What's in fast food chicken?

Chickens are one of the most common and widespread domestic animals. Evidence suggests that the domestication of chickens dates back to 10,000 years ago in southeast Asian jungles.  Chickens are very fond of the company of others. They are very sociable, friendly and extroverted.

The average life of a chicken is 5 - 10 years, depending on the breed. Commercially farmed chicken generally live 6 weeks before slaughter. Free range and organic meat chickens live about 14 weeks before being slaughtered.  The world's oldest chicken died of a heart attack at the age of 16 years old.

In an article titled, What's in Fast Food Chicken? (Hint: It's not chicken) the author reveals: in 2003 a federal judge called McDonald's chicken nuggets a "McFrankenstein creation of various elements not utilized by the home cook." Despite this, McFranken nuggets are fed to millions of people everyday, as a meal ~ sometimes several times a week!

Besides the bit of processed, bland chicken meat there are over 40 other ingredients in that little nugget! If you consider feeding or eating mass-produced chicken meat/pieces, know that half of the morsel is synthetic including: silicone and tertiary butylhydroquinone (TBHQ ~ a form of butane of which 1 gram can cause “nausea, vomiting, ringing in the ears, delirium, a sense of suffocation, and collapse," according to A Consumer’s Dictionary of Food Additives. Five grams of TBHQ can kill you.)  Wonder why kids have so many problems these days???

 

 

 

Mass-market chicken breast meat chickens are produced in such filthy and horrid conditions, that poultry plant work is considered one of the most dangerous jobs in the U.S.  From another good, informative article titled: Love Eating Chicken? ~ "Read this short account of a typical day for a poultry plant worker. If you can stand it, read the entire series in the Charlotte Observer."

The true cost of typical fast food doesn't come out of our wallets, it comes out of our bodies, our health, and our years on this earth!

So what is the solution? ~ Eat less meat overall, eat consciously (look for humanely raised chickens),  treat all meat as a 'special occassion' food and therefore buy the best, cleanest, purist meat.

Ideally, buy and cook whole chickens ~ by roasting, poaching or slow-cooking. Check out the simple recipes in the above highlighted article: Love Eating chickens?
