Still Eating Fast Foods?

This may change your mind…

I could write a whole series of articles on this one, including the cancer-causing chemical, acrylamide, that all french fries and potato chips contain.

For now, just take a look at the following list of ‘extra’ ingredients you get in a fast food hamburger. In addition to meat from 1,000 different cows, you get a hearty blend of…

1,1,1-trichloroethane
1,2,4-trimethylbenzene
BHC, alpha
chloroform
chlorotoluene, o-
chlorpyrifos
DDE, p,p*
DDT, p,p*
dichlorobenzene, p-
dieldrin
dephenyl 2-ethylhexyl phosphate
ethyl benzene
heptachlor epoxide
lindane
styrene
terachloroethylene
toluene
trichloroehtylenexylene, m- and/or p-
xylene, o-
xylene*
chlorpyrifos-methyl
cumene (isopropyl benzene)
diazinon
dicamba
ethyl benzene
enthyelenethioursa
iprodione
malathion
pirimiphos-methyl
propylbenzene, n-
trichloroethylene


* Ingredients taken from the FDA’s official report on pesticide residues on American fast food.

Did you notice some of the hidden gems in this list? How about malathion, DDT, chloroform…

I’m hungry already, aren’t you?

All the best to you for your health and happiness,
