Researchers from the UMMC (University of Mississippi Medical Center) were studying chicken nuggets and came across to some astonishing facts. You probably didnt know but chicken nuggets are only 40-50% actual chicken meat, while the rest of it is bone fragments, nerves, blood vessels, sinew, skin and fat.
One of the most amazed people included in this experiment was Richard deShazo. He is a professor of pediatrics, medicine and immunology at UMMC. He is worried because the chicken nugget is dangerous for our health. However, even though it is not pure chicken meat it has a delicious taste and the worst part is that children love it.
Richard used to believe what other studies claimed but he has never actually looked into the nuggets under microscope himself. What he saw was a product high in calories, sugars, fats and salt. The study showed that there is 50% skeletal muscle and the rest of the nuggets are consisted of blood vessels, nerves and the most dominant were fats.
Richard made a comment that he is highly concerned because chicken nuggets are very common in many peoples diets and we all know how high in calories fried food is. He is also concerned because every day more and more people are eating these unhealthy products instead of eating fresh fruits and vegetables.
Besides these, there are a lot more harmful ingredients put in food by famous food companies.
L-Cysteine is an amino acid and can be found in cow horns, chicken and duck feathers and human hair collected from a barber shop. This amino acid is added to bread and products from the leading fast food companies such as Burger King, Dunkin Donuts and McDonalds.
