It would be fair to assume that there are three ingredients in McDonald’s French fries: potatoes, oil, and salt. But if you assumed that you’d be far from correct.

Back in 2012 McDonald’s began a transparency campaign in an attempt to create a more health-conscious and consumer-conscious image of their corporation. As a result of this campaign, the company has made their ingredient lists and processing techniques available to the public on their website. You’re probably not likely to be very surprised to discover that their fries do not just contain potatoes, oil and salt. In fact it turns out that there are 17 ingredients in MickeyD’s French fries! Not counting the pesicides on the potatoes, of course! This includes GMO Canola oil and Hydrogenated soybean oil, and TBHQ, a petroleum-based, butane-like (yes, that’s lighter fluid!) ingredient used as a preservative, that has been linked to asthma, skin conditions, hormone disruption, cancer and damage to DNA.

Watch This Video & You’ll Never Eat McDonald’s French Fries Again

In this video, Michael Pollan, author of the new book, Cooked, details the horrifying story about how McDonald’s French fries are made. Skip to 3:10 in the video — you’ll be shocked.

McDonald’s insists on using Russet Burbank Potatoes. Russet Burbank Potatoes are unusually long and difficult to grow. In addition these potatoes must have no blemishes at all. This is difficult because Russet Burbank Potatoes commonly suffer from ‘Net Necrosis’ which causes unwanted spots and lines on the potatoes. McDonald’s refuses to buy any potatoes affected by Net Necrosis.

The only way to eliminate Net Necrosis is through the use of a pesticide called methamidophos (Monitor) “that is so toxic that the farmers who grow these potatoes in Idaho won’t venture outside and into their fields for five days after they spray.”

When McDonald’s is ready to harvest their potatoes, they have to put them in giant atmospheric controlled sheds the size of football stadiums because they are not edible for six weeks. “They have to off gas all the chemicals in them.”

Don’t Forget Pesticides on the Potatoes!

According to the USDA’s Pesticide Data Program, 37 different pesticides have been found on conventional potatoes. And out of these: 7 are known carcinogens, 12 are suspected hormone disruptors, 9 are neurotoxins, and 6 are developmental or reproductive toxins! Read more:
