Mike Adams, Health Ranger of Natural News, conducted a forensic food investigation of Chicken McNuggets two months ago, revealing mysterious ingredients that are not chicken. Adams' investigation apparently inspired scientists to conduct their own investigation on the chicken nuggets. Their findings were published in the American Journal of Medicine. The study was conducted by Dr. Richard deShazo, UMMC professor of medicine, pediatrics and immunology at the University of Mississippi Medical Center.
A series of photos, in which the chicken nuggets were magnified 200 times, shows strange fibers, hairs and unidentified red and blue splotches inside the nuggets. There is also a video that Adams filmed of the weird items inside the nugget. From the photos and video, there was nothing inside the nuggets that resembled chicken.
From Natural News:
There has been a wave of public speculation about whether these fibers are related to a mysterious condition known as "Morgellon's," which also appears to involve the presence of strange, unexplained fibers in humans.
Striated muscle (chicken meat) was not the predominate component in either nugget. Fat was present in equal or greater quantities along with epithelium, bone, nerve, and connective tissue.
Conclusion: Chicken nuggets are mostly fat, and their name is a misnomer.
Moms and dads across the nation should be mortified that the food they have been providing for their little ones is nothing more than chicken cells, bits of bone, nerves, ligaments and blood vessels with a huge glob of fat. It is likely that some pet foods contain more actual chicken meat than a McDonald's chicken nugget.
No one has implied that the nugget is unsafe to eat, but no one really knows what some of the mystery ingredients are. The nuggets are definitely not healthy to eat. No sane parent would remove all the parts of a chicken that people don't eat and use those parts to make a chicken patty for dinner.
