MedicalConspiracies- Anti-foaming agent found in Chicken McNuggets

Anti-foaming agent found in Chicken McNuggets

(NaturalNews) Ever wonder what's really found in Chicken McNuggets? Some of the
ingredients, it turns out, seem to belong more to an industrial factory of some
kind, not a food retailer. According to the McDonald's Corporation, its famous
Chicken McNuggets are made with ingredients including autolyzed yeast extract
(which contain free glutamate, similar to MSG), sodium phosphates and sodium
aluminum phosphate. But that's not the freaky part. According to McDonald's own
website, Chicken McNuggets are also made with "hydrogenated soybean oil with
TBHQ and citric acid added to preserve freshness" and "Dimethylpolysiloxane
added as an antifoaming agent." (http://nutrition.mcdonalds.com/nutr...)

At least two of these ingredients are artificially synthesized industrial
. TBHQ, a petroleum derivative, is used as a stabilizer in perfumes,
resins, varnishes and oil field chemicals. Laboratory studies have linked it to
stomach tumors. "At higher doses, it has some negative health effects on lab
animals, such as producing precursors to stomach tumors and damage to DNA. A
number of studies have shown that prolonged exposure to high doses of TBHQ may
be carcinogenic, especially for stomach tumors."

Dimethylpolysiloxane, a type of silicone, is used in caulks and sealants, as a
filler for breast implants, and as key ingredient in Silly Putty. Says

"PDMS is also used as a component in silicone grease and other silicone based
lubricants, as well as in defoaming agents, mold release agents, damping
fluids, heat transfer fluids, polishes, cosmetics, hair conditioners and other
applications. PDMS has also been used as a filler fluid in breast implants,
although this practice has decreased somewhat, due to safety concerns. PDMS is
used variously in the cosmetic and consumer product industry as well. For
example, PDMS can be used in the treatment of head lice..."

Not that the other ingredients are any better. Because cotton is not regulated
as a food crop, cottonseed oil may contain chemical pesticides that are banned
in food production. It is also almost always genetically modified. Hydrogenated
oils, of course, typically contain trans fats, the artificially produced fats
that are unusable by the body and that studies have linked to a number of
detrimental health problems. And autolyzed yeast extract is a chemical
taste-enhancing ingredient containing free glutamate that manufacturers use as
a friendlier-looking replacement for MSG.

And what about the chicken in Chicken McNuggets? It's factory-farmed chicken,
not free-range chicken. So it's the kind of chicken that's typically treated
with vaccines and hormones while being fed conventional feed products that are
medicated with pharmaceuticals and grown with pesticides.

Yum!! Don't forget to ask for extra dipping sauce. We haven't even talked about
what you'll find in there...
