For decades, McDonald's has been the poster child of chemically-altered factory-made fast food. While preying on the emotional imprinting of children with on-site playgrounds and social engineering marketing tactics, the restaurant's true fundamental ethics are reflected in the horrors of the factory food industry: imprisoned chickens in tiny cages, genetically modified soy as meat fillers, chemically-altered menu ingredients and a geopolitical form of processed food imperialism that has resulted in McDonald's restaurants "occupying" hundreds of nations around the world while exporting obesity, diabetes and heart disease globally.
Slowly but surely, the public has increasingly caught on to the McDonald's sleight-of-food stage magic. Feel-good advertising can't cover up the truth about its inhumane treatment of animals, genetically modified food ingredients and insidious social programming that tries to equate the restaurant with an emotional state of bliss. "Happy Meal..." seriously? I doubt the chickens who were slaughtered for that meal were very happy...
Corporate earnings in free fall
Now, the global restaurant chain is feeling the financial vacuum that happens when people realize you've been feeding them poison. Corporate earnings are "in an absolute free fall", reports Quartz.com. "McDonald’s announced today that sales at stores open at least a year were down more 1.7% worldwide, and dropped 4% in the all important US market."
And where are people going instead?
A 4% plunge in the US market is almost unheard of in the fast food chain business. That kind of move away from McDonald's is not a correction, it's a stampede for the exits.
And where are people going instead? To restaurants like Chipotle, which was once owned in large part by McDonald's but has since branched off and found a groove with more health-conscious customers who really do give a hoot where their food ingredients come from.
Desperate to make up for lost ground, McDonald's has announced its intention to (kinda sorta) remove "human antibiotics" from its chicken meat supply. In a document entitled, McDonald’s Global Vision for Antimicrobial Stewardship in Food Animals," the company says it hopes to "[p]rohibit the use of antimicrobials in food animals that are by WHO definition 'critically important' to human medicine, and not presently approved for veterinary use."
Huh? They're going to require the removal of antibiotics which are not presently approved for use in animals? So what are those chemicals doing in the food supply in the first place? If you've been eating Chicken McNuggets over the years -- and who wouldn't enjoy chicken parts that are pressure-formed into the exact same four cookie-cutter shapes? -- you've apparently been chomping away on human antibiotics which were never approved for use in animals in the first place.
Even more worryingly, the document doesn't even say McDonald's is absolutely phasing out those antibiotics. One paragraph explains, in classic Dilbert speak, that McDonald's "...will work within each area of the world with stakeholders, including suppliers, industry partners, government agencies, NGOs, veterinary and university extension networks, and other retailers to gain alignment on expectations and developing timelines for implementation and verification criteria that would reduce the use of medically-important antimicrobials in food animals."
Wow. Maybe McDonald's should start serving up Wishy Washy Milkshakes because talk of "gaining alignment on expectations for implementation and verification" just takes the prize for corporate doublespeak. Why not just test all the raw food materials for antibiotics and reject the suppliers that fail the test? (Answer: Because then they'd have no food to actually sell to the public...)
McDonald's claims to be protecting animal welfare?
Pathetically, that same document also insists that "Treating animals with care is integral to McDonald’s animal health and welfare program."
Animal health and welfare program? Does it look like Guantanamo Bay for chickens and cows? I'd sure like to see some independent video of these facilities where McDonald's claims it is exercising its animal "health and welfare programs."
I know what animal health and welfare really is. I recently saved the life of a chicken that had part of its hind quarter eaten by a dog. (See shocking photos here.) On my ranch in Texas, I treat animals with compassion and care, and because they are being raised in a healthy, free-range environment, they don't need any chemical antibiotics! Nada.
Corporations that deny we have already entered the era of food transparency will be crushed by it
Truth be told, if McDonald's hopes to have any real future, it needs to seriously pursue food supply line transparency.
People want to know everything about their food:
• Where their food came from.
• How the animals were raised.
• How the food was processed.
• What was added to it.
• What was removed from it.
• Whether there are any GMOs in it.
• Whether it's contaminated with glyphosate or heavy metals.
• What impact it might have on their health.
Any fast food restaurant company that can't move in the right direction toward providing legitimate answers to these questions is going to lose market share. Because there are plenty of other options out there for people who are willing to pay a little more money in exchange for a little more transparency.

Do You Know Your Body’s Most Important Weight Loss Secret?
By J. Davis III
Tags: HEALING | HEALTHY FATS | REMEDIES
Recently, Doctor of Naturopathy, weight-loss expert and best-selling Amazon author Liz Swann Miller, creator of the Red Smoothie Detox Factor, revealed 2 of the secrets to easy, steady weight loss. Secrets the big food corporations do their best to hide from us.
Secret #1: Enjoy real food. Don’t fall for the lie that you have to deprive yourself to lose weight.
Secret #2: stop eating out. You will automatically eat less without even noticing.
Then start detoxing your body with tasty, nourishing smoothies that are just as easy on your wallet as they are easy to make.

Now prepare yourself for one of the biggest weight loss secrets there is. A secret that, when you use it properly, can transform your body and your health.
You probably know most of us eat too much processed food. What you may not know is that it’s full of toxic chemicals and substandard, dirt-cheap ingredients designed to make you eat more…and force you to gain weight.
Here’s how it works...
“That stuff is just a lot of calories your body can’t use,” Liz told me, “Some are poison. And all these foods are stripped of the anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatories that help your body detox. The result? Your body expends huge amounts of calories to eliminate some toxins—the rest, it stores in your fat to protect you. This is why most people are hungry all the time. They’re not getting energy they need.”
“So… what’s going on with me? Why am I losing weight but not going hungry?”
Liz paused, then dropped the bombshell.
Your body is designed to burn fat. You just have to let it.
“What? I thought we were designed to store fat?!?” We were Skyping and I was practically shouting. Then I heard Liz say…
What good is a fat reserve if you can’t burn it?
Liz continued: “You’re drinking smoothies packed with phytonutrients, anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatories that pull toxins out of you like a tractor beam. Allowing your body to burn those toxin-filled fat stores… and releasing tremendous amounts of stored energy.”
So that’s why I’m losing weight without going hungry.
