As if you needed yet another reason to steer clear of McCruelty foods … We know recipes can contain secret ingredients to give certain dishes an extra umph factor, but jeez Louise, some “special” ingredients should be left out of food altogether!
CNN recently reported that McDonald’s makes its Chicken McNuggets with the chemical preservative tertiary butylhydroquinone (tBHQ), a petroleum-based product that is also found in varnishes, lacquers, and resins—anybody getting hungry yet? Mix that in with a little dimethylpolysiloxane (an anti-foaming agent)—which is also found in Silly Putty (one of my favorite snacks *gag, puke*)—and you’re on your way to McNuggetville.
And if you’re not already disgusted with McD’s and their chemically enhanced foods, keep in mind that McD’s also uses an outdated method of slaughter for its chickens—these birds are routinely hung upside down in shackles, have their throats slit, and are then dumped into tanks of scalding-hot water, oftentimes while they are still alive and able to feel pain.
Well, I love Harry Potter, Percy Jackson, CSI, Criminal Minds, Doctor Who and comic books (I mean, my profile pic IS Damian Wayne and Bat-Cow...). I'm kind of spazzy and I tend to ramble... I'm also an obsessive perfectionist...heh heh...a science/tech nerd and a vegetarian.
I grew up in the United States.My mom is white.My father is Latino. I love to save animals,even spiders.So don't kill my spiders..I love dogs,pigs,all creatures that the world has made for you and me-to protect and love/and NOT to kill. I believe in love & adventure. I believe in you have to live life to learn,LOVE life LOVE life..
