Fast Food Salads Are Not Healthy

(From archived blog, circa 2017.)

Stay Woke Wednesday#1:

Salads made by Fast Food Companies Are NOT Healthy.

I say this because the ingredient they use to keep your salad greens crispy is Propylene Glycol. 


Propylene Glycol, also known as a type of propane (eeek!) , is a byproduct of fossil fuel. 


It is a colorless liquid, creamy, and tastes slightly sweet. 

It is used to melt ice off of planes. 

It is also used to make: 

antifreeze for your car, 

cushions for your outdoor patio furniture,

house paint, 

electronic cigarettes (makes the smoke “smoother,”) 

and perhaps the scariest of all, Astroglide sexual lubricant. 


It comes with a skin irritation warning, possible allergic reaction, and, if exposed to the eyes, may cause conjunctivitis. Yum. 


Neurologically, isolated oral ingestion of propylene glycol, when taken by a control group, were found to have such side effects as stupor, convulsions, depression and other unspecified “severe mental symptoms.”


The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) says it’s “generally recognized as safe.”


Some oncologists state that is an extremely dangerous cancer-causing compound. 


So I ask you: would you want this chemical in your body?


Stay conscious of how you nourish your body my loves. 


Don’t trust the big corporations, big agro OR big  government with your health. 


I love you. Have an amazing, awakened Wednesday. :)
