What are you eating

We have often been told not to consume junk on a daily basis, but there are a lot of things you are consuming which you don’t realize are harming your body. We have almost always neglected the nutrition label at the back of pockets but once in a while you should glance at them and see what is going inside you. Here are a list five common food items that fast food companies sell that have extremely harmful additives.

#1 Chicken Nuggets
So you might be making fun of those silicon implanted models but did you know you might be consuming some of that silicon too? Yeah that’s right if you are a fan of those Mc Chicken nuggets, which contain just 50% chicken, the rest 50? Well it’s all a chemical used in silicone breast implants!

#2 Coffee

Your favourite coffee houses such as Starbucks and Café coffee day might be doing something harmful to you too! They use colouring in their coffee and foods which is obtained from? Well they are obtained from female beetle shells and even from petroleum products.

#3 Bread

This might come as a shock to you. But why does the bread at McDonalds and Burger King seem so yummy? Well it’s because of the addition of a special additive which well, um, comes from your own hair. Majority of this product is obtained from the hair left over in barber shops. Now you know where your hair probably goes!

#4 MSG

We are sure you have heard of MSG, its mostly present in Chinese dishes and it is so unhealthy that FDA hasn’t yet approved of it, but well KFC does take the liberty to add to all your favourite chicken dishes. MSG can lead to headache, dizziness, palpitations and seizures. Well quite a lot of risk for chicken wing!

#5 French Fries

You might think it is okay to munch on French fries every once in a while but after reading what I note down below you might just rethink your choice the next time, at least I hope so.

Acrylamide – Carcinogenic

Azodicarbonamide – This is added in plastic and banned in a lot of countries I am sure it’s for a reason.

Sodium acid pyrophosphate – This substance can cause rashes to eyes and skin if it happens to come in contact just think what it might do to your tummy.
