Sales by the fast food industry are at an all-time high. Many people consider the meals offered by the food chains to be healthy and therefore, can be taken as a staple diet. But Natural News reports a completely different story. It is now being revealed that these food stores use certain ingredients that can be harmful to the body. These ingredients include preservatives, emulsifiers, artificial flavors, trans fats, artificial colors and most importantly, Monosodium Glutamate or MSG. All of these substances are known to be highly dangerous to the human body in the long run.
The war on the human body does not stop here. It is now being reported that the McRib sandwich offered by McDonald’s contains ingredients like polycarbonate 80, ammonium sulfate and azodicarbonamide. There are almost 70 more similar chemicals in the sandwich and each one of them more or less retains the same properties. It is needless to mention that almost all of these chemicals are extremely harmful to the body. Azodicarbonamide, for example, is generally used as a bleaching agent in the manufacturing process of foamed plastics. Though it is banned in Australia and Europe, U.S. authorities; however, allow a considerable amount of this compound in food products.
It is true that preservatives prevent oxygen from spoiling food products thus increasing their shelf life. But once these preservatives enter the body, there is a probability that they would even deprive the cells of oxygen. Natural News reports that the preservatives can deprive the cells of oxygen thus paving the way for diseases. Some of the most notable ingredients that can choke the cells are sodium benzoate, canola oil, Monosodium Glutamate, sodium nitrate, margarine, artificial colorings, artificial sweeteners and anti-foaming agents.
