Come On…Healthy?!?!

When you bite in to one of those awesome tasting nuggets you would think "This can't be unhealthy, It's just chicken" right??

Look even on TV it says that they are "100% white meat chicken breast".

Sorry to burst your bubble bub.

They do have some chicken breast, BUT those little nuggets have a bunch of other ingredients that questionalbe. These extra ingredients have been proven to make you fat and cause some big health problems.

That's alot of s&*t in that tiny nugget!!


Ok I'm not going to explain each ingredient but here are some of the ones you should worry about.


Autolyzed Yeast Extract: Just another way of saying MSG.

This stuff can cause:

  • burning sensation in the back of the neck, forearms and chest
  • numbness in the back of the neck, radiating to the arms and back
  • tingling, warmth and weakness in the face, temples, upper back, neck and arms
  • facial pressure or tightness
  • chest pain
  • headache
  • nausea
  • rapid heartbeat
  • bronchospasm (difficulty breathing) in MSG-intolerant people with asthma
  • drowsiness
  • weakness

Dextrose: It's sugar, enough said.


Sodium Phosphates: Why would you put this in food??

Sodium Aluminum Phosphate:

Aluminum has been widely researched to cause Alzheimers and dementia.

Check this passage from THE ENCYCLOPEIDA OF NATURAL MEDICINE, by Doctors Joseph Pizzorno & Michael Murray:

"Those with Alzheimer's Disease have significantly higher aluminum levels in their brains than either normal people or patients with other types of dementia, such as from alcohol, atherosclerosis, or stroke. There is a great deal of circumstantial evidence linking chronic aluminum exposure to Alzheimer's Disease."


Hydrogenated Soybean Oil: Trasfat, You already know what that Sh$t does.



A quote by Michael Pollan, The Omnivore's Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals

"But perhaps the most alarming ingredient in a Chicken McNugget is tertiary butylhydroquinone, or TBHQ, an antioxidant derived from petroleum that is either sprayed directly on the nugget or the inside of the box it comes in to "help preserve freshness." According to A Consumer's Dictionary of Food Additives, TBHQ is a form of butane (i.e. lighter fluid) the FDA allows processors to use sparingly in our food: It can comprise no more than 0.02 percent of the oil in a nugget. Which is probably just as well, considering that ingesting a single gram of TBHQ can cause "nausea, vomiting, ringing in the ears, delirium, a sense of suffocation, and collapse." Ingesting five grams of TBHQ can kill."
