Well, mechanically separated anything isn't a pretty site to see. I work with meat, and you'd be surprised how many people think that there is something wrong when we stock our mechanically separated chicken. It's only a difference in texture.
One looks sinister, the other looks normal. They're both the same stuff. People will say that it's the "odds and ends" of the animals, or the bits nobody wants. Who the # cares? You picky bastards. Seriously. There are only so many kinds of tissue in an animal, and as far as livestock goes it's essentially all edible. There aren't eyes and brains and guts in it. It is marrow, cartilage, and any spare flesh on the carcass. Seriously guys. So, we can eat marrow... we can boil a carcass for soup... but the mechanically separating a carcass is inherently wrong? # right off. As long as everything is kept sanitary [the issue of increased surface area for bacteria] and specific things [brain, spinal cord, organs] are kept out of the mix, there is literally not a single downside to mechanically separated food.
Mechanically separated meat [MSM] is safe and economical. 9 billion chickens were killed in 2008 for food. 35 million cows were killed in 2008. Should we really consider wasting perfectly healthy and nutritional food because we're #ing squeamish about it? Farming livestock is one of the biggest drains on our planet. The amount of resources put into it, and the amount of waste that comes out. It will destroy us if we don't slow our roll.
To be clear, I'm not defending McDonalds or any of it's particular practices. I don't support any fast food. I just can't stand people who talk all high and mighty about # they don't know a #ing thing about. If you want to man up, and admit that you're just a picky brat that only wants the breasts and tenders, go for it... but don't try and drag down MSM like there is something wrong with it. There is only something wrong with you.edit on 3-2-2014 by LeviWardrobe because: (no reason given)
If there's any doubt what so ever that McDonalds et al are feeding you something other than food, just take one month of eating stuff that you definitely recognize as food and see what the difference is.
I had some chronic problems that I believed were the result of a gall bladder surgery a few years back. One month off of fast food and corn syrup drinks made these problems completely disappear.
