If the bulk of fast food chicken nuggets is not actually chicken meat, what’s in them?
Nota del Doctor
More on fecal contamination from chicken in Fecal Bacteria Survey, from fish in Fecal Contamination of Sushi, and from pigs in Yersinia in Pork. How can all that be legal? See Salmonella in Chicken & Turkey: Deadly but Not Illegal.
For more on the preservatives in chicken, see Phosphate Additives in Meat Purge & Cola. For more on antibiotic contamination, see Drug Residues in Meat. Estrogenic Cooked Meat Carcinogens also build up in poultry in particular, something the Physicians Committee also tested for previously; see Fast Food Tested for Carcinogens.
If we’re going to eat something chickenish that isn’t chicken meat, why not truly boneless chicken? See Chicken vs. Veggie Chicken.
