CHICKEN McPOISON & OTHER FOOD PROSTITUTION©
Earlier, I wrote on the ubiquitous presence of monosodium glutamate in fast foods. MSG is unequivocally bad news for the brain. Now, we learn that McDonald's uses an artificial petroleum-based "antioxidant", tertiary butylhydroubiquinone (TBHQ) on chicken McNuggets and probably on its hamburgers. It retards spoilage – not that it keeps them fresh! Thanks to your FDA, this potentially toxic substance is widely used in the food industry. In animals, TBHQ has BEEN FOUND TO BE CARCINOGENIC. It also is associated with contact dermatitis and it damages DNA in bone marrow. And, in animals, it increases cell proliferation in the stomach – a precursor of cancer.
Just one more reason to avoid McDonald's and its clones, the Fast Junk Food industry!
Remember that in Australia KFC is called Colonel Chunders – chunders means vomit!

Chocolate Manufacturers of America – providing mostly non-nutritional junk chocolate, including Hershey, Nestle and Archer McDaniel, are propositioning the Fraud Drug Administration to allow virtually totally fake chocolate, without even any cocoa butter. It would allow them to pawn onto the gullible public milk, artificial sweeteners and trans fats with artificial chocolate flavoring – the ultimate non-food. (NewsWithViews.com – May 4, 2007)
Over 30 years ago Ross Hume Hall emphasized in his terrific book, FOOD FOR NOUGHT, the prevalence of truly artificial chemical soup passed off as "food" such as artificial tomato sauce composed of sugar, modified corn starch, salt, artificial flavoring and artificial coloring. HMM.HMM GOOD! The Medical-Industrial complex, which is no better than the Military-Industrial complex – and indeed has many of the same pimps in charge – has polluted our food supply with a wide variety of non-foods including:
- White "enriched" flour – NO food value
- White sugar – no food value
- Margarine – no food value
- "Flavored" everything – no food value
- Transfats – no food value
- Substitute – no food value
- Artificial – need I say more?
- Hydrogenated – no food value
- Partially – no food value
- Hardened – no food value
- Sodium lauryl sulphate – no food value
- Monosodium glutamate – no food value
- Aspartame – no food value
- TBHQ – NO FOOD VALUE
- Etc., etc., etc.
Over 60% of the "food" sold in grocery stores and probably 90% of the junk fast food industry's contribution to illness is NOT FOOD.
EATER BEWARE!! OR BE AWARE! Your life and health are your responsibility. Read the labels and avoid junk.
