im sure there is a lot more to it than just this

i know its just the tip of the iceberg

but they be putting in allllll kinds of fucking chemicals in food, that have almost zero food uses according to wiki.

amazing

cottonseed oil is apperently really bad for u too, its what they use for their fries and is used for most chips as well

 

 

 

happy eating

on my way home today I was going to go grab some groceries from Safeway and they were closed because of the holiday and was forced to eat McD's for dinner.

Now I feel like shit.

 

I heard something about how in the first Iraq war the American bodies decomposed a lot slower because of all the preservatives in the N. American diet vs the Iraqi diet, and after reading some of those ingredient lists, i believe it

another thing that theyre not really pointing out here is that when it reads "glucose/fuctose", it is not specified that it is "high fructose corn syrup". witch basically lives in your fat cells and your body/liver has no humanly process of breaking that down

Let's see...ammonium phosphate.

 

Ammonium phosphate

 

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

 

Ammonium phosphate - Molar Mass = 149.12g/mol. The normal ammonium phosphate, (NH4)3PO4, is obtained as a crystalline powder, on mixing concentrated solutions of ammonia and phosphoric acid, or on the addition of excess of ammonia to the acid phosphate (NH4)2HPO4. It is soluble in water, and the aqueous solution on boiling loses ammonia and the acid phosphate NH4H2PO4 is formed. Ammonium phosphate is used as an ingredient in some fertilizers as a high source of elemental nitrogen.

 

Diammonium hydrogen phosphate, or diammonium phosphate, (NH4)2HPO4, is formed by evaporating a solution of phosphoric acid with excess of ammonia. It crystallizes in large transparent prisms, which melt on heating and decompose, leaving a residue of metaphosphoric acid, (HPO3).

 

Ammonium dihydrogen phosphate, or monoammonium phosphate, NH4•H2PO4, is formed when a solution of phosphoric acid is added to ammonia until the solution is distinctly acid. It crystallizes in quadratic prisms. Monoammonium phosphate is often used in the blending of dry agricultural fertilizers. It supplies soil with the elements nitrogen and phosphorus in a form which is usable by plants. The compound is also a component of the ABC powder in some dry chemical fire extinguishers.

 

Fertilizer....NOM NOM NOM.

 

Then something else occurred to me...calcium carbonate is kind of wild, too.

 

Precautions

 

Calcium chloride is an irritant, particularly on moist skin. Wear gloves and goggles or a full face shield to protect hands and eyes; avoid inhalation.

 

Dry calcium chloride reacts exothermically when exposed to water. Burns can result in the mouth and esophagus if humans or other animals ingest dry calcium chloride pellets. Small children are more susceptible than adults (who generally have had experience trying to eat hot food, and can react accordingly) so calcium chloride pellets should be kept out of their reach.

 

This sounds like something I wouldn't want to eat.

 

What else? Oh, aluminum sulfate.

 

Aluminium sulfate, written as Al2(SO4)3 or Al2O12S3, is a widely used industrial chemical. It is sometimes incorrectly referred to as alum, as it is closely related to this group of compounds. It occurs naturally as the mineral alunogenite. It is frequently used as a flocculating agent in the purification of drinking water[1][2] and waste water treatment plants, and also in paper manufacturing.

Aluminium sulfate is rarely, if ever, encountered as the anhydrous salt. It forms a number of different hydrates, of which the hexadecahydrate Al2(SO4)3•16H2O and octadecahydrate Al2(SO4)3•18H2O are the most common.

 

It can also be very effective as a molluscicide, killing spanish slugs.

 

Recent research suggests aluminum sulfate may contribute to dementia and Alzheimer's disease.

 

I mean, if you're an adult, go nuts and eat this weirdness. By all means. But, every time I see people taking their kids into a fast food place, I want to scream, "CHILD ABUSE!!!"

The lame thing is, McDonalds doesn't even TASTE that good.

 

I haven't eaten a hamburger in almost thirteen years, but I do remember that I preferred Burger King over McDoodoo's any day (plus they were closer to my house).

 

Maybe the cocaine they put in the Whopper is less stepped on than that Big Mac shit. I don't know.

 

The funny thing is that there's a In-n-Out in my home town now since 2005, and I go there and buy a grilled cheese and fries whenever I'm across the bay.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What? It's In-n-Out, man. That is the Rolls-Royce of junk food.

ETHANOL! HAHAHAHA!

AKA drinking alcohol. I dont know why you are tripping on that one, you probably drank a bunch of it on new years eve.

Yeah, that's the truth. Ethanol is probably the LEAST of the nasty ingredients on the list.

 

I wonder if you could get drunk off of eating a grip of Big Macs. Or if plants would grow out of your butt. Or if you could soak up water like a sponge...or kill slugs, then forget about it.

Did you know that one of the main ingredients in fast food 0milkshakes is potato starch? That's what gives them an ice cream like texture.

I ate some fries from McDonald's about four months ago.

They were wack.

I haven't been back.

 

I would eat their salads when I had to catch a meal before getting on the Greyhound in Dallas.

I always felt jipped.

 

I eat in my kitchen.

It's pretty awesome.

Millet is my new favorite food.

If they start serving millet at McDonald's, maybe I will give them a second chance.

To disappoint me again.

Millet is pretty good. I'm partial to kasha, too. I've been on a basmati kick since I got a free five pound satchel of it....mmmm, basmati.

 

I have some good news, BF. The odds of McDonalds serving millet are about the same as you waking up tomorrow to a beautiful sunrise in the western sky.
