I’m sure most of you have seen this article, “9 Disgusting Things You Didn’t Know You’ve Been Eating Your Whole Life,” by now, but in case you haven’t, I’d like to provide you with some entertainment for today.
The article picks a few ingredients found in foods that are also found in other things (e.g., L-cysteine being found both in human hair and in bagels). Can we just take a moment to realize somebody just listed an amino acid as something disgusting we consume? An. Amino. Acid. I heard water is used in paint thinner. I guess we should just avoid water too!
These “ingredients” that are listed are found in such trace amounts that they will not kill you, unless you eat 1000 cakes in one sitting or something. Like Hank Green said, to everyone who doesn’t like the idea of having “chemicals in your food,” everything is chemicals!
I hope everyone gets a good laugh out of this article! I know I sure did.
I AM LAUGHING SO HARD RIGHT NOW. People are so fucking stupid.
OH GOD CYSTEINE IS AN AMINO ACID. IT HAS THE WORD ACID IN IT SO IT MUST BE BAD. AAAAAAAAAH *mumbles something about “all-natural” and “artificial is evil”*
