Title: "Where's The Food." - Oil on Canvas (24' x 30")

TOXIC FOOD.

 

WTF food is almost entirely comprised of toxic ingredients, which makes it more suited for a lab table than a dining table. One ingredient is the excitotoxin, monosodium glutamate (MSG). It is a flavour-enhancing food additive. Symptoms of MSG sensitivity include flushing, stomach cramps, nausea, heart palpitations, shortness of breath, dizziness, and more. 

It is also associated with several serious illnesses, especially those affecting the brain like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson's, and Lou Gehrig’s disease. Its other ingredients, like hydrolyzed protein, autolyzed yeast extract, yeast, and soy extract, also contain MSG. The WTF secret ingredient is primarily MSG but also sodium phosphate, which is another additive that intensifies flavors. It has been linked to organ damage, especially the kidneys. Other ingredients include

• Sodium benzoate (a food preservative that has been linked to asthma attacks, hypertension, strokes, and an increased risk of heart and kidney disease).

• Sodium nitrite (a preservative used to cure various meats and make them look fresh; its consumption is linked to pancreatic cancer).

• Propylene glycol (an alcohol-based additive that is also found in antifreeze, paint, and plastics; it is toxic to the liver and kidneys, and can also cause neurological and heart problems). 

• Fructose (derived from high fructose corn syrup HFCS, which contributes significantly to obesity and is linked to an increased risk of type 2 diabetes and heart disease).

• Acrylamide (a carcinogenic chemical).

• Red # 40 and Yellow # 5 (the most commonly used food dyes, which can cause allergies and attention deficit

disorder). 

• Genetically modified soy (a phytoestrogen that mimics estrogen in the body).

Last but not least, these foods are cooked in toxic trans-fats (partly hydrogenated GMO-derived vegetable oils) for which the dangers include heart, kidney, and liver problems, as well as hypertension and strokes.

 

The chicken used by most fast food restaurants is of very poor quality and is full of antibiotics, steroids, and growth hormones, all of which we ingest when we consume the meat. 

Furthermore, these chickens are also subject to cruel and inhumane treatment. They are crammed into poop-filled closed sheds where they never see daylight. Horrific videos have emerged that show workers stomping on chickens or placing them alive in boiling water to remove their feathers more easily.
