We all know that eating processed or fast foods is very harmful to our overall health. McDonalds Corporation, the world’s leading dealer of GMO’s, has suffered a major downturn in revenue in recent years thanks to a global awakening regarding the dangers of toxic, commercially processed food.
In this article, we will focus on a specific McDonalds food – french fries.
Research has shown that french fries are actually composed of 19 shocking ingredients. The staple side dish is a lab experiment in creating an item that looks and tastes like a potato product but is actually a chemically engineered concoction of GMOs, trans fats, chemical stabilizers, preservatives, wheat, milk, and beef derivatives, as well as poisonous additives derived from petroleum and silicone.
Grant Imahara, of Mythbusters fame, recently visited the McDonald’s fry factory to find out exactly what McDonald’s fries are made of. During the process, the Mythbusters man “reverse-engineered” McDonald’s fries and the results showed that they are made up of many harmful ingredients. The ingredients are as follows:
- Soybean oil
- Canola oil
- Hydrogenated oil
- Citric acid
- Hydrolyzed wheat
- Tertiary butyl hydroquinone
- Sodium acid pyrophosphate
- Natural beef flavor
- Hydrolyzed milk
- Hydrogenated soybean oil
Good thing you gave up on their fries a long time ago. If you haven’t, what are you waiting for? These ingredients are completely unhealthy that can wreak havoc on the body. Let’s take a closer look.
Tertiary butyl hydroquinone (THBQ)
It is a type of phenol used in the foods in order to prevent deterioration of food. It is also used in substances such as perfumes and bio-diesel.
Hydrogenated soybean oil
People who consume it on a regular basis can expect many, many unhealthy consequences. According to the Women’s Hospital in Boston and the study performed at the Harvard School of Public Health and the Brigham Young University, showed that at least 100,000 cardiac deaths in America every year could be prevented if people replaced trans fats with healthier nonhydrogenated polyunsaturated or life-giving mono-saturated oils.
A compound that is most generally used in hair conditioners, silly putty and in aquarium tank sealants. However, Dimethylpolysiloxane dealers also receive orders from McDonalds Corporation. This dangerous compound can even contain formaldehyde, a well-known toxic chemical that has been linked to cancer, allergies, brain damage, and autoimmune disorders.
According to an Associated Press review of the corporation’s regulatory filings, McDonalds closed over 700 stores last year and suffered an 11% reduction in revenue and 30% drop in profit. For corporations the size of McDonalds, operating on slim profit margins falls in a profit of 2 to 3 % can have enormous consequences. 30 percent? We are talking irreversible terminal decline, according to industry experts.
