McNugget of Contradiction?

Mark Sisson, of Mark’s Daily Apple, linked to this article “4 Shocking Secrets About Fast Food” that lists some information (what most of us already assumed) about fast food and in which they also lambast the Chicken McNugget, saying:

The “meat” in the McNugget alone contains seven ingredients, some of which are made up of yet more ingredients. (Nope, it’s not just chicken. It’s also such nonchicken-related stuff as water, wheat starch, dextrose, safflower oil, and sodium phosphates.) The “meat” also contains something called “autolyzed yeast extract.” Then add another 20 ingredients that make up the breading, and you have the industrial chemical—I mean, fast-food meal—called the McNugget.

And that article, written by the “Eat This, Not That” guys, linked to this other article “The Best Healthy Foods in America” which lists the top 40 most healthy fast foods in America (according to the “Eat This, Not That” guys).  Number eleven (11) on that list was their choice for the Best Fast Food Kids Meal.  Can you guess what it was?

Um…  which is it guys?  Make up your minds.

And that photo above?  According to these guys, it’s Chicken McNugget meat paste.  Yum.

      Exactly! The guys suggesting that we eschew McNuggets are in the same breath suggesting that those McNuggets are healthy!
