What is in a Chicken Nugget?

Leave a comment


Dr Greger does an autopsy of chicken nuggets in the video below. Chicken is an item missing or almost missing from chicken nuggets! It’s mostly skeleton, skin and fat (no meat). We seem to have laws that allow names to represent an item in a misleading way. Do you really want to feed your kids skin, skeleton and fat? No wonder America’s waist line is in a constant growth!

 

Beef Lowers Cholesterol Scam!

The beef industry bought and paid for an ad that claims beef can be GOOD for you. It actually lowers your cholesterol. Dr Greger says what they really did was take a group of people have them eat beef but cut back on poultry so much that their overall cholesterol did go down. This was not because of eating beef but not eating so much poultry. Eating all meat (beef or poultry) will increase cholesterol levels. Faking out a study to make your product look good is wrong. Don’t be fooled America. They are scamming you for your dollars!

If you cut saturated fat (cheese, meat, Crisco, lard any animal products). The chair of nutrition at Harvard pointed this out and stated the cholesterol levels would have dropped even more if the beef was also eliminated and more plant-based protein was consumed.

 

Our Meat Consumption is up, but is America at it’s Peak?

Meat

Allison Van Dusen of Forbes says In 2000, total meat consumption, including red meat, poultry and fish, reached 195 pounds per person — 57 pounds above the average annual consumption in the 1950s, according to the USDA Agriculture Fact Book, 2001-2002, the latest version. In all, Americans consumed about 7 pounds more red meat, 46 pounds more poultry and 4 pounds more fish and shellfish than in the 1950s. It is these increases in saturated fat that has turned American health bad. We are eating more meat and animal protein than we ever did. Are bodies have not evolved to digest this amount of animal protein. Try reducing your consumption by following meatless Mondays and then increase it so you eventually get to eating meat only once a week. If you have the power to give it up completely go vegetarian or better yet vegan.
