Hamburger Patties

Aside from the fact that one fast-food hamburger patty can contain meat from more than 1,000 individual cows, a study looked at meat from eight different hamburger brands and found that actual skeletal muscle made up only 2.1 percent to 14.8 percent of the patty. So what else is in there? Connective tissue, blood vessels, nerves, adipose tissue, plant material, cartilage, bone, and in two hamburgers, intracellular parasites. And don’t forget about the now-famous pink slime, which has now been largely eliminated from fast food but contains cow intestines, connective tissue and other parts, and other unpleasantness.
