If you’ve been thinking “outside the bun” lately, you may also want to be eating “outside the taco shell,” because what’s lurking inside that “crunchwrap supreme” and the “volcano taco” is only about 35 percent actual meat, and the rest is well … grade F “stuff.”
In order to counter rumors that Taco Bell was using grade “E” meat (which doesn’t exist by the way), the fast food monster has launched an advertising campaign to span the mass media saying they are quickly becoming the “healthiest fast food chain,” but the facts all beg to differ, despite the consultation made by a corporate dietician and product developer. No, you’re not at Chipotle, so don’t get excited. You’re still at a junk food, junk science chain with a new “shell” for the structure, and a whitewashed menu, still served up in a Doritos taco shell, hard or soft, that warrants a little further research as far as “healthy” is concerned.
T-bell pulling ‘artificial ingredients’ and lowering sodium, but retaining antibiotic-laden meat, soy lecithin, maltodextrin and modified corn starch
According to a lawsuit filed by an Alabama-based law firm, Taco Bell is using a meat mixture that contains “binders and extenders” that do not meet even the minimum USDA requirements to be labeled as “beef.” Taco Bell’s meat mixture is only one-third meat; the rest is just fillers, and genetically modified fillers at that. What’s the use of bragging about less sodium and less artificial ingredients when the pink slime is spiced up and loaded with corn starch, fluoridated water, glyphosate-ridden wheat oats and superbug-creating antibiotics?
Plus, cage-free eggs aren’t all they’re “cracked up” to be. The term cage-free often means the chickens are still locked up in CAFOs (confined animal feeding operations), with just a few minutes allowed to roam around (usually still inside a barn or warehouse), and the abused animals are still fed genetically modified feed and live in horrific conditions. Why else would they need to be jacked up with antibiotics all day? It’s to stave off infections, E. Coli, salmonella and virus-breeding superbugs.
Illusion of healthy choices through new low-calorie ‘Fresco’ and high-protein ‘Cantina’ menu on website and mobile app
The Taco Bell team is hard at work using fancy words to convince everyone their grade “F” meat and some spiced-up GM corn starch is chock full of vitamins and minerals. The social media reaction? LOL and LMAO.
Want GMO vegetarian? T-bell’s got it! Want GMO vegan-friendly junk food? T-bell’s on it! With a touch of a button, you can customize your Frankenfood to fit your preventable disease needs. Still, Taco Bell knows exactly what they’re doing. They even admit that they’re not making a “huge deal” out of touting their new health offerings, because “it’s not authentic and it’s not real,” according to Taco Bell spokesman Alec Boyle.
You can “customize” junk science all day, but it will never make you healthy; it’s just more of the same with a new name, some stucco and some paint. What good is a salad if the vegetables were watered with fluoridated water and sprayed with chemical pesticides? What good is salad dressing if it’s loaded with canola and soy? Are you tapping into the genetically modified “food beast” and thinking you’re doing your body good? Here’s the news, and it’s not good: Nobody is taking over the fast food industry except diabetics and obese Americans.
Taco Bell meat classified as grade ‘F’ … What happened to grades C and D?
There are four main pros and four main cons to all fast food. On the good side, it’s hot, cheap, fast and prepared for you. On the bad side, it causes obesity, cancer, diabetes and Alzheimer’s disease. Are you falling for the price and convenience ploys? There’s a major price to pay, and you’ll be getting a failing “grade” for choosing the wrong places to dine.
Who’s the fool falling for more fast food tricks? You? While Chick-fil-A and McDonald’s are trying to reduce their use of antibiotic-laden meat to try to impress folks and convince them that less drugged-up chickens and cows are a better choice, Taco Bell hasn’t bothered to even address the problem. Antibiotic superbugs are a huge problem for the medical world in general, and 70 percent of those drugs are used on CAFO farm animals to prevent bacterial infections.
Taco Bell is nothing like Chipotle, although they’re trying hard through deceptive marketing practices to convince you that they might be. Even McDonald’s and Dunkin Donuts (think sausage, egg and cheese biscuit) got a “C” grade for their meat. Who else got an “F” for their meat besides Taco Bell? Wait for it … wait for it … KFC, Olive Garden, Sonic and Papa John’s.
So now, tell us again, what’s for breakfast, lunch and dinner?
