[UPDATED] Girl, 17, Collapses After Eating Nothing But McDonald’s Chicken Nuggets For 15 Years

article-2092071-11770CE3000005DC-712_634x697

UPDATE: Friday January 27th, 2012 at 10:45 AM - A friend of mine wrote me last night in regards to the process of washing the chicken “meat” in ammonia and this is what he had to say: “The nuggets article got me reading and I think you included something incorrect. Soaking nuggets in ammonia is not common practice. As a science nerd, I’m pretty sure Anhydrous Ammonia would be deadly. I couldn’t find any credible info, but Snopes says that the ammonia rumor comes from the fact that refrigeration leaks have contaminated ground meat in the past. Just thought you may want to hear what I found.”

This story comes just a short time after the nugget whore who offered up sexual favors in return for these delicious chicken nuggets. I, myself, really enjoy the occasional chicken nugget and can understand ones appreciation; What I don’t understand is how you could survive on JUST nuggets for nearly 15 years.

Stacey Irvine was introduced to her favorite food at the age of two, when her mother bought her the delicious fried meat. She enjoyed them so much that she has stuck to these (and sometime’s KFC‘s) for many years and occasionally has a piece of toast for breakfast as well. Miss Irvine has never had any fruits or vegetables, which is just crazy in my opinion.

Shocked doctors learned of her habit when the factory worker, from Castle Vale, Birmingham, collapsed and was taken to hospital after struggling to breathe.

The young teenager has swollen veins in her tongue and has also been diagnosed with anaemia. Medical employees gave her some injections as well as an urgent course of vitamins. She has managed to live very long with extremely poor nutritional habits.

Miss Irvine, who prefers McDonald’s treats but also enjoys KFC’s, told The Sun: ‘I am starting to realise this is really bad for me.’

Evonne Irvine, Stacey’s mother, has two other children who are much different from their elder sister. Leo who is five-years-old and Ava who is three-years-old are both healthy eaters. I think this mother must have learnt from her mistake. Maybe if Stacey Irvine saw the photo of how chicken mcnuggets were made, she’d have a change of heart.

The photo above is McDonald’s Chicken McNugget “meat” that is mechanically separated. What does that mean, you ask? Well, it means that the company realized they can scrape the bones from the animal with a machine and get this lovely pink paste you see above. Unfortunately, the process doesn’t end here. After the bones have been scraped, the “meat” is then washed with ammonia to get all the residual bacteria removed. And well, because it tastes so awful, it will be artificially  re-flavored and died with artificial color to get rid of that odd pink color.  Then, many people all over ingest this product into their body, just like Miss Stacey Irvine. McDonald’s gains a profit, and you lose years of your life! What a great deal!

HEALTH TIME BOMB: NUGGET NUTRITION FACTS

 A diet based solely on chicken nuggets and fries has dangerous amounts of fat and salt.

It also contains few vitamins and other nutrients that are vital for maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

Sasha Watkins, of the British Dietetic Association, said: ‘Such a limited diet will be low in important nutrients like calcium, fibre, antioxidants and good fats.

‘Parents should never force a child to eat something but always keep offering new foods.’

A junk food diet with few or no vegetables can raise blood pressure and weakens the immune system.

It can also lead to an increased risk of heart attacks or strokes, particularly as we get older.

The table below shows the nutritional values of both a small box of McDonald’s McNuggets and a small portion of fries, and the recommended daily dietary allowances for women aged 18 to 29.

Also it shows how how many calories, fat and other nutrients there are in three nugget-and-fries meals.

Nutrition Recommended Six McNuggets Small fries Three meals
Calories 2,000 280 230 1,530
Fat 56g 17g 11g 84g
Protein 58g 14g 3g 51g
Carbohydrate 275g 16g 29g 135g
Salt 540mg 240mg 64mg 912mg
Vitamin C 30mg 0.6mg 3mg 10.8mg

[VIDEO] 6,800 Bottles Of Wine Crash To The Floor After Shelves Collapse

A travesty has occurred at Superior Discount Liquors in Sheboygan, Wisconsin. Wine fanatics, such as myself, might find this video troublesome to watch due to the large amount of wine that is now covering the floor in this large liquor store.

The shelf, 78ft long, suddenly became detached from the wall that it was anchored to, and the weight alone made it topple, bringing all of the bottles down as well. Although the managers at the store are claiming to be shocked and dumbfounded as to why this occurred, I would be willing to bet the fact that the shelves are 31 years old, was a contributing factor.

‘It just kept rolling away from the wall from front to back, and I was in disbelief. I didn’t know what to do or say. The whole thing only took 10 seconds,’ employee Peter Guske told a local ABC station.

Surprisingly, the employees got to cleaning up this sea of wine and didn’t even have to close down the store to do so. I wouldn’t want to risk staining my clothes and go into this store, I’d just stop by the local BevMo and get my wine. At least now they have a reason to order some new shelves.

Hollywood ReporterEarly reports out of Belgium and Holland Thursday are claiming that six people were killed and others injured as a tent collapsed at an annual music festival called Pukkelpop.

The BBC is now reporting four were killed, details are still emerging as to number of dead and injured.

According to Holland’s Trouw.com, one of the tents where a band was playing was blown down after a storm, resulting in chaos and injuries.

Per Belgian radio station Studio Brussel, ambulances have been in and out of the festival and the remainder of today’s festival has been canceled.

The sudden storm Thursday caused the Chateau Tent, where American band Smith Westerns played, or were about to play, to collapse. The band wrote on Twitter: “Stage collapsed max almost got crushed by the tress, I hope pukkelpop has insurance bc all our [stuff] is broke.”

A brief but fierce storm produced strong winds and large hail which brought down trees, per reports. Additionally, a sound tower beside the main stage came loose.

The annual festival’s lineup this year includes many American bands, including 30 Seconds to Mars, Foo Fighters and Rise Against.

Jared Leto tweeted that “four stages were down” and that it was “still raining” Thursday from the festival. “Be safe,” he added.
