9 Chemicals Found in McDonald’s Food that Will Make You Feel SICK

Despite all bad reputation that the food in McDonald’s has among people and health experts, they continue selling those “tasty” burgers with French fries a side. Melting cheese, juicy beef yummy! Yummy?  Are you sure. We don’t know why those healthy experts are against McDonald’s.

Here Are 10 Reasons Why You Should Stop Eating This Food

  1. Ammonium Sulfate

Ammonium Sulfate

This “element” is in fact an inorganic salt. The main purpose of this ingredient is fertilizer. Other characteristic is that is flame retardant! Hormone disruption can occur if we eat ammonium sulfate.


  1. Silicone Oil in Fast food

Silicone Oil

Do you wear contact lens? Did you lose them while eating McNuggets? Don’t worry, just keep eating; it’s totally safe to eat because the very same material  used to make contact lenses is in fact used in those “delicious” McNuggets.

Silicone oil or dimethylpolysiloxane is a chemical that people use in lubricants, caulking and silly putty.

It is non-biodegradable ingredient and due to safety concerns, its use has been decreased in breast implants.

  1. TBHQ


Many commercial foods, like chips, crackers, fast food contain TBHQ. We can also find this ingredient in lacquers, cosmetic products and resins.

Despite referring to TBHQ as “totally safe,” the FDA has set a strict limit on how much of it we can “put” in food.

Researchers have shown that consuming TBHQ for longer period of time can result in aggravation of stomach cancer, ADHD symptoms and damaged DNA.


Unfortunately a lot of people assume that the only thing they can buy and afford to eat is fast food. You cannot buy Health: Buy healthy and organic ingredients to please your body!

  1. Propylene Glycol

Propylene Glycol

We are sure you like to put antifreeze in your car! But don’t put it in your food!

Propylene glycol is the “good” chemical that actually makes antifreeze absorb water.

People also use it in the treatment of burns, where it can have strong negative effects if we keep it for too long around our body.

Those with existing skin conditions, eye conditions and allergies (so almost all the population) have increased sensitivity.

This ingredient can also “be guilty” for central nervous system depression.

  1. Carminic Acid

Carminic Acid

Insects and deter predators produce Carminic Acid. It will be disgusting to say that people   literally crush the bugs and put them in food products as a means of good food coloring.

In order to produce a pound of dye, 70,000 insects are crushed, killed and then soaked in alcohol.

Well if this “thousands of crushed insects in my “favorite” meal” doesn’t freak you out enough,then we should also add that there is a connection between carminic acid and diarrhea and  asthma.  


  1. Cellulose


We can find cellulose or processed wood pulp  in almost every fast food product. It’s in salad dressing, cheese, muffins, strawberry syrup or whatever you want to enumerate. Low-carb foods contain this main ingredient. So, technically you’re eating lots of indigestible wood and not a lot of carbs in that tasty burger.

  1. Industrial Sand in Fast Food

Industrial Sand

Silica or industrial sand is used to make optical fiber, glass and cement. Fast food restaurants like McDonald’s for example toss the stuff in their meat to prevent clumping.

It’s very dangerous to breathe. In industrial settings, workers use hazmat suits and masks fffooor protection. But what about you in your burger? No problem!

  1. Cysteine-L

Cysteine L

The Amino acid Cysteine-L is synthesized from duck feathers and human hair. People use it to soften breads and pastries and flavor meat. Additionally, it can cause diarrhea, vomiting, rashes constipation, fever, drowsiness, headache, low blood pressure and liver problems.

  1. Prescription Medications

Prescription Medications

There is a huge amount of prescription medication in chicken feed including some banned drugs and antidepressants .

A recent study  found that these medications wind up in chicken products from fast food restaurants.
