Water. Salt. Chicken.
These are 3 common substances consumed by many. Each in its own right is considered healthy, albeit it moderation. Add the trio together. . . now we have a problem.
The practice of “altering” food has become an all too common practice. From the outright cruelty of adding cement to cattle to the less harsh but costly non-less practice of pumping up chicken with salt water is taking billions of dollars out of American’s pocket in a most unethical way.
If you purchase a chicken, you may find that 15-20% of its weight is water! Often, your 7 pound chicken contains around 5 pounds of actual meat. Aside from the ethics, people are consuming significant amounts of salt. For many, this is an extremely unhealthy act.
An interesting article (http://www.foodandhealth.com/cpecourses/salt.php) points out the growing threat of salt toxicity.
Such practices need to be stopped. The more these practices are exposed, the greater likelihood for change.
And greater health!
