25 Ingredients in McNuggets And 19, Not 17, Ingredients in McD Fries
29 Jan 2015
One would think that french fries could have 3 ingredients: potatoes, oil, and salt. But McD fries have 19 ingredients, their McNuggets 25 ingredients.

UK fries have fewer toxins than US fries
American children the world's fattest
Years after McDonald's in a lawsuit judgment paid 10 million dollars to a vegetarian coalition because the corporation had not revealed that the fries were preprocessed in sheep fat (lard or tallow) or cow fat (beef lard or beef tallow), it was still adding actual beef flavoring to fries.

After a news story that McDonald's fries had 17 ingredients, the Washington Post has reported there are actually 19 ingredients in the fries.

19 ingredients in McDonald’s french fries

There are 25 ingredients in the McNuggets.

In addition, fries in the United Kingdom have fewer toxins than fries in the US.

The longest trial at its time in British history... lasting 4 years... between McDonald's and London Greenpeace


"McNuggets Ingredients (not counting any sauce)
-Chicken breast—
-Water—Not much to say about that one.
-Modified corn starch—Corn starch is almost always genetically-modified. But that’s not what the “modified”
in “modified corn starch” refers to. It usually refers to chemically- or enzymatically-treated corn starch,
which can leave chemical residues behind. Additionally, it often contains monosodium glutamate (MSG),
which I’ll discuss further in a minute.
-Salt—That’s fairly straightforward.
-”Seasoning”—Seasoning contains yeast extract (that almost always
contains the neurotoxin MSG which has been linked to a whole host of diseases.
Read the excellent book Excitotoxins: The Taste that Kills by Russell
L. Blaylock, a neurosurgeon and MSG researcher, to learn more about the health problems linked to MSG),
more salt, wheat starch (a processed food that contains just the starchy part of the wheat,
“natural flavor” (more likelihood of toxic MSG), safflower oil, dextrose, citric acid, and rosemary.
-Safflower oil—Believed to be a healthier cooking oil, most safflower is unfortunately heated to high
temperatures long before it is ever used for cooking, causing it to be chemically-altered from the heat,
and a source of inflammation in the body when that is the case.
-Dextrose—a type of sugar.
-Citric acid—used as a preservative.
-”Natural extractives of rosemary”—this could be any number of ingredients found within rosemary, the health of
which is determined largely by the process of extraction and whether any chemicals are used in this process.
-Breaded with: water, wheat flower, yellow corn flower, modified corn starch, spices, salt, baking powder,
sodium aluminum phosphate, dextrose, wheat starch, corn starch, modified hydrogenated soybean oil
Yellow corn flower and modified corn starch—both of these ingredients are derived from corn which is now
almost 100% genetically-modified (GM). GM foods have been linked to sterility, allergies, infant mortality,
organ defects, and childhood diseases. Check out my article Top 20 Frankenfoods to Avoid for more information.
-”Spices”—This could be any number of ingredients. It often used by the food industry to disguise MSG."

No Cadaver Piece Is Healthy
29 Jan 2015
When a chicken has leukemia, the butcher industry hides the disease by calling it leukosis. Blanche Leonardo in the book Check That Chick documented the generation of cancer in children and adult humans eating cancerous chicken flesh.

Food poisoning from colon bacteria (hidden in the term ecoli), listeria, campylobacter, and hundreds of other organisms occurs.

The uric acid or trioxypurine in chicken flesh causes
plaque to line heart, brain and other arteries, and uric acid to crystallize in needle formation around the joints generating arthritis.

Ronald Reagan's administration doubled the speed of
the meat inspection lines in slaughterhouses.... mammals and birds whizzed by without being inspected for surface tumors. The invisible tumors in the bloodstream and internal organs were not inspected at all. Recently the USDA has further sped up the lines.
Conditions For Factory Farm Chickens

With the exception of California, US chicken cages are often 1 foot by 9 feet, with as many as 9 chickens jammed in, unable even to move their wings or turn around. Often the waste of chickens in the top cages dribbles or rains down on the birds below. Birds are often painfully debeaked so that they will not peck each other to death with the overcrowding. When there are electricity outages from storms or other accidents, the birds broil to death in their metal sheds in the summer or freeze to death in the winter. Tornados crush them as their cages look like smashed in accordions. Chickens have been bulldozed alive into graves after some tornados. Every egg represents an average 32 hours a chicken was in her tiny concentration camp. The baby chick males are often crushed alive into paste.
