WARNING! 20 Gross & Disturbing Food Facts

If you haven't made the decision to eat more "REAL FOOD" after reading this you may have a bit more motivation to consider it!

After reading this blog post I could not help but want to pass it on . . . sorry! 

As you know, I worked in professional kitchens for more than 20 years before I became a doctor, so I thought I was aware of the "gross" side of food, but this information "takes the cake" . . . but after reading what's in those store bought sweets I'm sure you'll never want one again!

The "Secret Ingredients" in Fast Foods and Mass Produced Foods
May Have You Running For Your Own Kitchen!

Any time food is mass produced it loses the loving care that is the "secret ingredient" added by every loving Mother, every gourmet chef, or "foodie" who cooks for the joy of it.  Eating that kind of food can be a truly healing experience. 

On the other hand, as you read on you will find that the "secret ingredients" in these fast or mass produced foods just may make you think twice before you pick one up again! It certainly makes me feel even better about my food choices.  I feel sure that you will feel the same.

20 Gross & Disturbing Food Facts You’ll Wish You Didn’t Know

16  20 Gross & Disturbing Food Facts Youll Wish You Didnt Know
Eating gross things is fascinating when other people do it. It’s why kids pay a dollar to get a weird kid to eat bugs on the playground and the reason NBC has been able to produce 150 episodes of Fear Factor. But when you’re the one eating the gross stuff, it’s not as fun. And there are a lot of disgusting and weird things out there that crop up in our everyday food.
Some of them just feel kind of off-putting, but in the grand scheme of things aren’t that big of a deal. I know how cheese is made and I’m still going to eat five pounds of it if you put it in front of me. Others just feel plain wrong though, chemicals that should be in paint,  or food that’s not fresh being made to look fresh. Here are 20 food facts that will make you think twice next time you’re at the grocery store.

Pubic hairs in fast food?
This one is kind of dicey. You see all over the internet (or you do if part of your job is finding out gross things about food) that the average fast food patron consumes 12 pubic hairs in a year, but no one seems to have a source. So maybe it's not true, but as someone who worked in fast food in high school, let me say that given the people I worked with, their attitudes toward sanitation, and their attitudes toward the customers, it would not surprise me in the least if this were true.
