Imagine putting all that in your body!
Oh wait... I think it is safe to assume that most of us have consumed at least one of the items in the video at least once in our lifetime. I know I have... more than once. I've had hot dogs, burgers, drive-thru fast food, the glorious Spam and Vienna Sausage... and the [once] yummy Taco Bell.
Along the "meat" was rodent hair! When did rodent hair become part of the meat family? Oh wait... it's not all meat. Just thinking about this is making me sick.
I am speechless and grossed out. I can't deny the fact that when "pink slime" hit the news, I did avoid ground meat for a bit... then it "vanished" from my mind. I may have purposely pretended to not remember. But in the back of my mind, the idea of "pink slime" and "fake" meat still existed because this video triggered that same feeling but tenfold.
I watch all my students eat their snack or lunch. Usually it consists of deli meats and sausages. For parents, it's the easiest thing to slap on a sandwich... but possible results is bowel cancer?! I think I'll put in the extra effort to make a better choice lunch. After watching this video and being more health conscious, I am 100% certain that I do not want that in my body or my future children's body.
I am baffled.
What do you think?
