Chicken Nuggets Are Made Of This Pink Goop This is mechanically separated chicken. Chickens are turned into this goop so we can create delicious chicken nuggets and juicy chicken patties. It's obscenely gross and borderline alien but it's not going to stop me from eating nuggets. They're too good. The process works a little something like this: There's more: because it's crawling with bacteria, it will be washed with ammonia, soaked in it, actually. Yeah, that's just disgusting. BI Editor's Note: According to this site, the whole chicken carcass is not ground into this pink goop--just the meat-like stuff (tendons, etc.) Send an e-mail to Casey Chan, the author of this post, at article originally appeared at Gizmodo and is republished here with permission.

McDonald’s Uses Worm Meat Fillers But Can Legally Call It 100% Beef - NY Meta McDonald’s Uses Worm Meat Fillers But Can Legally Call It 100% Beef. Large companies have been the subject of rumors that they substitute unusual or unethical substances in their products, usually to decrease costs. McDonald’s is not immune to such claims. McDonald’s has been accused of using everything from worms to cow eyeballs in its burgers. Dating far back to at least 1978, there have been rumors that McDonald’s restaurants use earthworms in their hamburgers. The fact that McDonald’s uses cow eyeballs and worm fillers does not stop them from legally using the claim that they served 100% beef. McDonald’s then ships the beef to their grinding facility in Oak Brook, Illinois where they then take the ground worm filler and add it to their “100% beef patties”. McDonald’s has also been accused of using mutant laboratory meat, and pig fat their milkshakes and ice cream.

‘Ministerie wist al een jaar van Q-koortsbesmettingen’ Foto NRC / Maarten Hartman Binnenland Het ministerie van Landbouw wist al een jaar voordat geitenbedrijven geruimd werden vanwege de Q-koorts welke bedrijven besmet waren geraakt. Het aantal Q-koortsbesmettingen was mogelijk lager uitgevallen als het ministerie die informatie eerder had gedeeld. Dat blijkt uit een reconstructie van Nieuwsuur. De toenmalig verantwoordelijke ministers Ab Klink en Gerda Verburg hebben altijd volgehouden dat er pas eind 2009 een laboratoriumtest beschikbaar was om Q-koorts op te sporen. Volgens Nieuwsuur liet het ministerie al in de zomer van 2008 tests uitvoeren waaruit bleek dat bedrijven besmet waren met Q-koorts. Er is veel kritiek geweest op het handelen van Klink en Verburg. Nationale ombudsman Alex Brenninkmeijer zei onlangs dat het gepast zou zijn als Klink en Verburg hun excuses zouden aanbieden aan Q-koortspatiënten.

It’s... Why is Big Food Promoting Death on Their Packages? By Truthstream Media It was bad enough when it was just nutritionally void, genetically modified, and filled with dangerous additives and other excitotoxic and potentially carcinogenic chemicals... but now we're literally going to shape our food like little Satan heads and label it "demons" too?

'Ongezond leven moet geld kosten' | DEN HAAG - De overheid zou accijnzen moeten verhogen om zo gezond gedrag te stimuleren. Foto: Thinkstock Dat schrijft de Taskforce Beheersing Zorguitgaven in een vrijdag gepubliceerd rapport in opdracht van het ministerie van Volksgezondheid. Ook zou de huisarts onder het eigen risico moeten vallen, moeten mensen meer zelf gaan betalen en wordt de eigen bijdrage voor langdurige zorg vermogensafhankelijk. De taskforce wil dat mensen meer eigen verantwoordelijkheid nemen om gezond te blijven. De taskforce is dan ook blij met de aangekondigde verhoging van de accijnzen op tabak en alcohol. Nadenken De taksforce vermoedt ook dat mensen beter nadenken over een huisartsbezoek als dat onder het eigen risico valt. In het Lenteakkoord is al afgesproken dat het eigen risico in de zorg naar 350 euro gaat, maar daar bleef de huisarts buiten vallen. Gratis Dat betekent dat een bezoek aan de huisarts gratis blijft.

The Mystery of Abdul-Rahman, or Peter Kassig chiken :B McDonald’s Japan Probes Tooth in Fries, Cargill Nuggets - Bloomberg Business (Bloomberg) -- McDonald’s Corp.’s Japan business said today a human tooth was found in fries, and plastics in chicken nuggets and sundae, in a series of food-safety issues that happened in the past six months.

The company doesn’t plan to halt production and sale of the food items after plastic objects were found in chicken nuggets, Hishinuma said.

6 Ways That Food Is Being Used as a Weapon Against Us By Activist Post Hungry people will do anything for food, which means that those who have control over food can use it as leverage. In 1974, Henry Kissinger suggested using food as a weapon to induce targeted population reduction in a previously classified 200-page report, National Security Study Memorandum 200: Implications of Worldwide Population Growth for U.S. Security and Overseas Interests. The primary tactic to be applied is that food aid would be withheld from developing nations until they submitted to birth control policies: There is also some established precedent for taking account of family planning performance in appraisal of assistance requirements by AID [U.S. So, food was to be used as just another method of imperial colonization to force countries to conform their policies to those desired by the controllers. Here are six ways food is being used to wage war against the population: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. Weather undeniably affects food access and food costs.
