This is the last straw, I'm cutting myself off the rest of the way from fast food.
8 different popular fast food hamburger brands were tested using
histologic methods. The burgers were evaluated for water content by
weight and then microscopically to verify tissue types. An additional
test known as Glial fibrillary acidic protein staining was used to test
for brain tissue. We’ll give you the good news first, none of the eight
samples had brains in them. Unfortunately that is as good as it gets.
The mean water weight of the burgers was about 50%. Now for the
strange part, actual meat content in the burgers ranged from 2.1% to
14.8 percent. That’s right, the product that you are expecting to get is
only 2-14% of what you really think it is!
What made up the rest of the burger you ask? Well a variety of fun
and interesting tissue types were found. The tissues found other than
skeletal muscle tissue aka meat, were connective tissue, blood vessels,
peripheral nerve, adipose tissue, plant material, cartilage, and bone.
That’s not all folks, also found in some of the burgers were
intracellular parasites known as Sarcocystis.
