydroquinone (or TBHQ, a deadly chemical preservative)
  • Dimethylpolysiloxane, although typically listed as an “antioxidant,” is not a natural antioxidant but instead a synthetic chemical preservative found in many processed foods, varnishes, lacquers, and pesticides, among others
  • TBHQ can cause nausea, vomiting, delirium, and a number of other adverse effects
  • McDonalds and other fast food fare can do serious harm to your health, as the documentary by Morgan Spurlock “Super-Size Me” so powerfully illustrated; many of these foods don’t even decompose when left out for years, an indication that they contain more chemicals than “real food” ingredients, since real foods naturally break down over time
  • Your diet should consist of fresh, organic whole foods that are not genetically modified, are free of artificial ingredients and chemicals, and are grown/raised sustainably, keeping true to the laws of nature
