Fast Food Giant DRUGGING Our Food!
We all know the McDonald’s slogan these days: “I’m lovin’ it!”
But if you ask me, the only thing these guys “love” is seeing how much garbage they can sneak into our food without us realizing it.
For months, everyone was buzzing about McDonald’s promise to pull dangerous antibiotics from its fast-food menu.
But just like their rivals at Burger King, McDonald’s has been pushing some whoppers of its own.
Because it looks like the entire campaign was one big lie – and we just caught these clowns red-handed.
Mainstream media had a field day promoting McDonald’s “antibiotic ban”.
But the headlines are far from reality. In fact, they’re downright fake news.
McDonald’s will not be ending their practice of pumping chickens full of antibiotics that could wreck your health.
Instead, they’re just going to maybe change which antibiotics they use.
After the entire nonsense was exposed, the company tried to clarify its position on its website, claiming:
We are committing to use chicken that is not raised with antibiotics important to human medicine. McDonald’s has been working closely with farmers for years to reduce the use of antibiotics in our supply, thus we are able to commit today to stop using antibiotics important to human medicine in chicken production…
Are you kidding me? Are we really going to let McDonald’s – America’s #1 heart attack factory – decide which drugs are important for humans?
Letting McDonald’s make medical decisions for millions of Americans is like letting Bernie Madoff manage your 401(k).
Only a company with a clown for a spokesperson would attempt something so ridiculous.
And just because a drug wasn’t initially designed for human consumption doesn’t mean it’s safe to eat.
In fact, the OPPOSITE is true!
Nearly 97% of “agricultural antibiotics” – aka the meds they give to the livestock – are sold without any prescription. Agricultural producers that supply meat to companies like McDonald’s purchase more than 30 million pounds of the stuff every year – and almost none of it is approved or proven safe for humans.
These drugs are used out of GREED, plain and simple. They’re given to animals so they don’t keel over dead at filthy factory farms – and to boost their weight before slaughter without having to feed them more.
And these animal antibiotics can still lead to dangerous antibiotic-resistant bacteria (those so-called “superbugs”) in people.
Scientists just recently discovered that these drug-resistant bacteria not only develop over time, but they can spread their resistance to other organisms (like from animals to humans).
This revelation makes it even more crucial to be diligent about the way animal products get from the farm to our tables.
Your safest bet is to stick with organic and antibiotic-free meat whenever possible.
That means skipping that McDonald’s drive-through line. Because, at the end of the day, that $2 chicken sandwich isn’t worth the risks that come with it.
