Fast Food Burgers, Fries and Soda:  What You Are REALLY Consuming

by Gregg Prescott, M.S.

Did you ever wonder why fast food hamburgers never seem to taste like the ground beef you buy in the grocery store? The following may help to answer this question.

Where’s The Beef?

In a recent study published in the Annals of Diagnostic Pathology, it was determined that fast food hamburgers contain very little meat while the remaining ingredient may surprise you.

Water content by weight was rated as the most common ingredient while the meat content ranged anywhere from 2.1% to 14.8% by weight. Within the meat content (connective tissue), the study found blood vessels, peripheral nerve, adipose tissue, plant material, cartilage and bone.

Intracellular parasites (Sarcocystis) were found in 2 hamburgers.

The average median weight composition of the hamburgers contained only 12.1% meat while approximately half the weight was comprised of water.

17 Ingredients In McDonald’s French Fries

Similar to fast food hamburgers, did you ever wonder why fast food french fries don’t taste like home made french fries?

In another recent study, McDonald’s French Fries were found to contain 17 different ingredients so one must ask, what other ingredients outside of potatoes and oil is needed to make french fries?

According to the ingredients fact list on the McDonald’s website, their french fries contain the following:

Potatoes, canola oil, hydrogenated soybean oil, safflower oil, natural flavour (vegetable source), dextrose, sodium acid pyrophosphate (maintain colour), citric acid (preservative), dimethylpolysiloxane (antifoaming agent) and cooked in vegetable oil (Canola oil, corn oil, soybean oil, hydrogenated soybean oil with THBQ, citric acid and dimethylpolysiloxane) and salt (silicoaluminate, dextrose, potassium iodide).

Wash It All Down With Genetically Modified Aspartame

According to Beverage Digest, the 2nd most popular soda in the world is Diet Coke while the 7th and 8th most popular are Diet Pepsi and Diet Mountain Dew, respectively.

All of these diet soft drinks contain aspartame, which was banned by the FDA in 1980 after discovering that one of the main health effects from aspartame was brain tumors.

What makes the consumption of any aspartame product unbelievable is knowing where aspartame comes from: the fecal matter of genetically engineered E.coli bacteria.

Study: Fast Food Ice Contains More Bacteria Than Toilet Water

Even if you choose any beverage that contains ice, then you might be interested in this following study.

In a recent article, researchers took ice and toilet water samples from ten fast food outlets, including McDonald’s, KFC, Starbucks and Burger King and found higher levels of bacteria in the ice than in toilet water samples!

Samples from McDonalds, KFC and Burger King contained more than double the levels of bacteria that are expected to be seen in everyday drinking water.

As a reflection of the current recession, McDonald’s sales dropped in the United States, despite offering numerous value items on their menu which makes it an affordable meal. If you read between the lines, people are finally waking up to the literal crap they’re ingesting and are choosing healthier, non-GMO meals versus a cheap hunger fix through genetically modified fast food.
