Hi all,

I will never eat McDonalds from now if this is true.
I knew they sold fast food but I never knew it was this pile of crap.
Even insects won´t touch the food!

This might be another Mc Donalds slam but I want to know your opinion.


Inside each hamburger you can find meat from over 1000 cows
Plus a delicious blend of:
1,1,1,trichloroethane
1,2,4,trimethylbenzene
BHC,alpha
chloroform
chlorotoluene, o-
chlorpyrifos
DDE, p,p
DDT, p,p

I love Mc Donalds...

Some stuff my cousin told me, might be true he worked there a long time....
Apparently the stamp on the big mac that reads "made with 100% beef" .. That would be false advertisement and illegal, I would think,

Exept one loophole I would call it is the company they get the meat from its called "100% beef."

Another thing he told me is that because of the way they get the mead and whatnot, they are aloud to have 6% rat crap.

It taste good though lol

Perhaps of the 60% (assumption) meat content, 100% of that 60% is indeed real beef!

Why is it that when I eat McCheeseburgers, they taste real good going down, but I feel like I've punished my stomach and intestines somehow shortly afterwards?

That's a McGut feeling I get, somethings not quite right.

I'd always heard they were filled with sawdust! Guess the bionic matter is a step above.

100% Beef...Indeed...

I wonder if we can sue for False Advertisement?

I remember the ol' 'protein worm thingy' that went around way back, to which McDonalds' aptly replied as 'hogwash'.

Looking at the above chemical breakdown chart...Man oh man, that's a helluva lot of chemicals they put in the beef eh?

"Beef up da beef"

"Who's yer Clown....Who's yer daddy?

Most of that list is pesticides, herbicides, and insecticides, but it makes no mention of the percentages. I'll bet it's a lot less that one hundredth of one percent for the entire meal. I didn't check the definition of every item on the list, but growth hormones are probably on there.

It's fine to point a finger at McDonald's, but the same could be said for any meat you consume at any restaurant, or buy at the grocers.

These chemicals are used to keep weeds out of fields and insects off the crops that feed the animals, and some are used to keep the bugs off of the animals themselves. Some items listed are for keeping the animal healthy from bacteria and parasites.

The only way to eliminate the use of all chemicals in agriculture would be to get rid of over half the human population and pay $50.00 for each burger, because we would all starve to death without the increased production we get from there use.

I bet we would get a similar list if we tested a chunk of flesh of almost any human, but like the animals we eat, it would be trace amounts measured in parts per million.

And no, there is no sawdust in the burger patties.

I've heard rumors of rat meat being in their patties too.. Yuck. I havent touched their hamburgers in years since I became Ill from eating a cheeseburger. Blech! I love how most of their stuff, including their salads have more calories than they should... gogo American obesity!!! They don't seem to really care for the health of their consumers..

It's the consumer that is directly responsible for their own health.
Do you want the corporate giants to decide what you can or can't eat.


Could they devise a quick blood test to check the amount of chemicals you already have in your body, and then serve you accordingly ???

Maybe fast food places should have a scale at the door, and then if you're too fat they just say no when you order the double burger and large fries.:shk:


The choice is your's, all you can do is educate yourself and make those choices based on that knowledge. Corporate responsibility is to the shareholder first, and if the health of the consumer happens to benefit the bottom line you get a healthy product.

To be precise the name of the company that supplies the patties is "100% Pure". Or at least that's what they're called here in Malaysia. The loophole allows McD Malaysia to even claim their chicken burgers are "100% Pure Chicken".

BS. I know soy-meat when I taste it.

Actually, the food industry purposely adds certain chemicals to the food that causes addiction to the food and it causes obesity and other health problems. The FDA allows this to happen in order to keep people sick and on prescription drugs.

This is not my opinion. There are many grassroots health organizations that have already exposed this information as fact and are warning people not to consume fast food and most all processed food purchased from supermarkets.

You are right in that consumers are responsible for their own health. However, the government has done a pretty good job of convincing people that processed foods are good for them when they are really highly dangerous and cause most of the health problems prevalent in our society today.

The best thing everyone can do is not trust the media, the tv commercials that promote fast food and processed foods. The only way to be healthy is to consume organic foods only.

Would you care to name the additives that cause addiction to a Big Mac.
I'd like a source to that as well........

I can understand the addictive properties of nicotine and caffeine, but neither of those are found in burgers or fries.

Yes, you're 100% correct, I worded my post kinda oddly...(plus im tired lol) I just wish they had actual healthy options for those who want to go out to dinner but dont want the cholesterol count of Homer simpson. The only healthy option is to ignore fast food chains (duh, right?
) I'm trying to watch my intake, but I'll admit it's very hard to when theres the smell of a delicious burrito..or whatever.

I can't speak for McDonalds but the curry sold at Indian restaurants in Malaysia sometimes make headlines when it is found that amongst the ingredients added is something locally called "kus-kus". Basically it's opium poppy seeds. Apparently it makes the curry taste really good and extremely satisfying or as the locals would say "syok!"

I can honestly say I've never had a big mac.
I think I had one of their chicken burgers once at college, going home with friends after a few beers, but a big mac? no, never, and I never will.

You'll also find that their burgers contain offal as well as mechanically reclaimed meat.

If you want to have a closer look at McD's this is a good place to start.

Fast food conspiracy and a half! I'd liek to know the chemicals they use to make people become addicted, I eat at McDonalds but have never craved one so much i'd purposly go out of my way to buy one.

I think McDonalds gets a bad rap for the current obesity fads. I am well aware they are unhealthy but it is my choice, if I thought I was getting fat I wouldn't but maybe thats just me, I think most fat people who divulge too much would just move elsewhere to get their high fatty foods. As for other members mentioning hygeine issues, many of you would be amazed at what goes on in many restaurants and the hygene practises there!

I don't know about you guys but whenever I eat anything from McDonald's, I feel this urge to go to the toilet after. It's like laxatives for me. And that makes me feel like I just wasted five bucks on a "McValue" meal. Garbage in garbage out I guess.

What I mean by 'addiction' to fast food is that certain additives such as msg, salt, sugar, etc, create a condition called 'taste inflation' which desensitizes the taste buds by over-flavoring the foods. So then when you eat food that is normally flavored, it doesn't taste good.

Another name for these chemicals are 'excitotoxins'. The flavors overexcite the nerve endings and kill them, leading to brain damage. When people eat these foods on a regular basis, they no longer want to eat foods without chemicals because they can no longer taste the normal subtle flavors of the food.

I experienced this myself when I switched to eating only organic foods. At first, organic salad dressing tasted boring to me, but it only took a few weeks for me to become adjusted to it and now it tastes great. And now if I taste salad dressing that contains chemicals, it's like sucking on a lemon. My taste buds cannot handle it and it tastes terrible to me.

Here's an article that discusses this phenomenon in detail:
Taste inflation revealed: why sugar, salt and fragrance make you stupid

And speaking of McDonalds, did you know that the former CEO died of colon cancer at age 44?

Big Macs and me don't mix. I always get the... uh... well gotta sit on the toilet for long periods of time. Lately their Chrispy Chicken Bacon Ranch sandwich has been doing that too.(Which sucks cuz I love those!) LOL. But I'm like that with Taco Bell too. Also with BLT pizzas, no matter where from...

Great post annestacey.


I'm going to do some reading on excitotoxins, I had never heard of this before.


The most well-known (to the general public) excitotoxic concern is the current debate over aspartame, also known as NutraSweet, and monosodium glutamate (MSG) . Approximately 40% of aspartame (by mass) is broken down into the amino acid aspartic acid (also known as aspartate), an excitotoxin. Because aspartame is metabolized and absorbed very quickly (unlike aspartic acid-containing proteins in foods), it is known that aspartame could spike blood plasma levels of aspartate. Glutamate does not normally cross the blood-brain barrier in most parts of the brain without active uptake by transporters. Glutamate concentrations in the blood are normally higher than those in the extracellular space around brain cells.

And to MacSen191..........

Don't get me started on Taco Bell, I love their food, butt.......

Here's a short paragraph about excitotoxins from an article on the Newstarget website:


Excitotoxins have been found to dramatically promote cancer growth and metastasis. In fact, one aspartame researcher noticed that, when cancer cells were exposed to aspartame, they became more mobile, and you see the same effect with MSG. It also causes a cancer cell to become more mobile, and that enhances metastasis, or spread. These MSG-exposed cancer cells developed all of these pseudopodians and started moving through tissues, which is one of the earlier observations from cancer.
