Secrets The Food Industry Doesn’t Want You To Know

– [Announcer] From marketing
tricks to shady practices, the food industry has a lot of secrets. But they just want you to think about their yummy products, nothing else. Well, it’s important to know
about the things you eat. Whether you love eating meat, or choose not to, isn’t
really the question. Here are some crucial facts you should know about the food you eat. – Amazing! – [Announcer] Number 10. A lot of antibiotics go into meat. Did you know that 80% of the antibiotics produced in the world are fed to animals? Most of them don’t actually
go to human beings! That’s what a study in 2011 revealed. Now, you might think
that’s not all that bad. It probably makes your meat
safe and healthy, right? Well, unfortunately,
that’s not the full story. The actual reason is that antibiotics help generate rapid growth artificially, which makes sure that
the livestock is as big as they can be. Unfortunately, this can
have harmful consequences for the world. That’s because the overuse of antibiotics is really dangerous. It can help the rise of super bacterias, which are resistant to antibiotics. And that’s not good for
anyone, cattle or people. Number nine, Food
Companies Are Hiding Sugar Nowadays, it’s pretty
much common knowledge that you should avoid
sugar as much as possible. It’s bad for your teeth, it
contains no essential nutrients, it can help you develop
diabetes and all sort of other problems. If you want to live a healthy
life, you know it’s all about consuming it in moderation. To put it in perspective, we
actually eat in just eight days the same amount of sugar
people from the 1700s ate over an entire year. Surely that’s not a good thing. Well, food companies don’t want you to stop buying their
products because they have too much sugar. So, they devised a sneaky little solution. Some companies hide the
true amount of sugar inside of a product by mixing
up different ingredients. How so? Well, here are some of the
label names you’ll see used instead of sugar. High-fructose corn syrup, cane crystals, dextrose, evaporated cane juice, agave nectar or fruit juice concentrate. All of these are basically
sugar, just with different names. This way, companies makes
sure that sugar doesn’t appear at the top of the ingredients
list on the back of the box. So, most people don’t actually
realize how much actual sugar they’re actually consuming. Next time you’re in the supermarket, try checking the ingredients
list and see how many of these you can spot in the wild! Number Eight, Monsanto’s Secrets Of all the food corporations out there, Monsanto sometimes feels
like they’re gunning for the title of the worst. The list of things they
probably wish to keep hidden is pretty extensive. Monsanto was one of the first companies to genetically modify
a plant cell, in 1983. It started producing
genetically modified crops that were resistant to their
own herbicide, called Round-Up. These seeds were marketed as a safer and healthier alternative
to other competitors. With that, Monsanto took over the market. Most farmers now use Monsanto’s products. The seeds that they sell, however, contain a Monsanto-owned
patent in their genes. So only Monsanto can say who
gets to plant their seeds or who doesn’t. Not all farmers went with
these new crops, however. Some decided to stay with their old seeds. There’s one problem, though. Monsanto has actually sued many farmers, accusing them of having
used their GMO-seeds without permission. In virtually all the cases, however, those farmers didn’t
use the seeds willingly. Unwanted seeds actually
flew into their crops, from neighbors farms who
used Monsanto’s seeds. Worst of all, these seeds
would actually destroy the organic farmer’s crop. So, many farmers had their crops destroyed and then were driven to bankruptcy by having to defend themselves in court. That’s not all! Another little secret
Monsanto wants to keep hidden? They aren’t a big fan of bees. Because these genetically
modified crops have been created to self-pollinate, they don’t
need bees to do that for them. In fact, many speculate that bees are actually getting in the company’s way because they’re a way
to break their monopoly by naturally creating foods
outside of the company’s patent. However, when bees try to
pollinate a GM flower or plant, it gets poisoned and dies, mostly because of
Monsanto’s pesticide roundup which is used in conjunction
with their GM crops. Monsanto, of course, denies all this. But, with their track record,
can you really believe them? Number seven, Your Shrimps
Are Dirty, in a lot of ways. Did you know that most of
the shrimps sold worldwide are imported from countries
like Thailand or Indonesia? They’re grown in a type of farm. Which are actually
crowded and filthy pools, full of antibiotics,
disinfectants, and pesticides. Most pesticides used, in
fact, are actually banned in places like the US. These pools are so dense
and dirty that many shrimps actually die in it. Not only that, many prawn farms slice open and cut off the eyes of female shrimps to make them breed
faster as it causes them to develop mature ovaries. This practice, called eyestalk ablation happens in almost all prawn
hatcheries around the world. It has been reported that the eyestalks fully regenerate after a few months, but scientists agree that this they do show traumatized reactions when
this treatment is performed. That’s not all the problems
with shrimp farms, however. This type of farmed
shrimp also causes harm to the environment. Plus, many of these productions
actually use slave labor. Next time you’re feeling
hungry for some shrimp, maybe first check where it comes from. Number six, Many Cheese
Products Aren’t Cheese Who doesn’t love cheese? It’s delicious and it goes
on pretty much everything. But, if you look closely,
the cheese you’re eating might not actually be cheese. It’s all on the label. If a product is labeled
as a cheese product, that’s because it isn’t real cheese. Large-scale dairy producers
actually replace milk with processed milk concentrate
or whey protein concentrate in many of their products. Why, to save money, of course. However, as a result,
you can’t actually call the end product cheese. Hence the term, cheese product. Some examples of cheese products include, processed sliced cheese, cheese sticks and some shredded cheese brands. That doesn’t happen just
with cheese, though. While many products claim to be one thing on the front of their boxes, that’s often just a marketing name. The legal name usually
appears in smaller print, somewhere else on the box. If you want to always be
sure of what you’re eating, always read the back of the box. Number five, Pregnant Pigs
Are Confined To Tiny Crates Pregnant pigs don’t get preferential treatment, unfortunately. Millions and millions of
pregnant pigs are actually kept in very small cages, usually
called gestation crates. These crates are so small that the pigs can’t even turn around. They also have slatted concrete floors. Why is that, you ask? So that all the waste that the pigs eject just slides down to pits
that are underneath them. They spend four months
inside these crates, their full pregnancy. At the end of it, these pigs
usually suffer from ulcers, abscesses and sores. It’s such harsh living
conditions that many countries have actually banned this
practice, like the UK and Sweden. Number four, They’re
Selling You Fake Fiber. Nowadays, many doctors and
experts extol the virtues of including fiber in your diet. They say it’s great for
your digestive system and overall health. But really, food companies
just saw an opportunity to make people buy more
products by jumping on the fiber bandwagon. Some basically skipped the
whole actually putting fiber in their products thing. In many cases, the
products that are labeled as high in fiber are
actually misleading you. Those products are filled with fake fiber-synthetic products. You can technically, and more importantly, legally call them fiber. But they are far from the fiber that will make you healthier. Quite the contrary, this fake fiber can cause bloating, gas and general gastrointestinal distress. Once again, it’s always
important to watch out for shoddy marketing
while in the supermarket. Number three, cows are now fed corn. And that’s not a good thing. It’s entirely unnatural
for cows to eat corn. They have evolved over thousands of years on a diet that consisted of eating grass. The process of digesting
corn is unnatural to them. If not done correctly,
it can kill the animal. Especially if they aren’t being fed a lot of antibiotics along with the corn. That’s not all of it, though. There’s a whole E.coli
problem associated with this. For those who don’t remember,
E.coli is a bacteria that can, in some cases, be deadly. Well, cows actually produce
a lot more of E.coli in their gut when they’re fed corn. This is poses a huge risk
in terms of contamination of the meat we eat. How do they handle this problem, you ask? To combat this, they often
treat beef with ammonia, to try and kill the bacteria. Yes, the same ammonia that can
be found in floor cleaners. It might be in your ground beef. It can also comprise of up
to 15% of fast-food burgers. And it’s all completely legal! On top of all of this, there’s
still something to be said for the treatment of cows, who don’t live a very
great life before going to the slaughterhouse. They live in stressful conditions, produce way more milk than they naturally would in the wild and some
veals are even saddled with heavy chains for their entire lives. Overall, it seems that cows
have a pretty rough life. Number two, Male Chicks Are GroundUp Alive Companies in the egg industry don’t have a use for male chicks. After all, they can’t lay eggs. They aren’t used for reproduction, plus, they can’t be bred for meat, for example, because egg-laying chickens are different from the type used for meat. That’s why, as soon as they hatch, male chicks are sent
directly into the grinder. Another shameful little secret
from the poultry industry is that the label free
range doesn’t really mean much when applied to chickens. When we talk about free range, most people might picture
happy chickens roaming around beautiful green
pastures, living freely. That’s only really accurate
for organic chickens, but they only equate to
around 3% of all produced. In reality, so-called free-range
chickens are still raised in giant, overcrowded sheds. Free-range chickens get
access to the outdoors, but since there are no
limits on flock size, many are still so cramped together they can’t even spread their wings. They also live in filthy conditions, with manure-laden flooring
that’s only cleaned every two or four years. Number one, Chickens Have Really Changed We’ve actually been shaping
the way chickens grow and look like for quite some time. This is so companies
can make as much meat, and hence profit, as possible. Intensive breeding turned these animals into what we could call super breeds, made to grow faster and produce more meat. We selectively bred them to
accentuate preferable traits. For example, most people like white meat. So chicken breasts increased
significantly over the years. The breasts of a modern meat chicken, also called a broiler chicken, is 80 percent larger than of
chickens from 60 years ago. Wild chickens of old actually
looked more like pheasants than the massive ones we have today. Take a chicken from 1925, for example. It usually weighed around 1.2 kilos before it was slaughtered
at the age of 112 days old. Nowadays they weigh around 2.6 kilos, and are slaughtered after only 47 days. That’s because we control
all aspects of their lives. They live a strictly-regimented life, in controlled and confined environments. Chickens are usually
raised in close quarters so that they don’t waste energy. That makes them grow faster and get bigger in a shorter period of time. But those conditions
are also very stressful. That’s the reason most
farmers elect to clip or burn the beaks from their chickens. This is done to prevent the chickens from pecking each other to death. All of this can show a
side to farming that might not be pretty to look at,
but is important to know. No matter if your next lunch
will be a good chicken sandwich or a tasty salad. Did something on this
list really shock you? Are there more secrets you

  1. Just be a vegetarian and have your own chickens or be a vegan ,then all the animals can live happy and healthy like us , give it a try!

  2. buy local products , you dont need meat in your diet , having too many people in the world will create this problem .

  3. we are our worst enemy , and governments dont give a f#ck about the human population. i think cardboard is food for the future. and where are the animal activist when they know the chicken chicks are being killed like that . our world is getting worse , i can see no future.

  4. purefid sugers a drug trigger the gulmate receptors the more you eat the more you feel hunger the effect is indirect but they abosrb directly spike and drop the bgl the cause of insuline torlrence or you body cells become underresponsive to insulin which ups the insulain output of the pankanrus which damages it output abilty or what know more simply as type diebites and frutose if consumed in high dosages partly converts to methoal a nero toxien and carcinogen because it is then converted to fermahylded hence the riseing link of cancer to obestity
    msg does the same thing on the gultamate receptors how they study obestey in animals and why dogs tend to over eat both food scrapes and dog food

    heres a screat suger and msg cause what some call food addiction

    and the body needs antioxdents more so now adays because of exposer rates

    and acidobacillus make amniona (converts lactos into lactic acid why milk spoils what ferments yogert what normal dies before eating in the days before the refragrator) it is waste prouduct so eating foods and supplments added to it it effect on the body is a laxtive and kill the fungi trush which caused by immune compermize which can caused by kemotherpy as well and thrush is what hiv denires think causes it

    also on the soap box chemotherpy causes septic shock and the main trement for that is striods to inhibit inflamation which also cause immune comprmize a week after so if your not better in a week your more likely to die and class of drugs that are more potent and lack that or any know sideeffect and have cause zero recorded deaths in 12,000 years and in the time it took to type this aleast one person died of chemo induced sideeffects it over counter but they leave it benafit off

    rip stacy mike and very long list of paintents iv treated medically as a emt who never there was a better option to that standerd treament modailty for lifethreating infections

    furth more the use steroids is used in everthing from the flu to chemo therpy to autoimmune to ebola for the aboved stated illnesses because they all kill by inflamation all there sypmtoms are inflamation even the fever inflamtion heats up if it all over you get a fever it a common misconception that are body induces that to fight a illness and the best tool know to humanity isnt used even though it otc

    can anyone geuss what it is?

    ps it treats bug bits/stings mosqutio bites posion ivy because that too is inflamation

    most illness is atleast partly inflamation why both steroids and the otc med are so useful
    cancer isnt those are tumors

    type 2 diebites is pathological tolrence to suger
    type 1 is a genic disorder aka when you dont make insuline its more fatal your born with it people with that type can have bgls in the thounds…..

    also the only document effect of oxytocen the love drug to some is that its a antioxdent

    and pure o2 incress the number of oxdative componds

    what anti oxdent does is block componds from reacting with protines like your cell walls or other compounds like dna when they react with dna they cause mutations as the damage passes on to the cell that replaces it every 24 hours if not cancer the body typical kills it thru immune fuctions simlarly to how the body fights viruses there call freeradicals they carry a ion charge that zaps those compounds simlerly to how ionzing radation does there basicaly radation in a chemical form…..

  5. I'm so sad.. If we look closely to the source of bad things. There are always people that obsessed to gain more profitable income :'(
    Does not care of how their actions impacted the world in short or longer terms.

  6. Just about 10. Sure there is usage of anti-biotics in meat which can cause our body to become immune to diseases, causing the rise ofsuper bacteria but has anyone not ever heard of phage therapy lmao.

  7. Sugar is literally made out of glucose and fructose lol. Glucose fuels our body. "Avoid sugar they say."
    Even extremely organic fruits that is not GMO contains glucose and fructose.

  8. Poor animals! Treat them better like on a normal country farm!
    poor baby chicks! YOU COULD HAVE AT LEAST KILLED THEM FIRST! Th e people who do this are cruel. They don't care about the pain.

  9. Everything deals with greed. Greedy, and Selfish people needs to be stopped. Those animals shouldn't be abused and treated that way. That's disgusting. For shame. Dishonored your family and to the human race. Plus, putting sugar and putting different substance act like sugar. Sugar is bad for the body. Does the FDA cares about people getting sick? Putting chemicals and dyes in food can kill people. That's murder. Stop making crappy food. Grow your own food and make food that's organic more affordable for people. These companies are getting away with murder.

  10. Bees or not going to die from Roundup, Glyphosate Roundup is a weed killer not an insect killer. Gsm and the Varroa mite.

  11. This all came from a person who ain't never raised any livestock and hot all his ingots from Google. It ain't really like this people. Other then Monsanto the rest of this was all bullshit.

  12. Is this meant to change my view on food, cause is being made a big deal out of for no reason, whatever puts food in the market and keeps people fed.

  13. More and more farmers are trying to raise and market grass finished beef. No corn, no antibiotics, and no ammonia. If you eat meat, seek these people out, pay the extra money, support the local farmers and be healthier!

  14. All of this is quite dumb, most animals are treated normally and most crops are non gmo. But there is nothing wrong with gmos except producing more crops per acre and allowing more people to eat. All of this is marketing which is mostly lies.

  15. People! who don't want, world wide,, ask and receive, valuing Gods unseen gifts, more than what is seen ; will want, what they are complaining about. Don't you get it?

  16. Antibiotics are also given to factory farmed animals because they live in such horrific conditions they are always sick

  17. What about the evil behind nestle?? One of the largest companies in the world. Stealing the worlds water, sucking rivers and reservoirs dry and suing towns plus indigenous people that try to say no more

  18. Listen bucko… please go and actually research the "pregnant pigs" thing some more. those boxes prevent boars from trying to mount the sows and accidentally crushing the unborn piglets. pigs are lazy creatures and will often not get up when hearing her own piglets squealing, so the sows often crush their piglets.

    Whats next? the dangers of hospital beds? why your shower is so small? the suffering of knives and forks in the cutlery trays designed to stop them from mating?

    Stop spreading this BS… stupid people can't think for themselves… this is why we have antivaxers

  19. Just want to let you know that all corn is GMO. It is impossible to eat non-GMO or organic corn as it just doesn't exist.

  20. Wake up people! The fact that science has proven animals that are stressed pass on a great deal of acids and really nasty by products into their meat should be a giant red flag to us all. Let alone the antibiotics and other toxins that are in everything from bread to veggies! Home made meals are best and taking the time to shop carefully for your family is crucial. Stop buying the cheap meat and yes spend your money on Real Food. Non gmo only for my household. #MonsantoIsEvil

  21. Then they say in the bible that God made animals to be eaten lol, that to me is ridiculous and why i'm not religious, and a bunch of religious people love to eat animals and feel no remorse, makes you think a lot.

  22. I am a beekeeper, my honey bees do not touch plants that they suppose to pollinate because they are hybrids and made sterile! …. they don’t even touch lavender and cherries if hybrids

  23. Proactive measures:

    #1 Do not consume anything outside of U.S.
    #2 Do not consume anything with a label
    #3 Buy local produce
    #4 Buy local meats that are grass fed
    #5 Replace meats with protein from plants. Some plain Greek yogurts provide a lot of protein.
    #6 Plant and grow your own food. Use pots or buckets. Good for apartments and small areas.
    #7 Do not consume fast foods
    #8 Prepare your own food
    #9 Eat to nourish, not for pleasure
    #10 Do not drink milk
    #11 Do not drink soda's
    #12 Make all meals simple, yet contain protein…carbs…healthy fats.

    Feel free to ad to list.

  24. U.s. of America is a f*cked up corporation 😢 everything here is fake & f*cked up, just made to look pretty…😞

  25. Your food is only better than our food if you have the backbone to raise, feed, hydrate and slaughter the shit yourself.

  26. If you let your government feed you then you'll eat whatever the fuck they want to feed you. Btw we're america, there's alot of fat mouthes to feed. Feeding people by the "organic" process costs just as much and takes just as long. Therefor… it's not possible.
