Health Corner - Dangers of eating Burger


Image result for BURGER

Before you head out to one of the many fast food joints today, you might want to know exactly what you’re getting:

Beef: This is a mixture of meat scraps and sinew spun in a centrifuge with ammonium hydroxide. The byproducts of this process are known as “pink slime.”

Neotame or NeoTame: Don’t be fooled by this ingredient. It’s the new name for aspartame, a cancer-causing ingredient that has also been linked to premature puberty in girls.

Mono-and Di-glycerides: These fats are added to foods to bind liquids and fats together and act as stabilisers. Usually these names are short for: diacetyl tartaric acid esters of mono and diglycerides, usually derived from animal fat like pork fat.

High fructose corn syrup: This ingredient is used by most fast food manufacturers because it is cheap, even though it has been linked to a growing list of health concerns, including diabetes.

Sodium acid pyrophosphate (or sodium pyrophosphate): This ingredient is often used to maintain the colour of a food, though it is listed as being toxic to blood and advise “do not ingest.”

I don't eat burger but as a caring individual, I know this will help inform someone or some people who have fallen head over heels in love with it.
