Yuck! What’s Really in that Chicken Nugget



New in Personalized Living Webzine:

Quoted Text
Some might think that ordering the chicken patty in a fast food restaurant would be a “healthier” choice than the pink slime laden burger, but a recent investigation by a team from the University of Mississippi Medical Center and published in the American Journal of Medicine found otherwise.  In their study, scientists looked at two “chicken nuggets” from leading national fast-food chains and found that they were less than 50% actual chicken – the remaining 50% was made up of a hodgepodge of pure fat, blood vessels, pieces of bone, nerves, and cartilage.

If this is true, it isn't hard to imagine how undesirable the chicken must have been in the first place- unfit for  whole, parts, fillets, etc.

I'm sure the industry argues that it's every bit as nutritionally sound, but...   :o

The buying public really has it's "head in the sand".
