(TruthSeekerDaily) The overly processed chemicals that make up products fast food companies sell with the claim that it’s ‘food’, is a detriment to the health of all who consume it.
Regardless of the publicity, reports, scientific facts, etc that prove this food is harmful to one’s health, the conveince of consuming it for many on the go Americans, outweighs the risk it poses to the body. Many people have fooled themselves into feeling that the quick and easy meals couldn’t actually be deadly based partly on the fact that the FDA allows the business to continue to operate and peddle their fake food to consumers.
McDonald’s has reportedly spent 2.9 million dollars lobbying Washington to further their food propaganda. As you can see in the video posted below, the golden arches must have blinded a plethora of exploits the FDA who have turned their heads on facts and studies that prove the food should not be consumed. For instance, what would cause a hamburger to not mold or rot over a 14 year period?
In a desperate hail mary of P.R. damage control over the years, McDonald’s claims that it was simply the lack of moisture which caused their hamburger to mummify. However, what their public relations personnel fails to mention is their use of the following preservatives that keeps their food from rotting.
Ammonium sulfate is a chemical byproduct of steel-making and synthetic fiber production. It was the most common source of lawn fertilizer nitrogen until price increases starting in 2004 reduced its availability.
Bleached White Flour: It has been shown that alloxan is a byproduct of the flour bleaching process, the process they use to make flour look so “clean” and — well, white. No, they are technically not adding alloxan to the flour — although you will read this bit of misinformation on the Internet. But, they are doing chemical treatments to the grain that result in the formation of alloxan in the flour. Alloxan, or C4 H2O4N2, is a product of the decomposition of uric acid. It is a poison that is used to produce diabetes in healthy experimental animals (primarily rats and mice), so that researchers can then study diabetes “treatments” in the lab. Alloxan causes diabetes because it spins up enormous amounts of free radicals in pancreatic beta cells, thus destroying them.
High Fructose Corn Syrup contains contaminants including mercury that are not regulated or measured by the FDA.
Sodium Stearoyl Lactylate: possible side effect is food intolerance.
Azodicarbonamide (Banned in the EU, Singapore, and Australia) is used in the food industry as a food additive, a flour bleaching agent and improving agent. Azodicarbonamide actually relaxes the dough so that when it is divided in large-scale bakeries under pressure, it still retains a good character. It has been known to cause allergic reactions in those sensitive to other azo compounds, such as food dyes. The consumption of azodicarbonamide may also heighten an allergic reaction to other ingredients in a food. The principal use of azodicarbonamide is in the production of foamed plastics as an additive.
In the UK, the Health and Safety Executive has identified azodicarbonamide as a respiratory sensitizer (a possible cause of asthma) and has determined that these products should be labeled with the words “may cause sensitization by inhalation.”
Guar Gum is banned by the FDA in large amounts due to reports of the substance swelling and obstructing the intestines and esophagus.
Sorbic Acid: According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the chemical is a strong irritant and—in large enough quantities—has the potential to cause severe damage to the tissues of the eyes, skin and respiratory tract.

The bottom line is that none of these aforementioned chemicals were meant for consumption as they are man made in a lab. It’s not natural and as such does not correspond with the mechanisms in our body in a positive manner. Over time, these things add up and reek havoc on our system. These chemicals have been added to food to turn larger profits, without regard for human health. This message is imperative to get out to others in an effort to counter the false claims made by fast food companies and their cohorts.
