McDonalds = unhealthy. This isn't new.
What also isn't new is that the McDonalds McRib contains something called azodicarbonamide, or azobisformamicide, which is defined as a oderless and synthetic chemical. Does this surprise you? Well while I'm happy to inform you, it shouldn't. In fact, this chemical can unfortunately be found in a lot of breads, all over the menu, especially those in fast food restaurants (Subway, Burger King, KFC, McDonalds, just to name a few). Since chances are, you've already consumed the chemical, you might be inclined to check the list of ingredients on your packaged bread when you have the chance.
What is this azodiwhatchacallit found in? Oh, I don't know...maybe shoe soles, yoga mats and other foamed products. Personally, this is not something I care to have in my body and think that the power of social media should spread the word to all these franchises of our disappointment. If they really cared about their customers, wouldn't they not add in "possibly harmful" chemicals? Oh, not so fast FDA. The U.S. government needs to also take responsibility like Europe and Australia has done to ban places all food products from containing chemicals like this.
What are your thoughts on the issue and are you surprised? Leave a comment!
