Nothing helps mass-produce bread like Ammonium Sulfate. Unfortunately, nothing fertilizers soil or kills bugs like it either.

2) Silicone Oil


Chicken McNuggets are full of dimethylpolysiloxane, a silicone oil that is often used for making contact lenses and other medical items.

5) Propylene Glycol

Propylene glycol is an organic chemical compound that can be found anti-freeze, e-cigarettes, and the greens fast food restaurants typically use in their meals.

6) Prescription Drugs

Anti-depressants as well as other prescription drugs are said to be added to the feed of the chickens fast food restaurants use for their poultry items.

7) Dimethylpolysiloxane


You'll find this in almost any fried fast food menu item and also in Silly Putty.

8) Carminic Acid
