Hooked on chicken nuggets: Girl, 17, who has eaten nothing else since age TWO rushed to hospital after collapsing
mcnugget and wendy's fries contain silicone
Wendy's natural-cut fries with sea salt sound almost like granola in their commercials. The fast-food chain touts that the fries are natural-cut russet potatoes, sprinkled with sea salt for a fry that's better (and better for you).
Shocker of a lifetime -- Wendy's may not be exactly telling the whole truth. According to Yahoo Finance, it's true that Wendy's fries have a bit of skin left on them (making them look all golden and natural).
A visit to Wendy's nutrition information website confirms the use of dimethylpolysiloxane, a silicone-based antifoaming agent.
American McNuggets (190 calories, 12 grams of fat, 2 grams of saturated fat for 4 pieces) contain the chemical preservative tBHQ, tertiary butylhydroquinone, a petroleum-based product. They also contain dimethylpolysiloxane, “an anti-foaming agent” also used in Silly Putty.
Dimethylpolysiloxane is used as a matter of safety to keep the oil from foaming, McComb says. The chemical is a form of silicone also used in cosmetics and Silly Putty.
BHQ is a preservative for vegetable oils and animal fats, limited to .02 percent of the oil in the nugget. One gram (one-thirtieth of an ounce) can cause "nausea, vomiting, ringing in the ears, delirium, a sense of suffocation, and collapse," according to “A Consumer’s Dictionary of Food Additives.”
(What does this mean? It means they put Dimethylpolysiloxane in mcnuggets/fries and wendy's fries to help them hold their shape and look good.
Yes thats right they are putting the same silicone in the fries and mcnuggets that are used in cosmetics.
It is occasionally called dimethicone makes hair shiny and slippery), food (antifoaming agent), caulking, lubricating oils, and heat-resistant tiles.
A real "chicken nugget" doesn't contain silicone, it can be found in a farm yard.. A chicken mcnugget contains silicone.
Doesn't this make you just say ummmmmm give me a mcnugget to eat.) Story Reports
