Topic 46: What Are You Eating? What Is Really In Our Food

Have you ever looked at your food and thought, what am I really eating? There are many things about our food that we don’t know; most of the time we don’t know where it originally came from or what is really in it. We don’t really know what we are putting in our bodies and we don’t know what it could possibly do to our bodies in the long term and in the short term. We don’t know what we are giving our children and family to eat. Food needs to ne nutritious and taste good but what are you really tasting when you bite into your plate of food. Here are just three different foods you are most likely eating. Enjoy the taste.

Hot dog: Fatty left over tissue of an animal that cant be used in other meat products, head meat, animal feet, animal skin, muscle meat, blood, liver and other edible slaughter by-product, salt, ground spices, food starch, water, sweeteners, corn syrup and animal intestines.

MacDonald’s hamburger: harmless ingrediants: beef patty, lettuce, tomato, cheese, buns, mustard and tomato sauce. The beef patty you love could have come from sick animals; so your getting a nice mouthful of bacteria, hormones and antibiotics along with medications made for the animal. In that bun there are around 30 ingredients, all for just bread. Some of the ingredients the buns are made from are also found in fireworks and in soil; high fructose corn syrup is also in buns and this can have serious health problems in high quantities. Pickles and cheese, they seem harm less but also come with around 20 or so ingredients just to make the cheese and pickles.

Most lollies: All lollies are different but in most there are: Animal tissue,  cochineal extract which is crushed up beetles, propylene glycol which is an anti-freeze it can change your skin structure by adding chemicals to your bloodstream, L-Cysteine which comes from human hair and duck feathers and finally Isinglass which can be found in beer and glue.
