Secrets The Food Industry Doesn’t Want You To Know

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
would like people to know? Share your thoughts with me
in the comments down below! Thanks for watching.


  1. This video is so full of half-truths, misinformation, and just plain stupid errors. I’m rather disinclined to believe complex information from someone who doesn’t even know the difference between a pesticide and an herbicide.

  2. Be vegetarian. Forest including the recent amazon was burned to grow more farm for meat mostly.
    We dont need meat in 2019…there are so many options. Our habits are killing the planet. Its so fucking sad. Stop meat productions.

  3. cheese sticks? It's mozzarella with breading. That is definitely real cheese lol… I make mine with block mozzarella and egg roll wraps

  4. We got roundup banned from this country, yet a lot of people still somehow get and use it.
    also at the last of the courts we had against the company they actually got sentenced a fine high enough to actually take them out of business and their poisons were banned in netherlands(this was quite a few years back). however after changing their name in Netherlands and paying the right people who care only for their own money they suddenly didn't have to pay anymore and almost everything about the lawsuit, the fine and the ban got hidden.

    I just sought some things back and it was in 2017(less long ago than I thought).

  5. luckly the cows around where(within around 10km) I live walk in fields however thes are mostly on biologic farms and are milk cows. the only problem is that the current duch government actually takes action and passes laws against biological farmers. these are mostly laws that megafarmers won't really notice something from, but which destroy biological farmers. laws such as until the amount of X(cow in this case) are halved every farmer may never have more animals then the month before(baby and you animals count) and every month their amount of animals should decrease by one(this law is based on a actual law here). also (actual law) farmers must keep young cows for atleast certain amounts of months. while this doesn't really affect the megafarmers who have around 8hectares(8 sockerfields) of land with around 20000 cows on that won't really notice anything because 20000-1=19999. also they don't know their animals so it is no big deal to them. while for bio farmers here you are talking about a land seize of around 6 hectares and 30 to 40 cows on it. in their case they would lose around half of their animals in a year and if some cows give birth within those few months from eachother they lose even more. numbers are for explaination purposes but mostly based on actual farmers in Netherlands. also the larger farmers get governmental financial support while biological farmers get to hear there is no budged from that.

  6. Root cause of All the cruelty in slaughtering animals?? The demand created by the Non-Vegetarians. There is no two ways about it.

  7. He doesn't talk about the meat being injected with about 10% water, to make it weigh more, ever notice how much juice comes out of your meat when you cook it!!!

  8. Stop slaughtering animals! We are not carnivorous by species. Beams and pasts, lentils, clever use of spices, citrus vegis, this is a way cheaper and healthy alternative. But the brains of the majority of humans have been conditioned, and every 15 minutes 500 feet of the rainforest is burned for corn. Animal feed, and that corn gasoline. It's such a waste, if you don't believe me educate yourself and take a sociology class at your local community college.

  9. All those Antibiotics why do you think Americans are so Fat.they give these Animals these hormones to make them bigger,an then we eat it.
    Glade I grow my own harvest my own meats.

  10. Dear Be Amazed,
    Not a poem.
    I think we lost our way
    Perhaps, we may realize one day
    When our flesh peels from bones
    How will these businesses pay loans
    Gross you say as we might
    The last of us, our final bite
    Alarm the choice for eyes bright call
    Prosperity instilled, or the maul
    Don Suiters

  11. It’s fucking disgusting human beings eat and in America it’s probably one of the worst place if individuals don’t start waking up and understand the killing us with McDonald’s Burger King Wendy’s Chinese food they are destroying us and our children I want to the Philippines even though it’s a poor country the food tasted way better healthier the pork all the meats just something different about the food it’s disgusting what we’re doing here in the United States and Europe they don’t even do that they’re killing us people wake up

  12. And people we need to stick together and try to eat meat only once to twice a week let’s get these animals if a shot we all have to live on this earth let’s stop being so selfish

  13. Hey i live in indonesia. The shrimp is definitely not true. We're just like any other country, not all farms are dirty or clean. It's depend on the farmer, not the nation. We also have lots of clean n hygienic farmer and also bad and nasty farm at some area but THATS NOT MAKE ALL SHRIMP FROM INDONESIA ARE DIRTY JUST LIKE WHAT U JUST SAID.

    You better do some research before creating video or u could ended up in a sue case at any time. Please be more careful!

  14. Everyone who works for Monsanto and Bayer should be sentenced to death via scaphism

    And all sugars (cough) sweeteners are not the same. Use the right terminology.

  15. Its all about Greed.
    There are three things I despise more then anything.
    2. Selfishness
    3. Jealousy

  16. WAKE UP AMERICA and see the truth what you are eating buy your food from your local farmer we are here to help you eat better

  17. Who else would like to see a top 10 of people who created a free world with electromagnetism
    Perpetual motion machines
    Homemade water wells rain catchers
    Organic gardening back to eden
    Homemade furnaces smelting
    Growing permaculture ecosystems like mineral gardens copper and alum, natural fish farms, and vegetable garden chickens and organic phalaris grass fed milk cows and bee hives
    Homemade metal milling lathe machines
    Earthen homes Roman concrete mortar
    Natural medicines

  18. Your first point alone is ridiculous. I lived and worked on a family farm and antibiotics are used in the first most crucial part in the begging of the animals life is the first week of it being there. By the time animals are sent to the butcher the antibiotics are not in their system anymore.

  19. All this idiot said around the 4 min mark was Monsanto spray was killing bees, I stopped watching it there. Where is your proof? Of course Monsanto is going to say their spray is not killing bees because there is no proof!!! Then this idiot said with their track record can you believe them! Well, who can believe your lies without any proof? Stupid people believing this! I hope Monsanto sues you!

  20. The sugar list… They're required to list the nutritional value of their foods, if you think a food has sugar in it… Check the label? Then check the ingredients.

  21. as soon as the bullshit about Monsanto started, I unsubscribed.
    Look, if you're going to spread misinformation and bullshit, you don't deserve to have your video watched by anyone.

  22. All thanks to the greedy American Corporations. Today, America doesn't make or produce any products except information. So Americans sell their know-how, in this case, food gimmicks to companies throughout the world. Greedy Americans!

  23. Your next video should be, “Secret biases and misinformation the amateur reporting community doesn’t want you to know about.”

  24. So in other words Monsanto is the company responsible for the diminishing bee numbers throughout the world.

    I would even bet these Parasitic Jews created the Parasitic bug which feasts on Honey bees in their hives.
    We really are doomed unless stand up and dispose of these idiots playing mother nature.

  25. The sows in the crates is horrendous. They can't do that with feeder pigs because high stress levels can actually foul the meat at slaughter time. Some facilities even have warning lights to inform caretakers global noise levels have risen past acceptable levels. But for poor sows only there to pump out units, the sky they''ll never see is the limit.

  26. Sue Monsanto out of business. They’ve bankrupted and poisoned hundreds of thousands. And stop using anything with Nutrasweet!!its linked to the rise in autoimmune diseases like krohns and MS. When heated above 80f as in coffee or soda carried in a hot truck it’s chemistry mimicks the same as wood alcohol.

  27. Cows in america(probably), other countries: abusive, rape and overproduction
    Cows in india, nepal: treat them like a god

  28. The truth is everything is contaminated. From the air we breath to the food we eat. Nature treat us like we treat it. Simple as that. Plastic is thrown into the ocean for many years, including all the garbage you can think of. Now, shrimps and a lot of sea floor creatures are contaminated with plastic in their flesh. We eat those…

    For people saying we need to go Vegan, I would agree if you base your decision on animal cruelty, but not if you base it on contamination. The recent studies have find out that most veges and fruits contain pesticide, derivative hormones interferers, and so on… The reason? To make the fruits and veges more insects resistant, they cross 'breed' plants base on insect not touching them or less. So we get more and more 'naturally resistant plants' that are bad for your intestinal tract, irritant, inflamatory, full of immunitary affecting substances…and so on. Wonders why childreen are 'Food intolerant' more and more? Look no further. How do you fight this? You can try growing your own food but for our busy lifestyle, it is asking too much. We need to come with other ways. There is not many.

    Population have to stop increasing, in fact, we are already too many. We just cannot continue deforestation to create more ressource growing soils. This have to stop. We must stop IMPROVING CROPS, it is becoming TOXIC to human as it is to insects!!! it cause auto-immune problems!

  29. It has a low impact on blood sugar and helps to increase satiety and decrease appetite. In Aztec times, the agave plant syrup was also used to treat wounds because of its anti-microbial attributes. You can visit for “healthy recipes sweetened with agave nectar

  30. those poor pigs..WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE? how can anyone do that to animals? why? why ? why? it is animal abuse and cruelty… is that not against the law? I am so so so sorry piggies…

  31. I am so sorry chickens i am so sorry cows… how can anyone do these things to them? you would have to be Godless to do those things…. Why are people allowed to do these things? how can anyone toss a baby chicken in a grinder…. terrible terrible people .. i wish they would line up all those people who do these things to animals and the people who allow them to do it and show the world their faces…maybe even stone them and take away all their property and animals and farm them in the right way… an animal who is going to become food should live a good life and when killed for meat, they should never see it coming.. and all the other animals shouldn't be allowed to see it happen either… they do not mind laying their lives down, but they do care about how they are treated and how they are killed…

  32. Mansanto sued, put farmers in prison and stole their land, just because they tried to save real seeds. Gmo's are a death trap around the world. Many farmers have committed suicide, around the world.

  33. Oh okay. I am from indonesia and not all our seas are poluted. Thank you so much for blaming the thirld world country. Get your own shrimp then. Sucks

  34. Monsanto designs seeds are made specifically so pesticides don't have to be used. The whole reason behind that is because of how damaging Roundup is to crops themselves. I'm not trying to defend them by any means, as they've been responsible for many atrocities, but this video is not accurate on a lot of things. The talk about floors being cleaned every two years is based on a small number of farms, and not the practices of the majority. And those who do allow things to get that bad are fined, among other things depending on the severity, because that's clearly the only thing they care about. The damage that's neglected in this video, probably because it would contradict other claims made in the video, is the salmonella, cholera and other bacteria that ends up poisoning the ground water because when they regularly clean the floors, they just spray the solid waste on the ground with a water hose. The food industry does enough unsettling stuff without this kind of exaggeration. One thing is for sure, if people weren't so disconnected from where their food comes from, these companies wouldn't be necessary. Unfortunately, most would starve or steal if they had to be able to make their own food. With the amount of people who are incapable of even cooking a meal, they likely would be unable to grow their own food, much less butcher their meat.

  35. Look, most of this stuff is known by the majority now right? I'm not going vegan over this information, but damn…it sure makes you think.

  36. They wondering why so many ppl getting cancer 🤬little baby’s , kids , teenagers getting cancer & parents going through so much heartache watching there baby’s slowly die & in so much pain , all thanks to gritty mfer’s worrying more about money than humans & don’t care who they kill or get deathly sick, to get that dirty blood money…. there’s a special place in hell for heartless evil gritty mfer’s like these unhuman mfer’s

  37. Don’t understand how these mfers lay down at night & sleep, knowing what there doing to food & causing millions of ppl to die👿 ppl eating this shit & getting cancer, that these mfer’s are putting in food just so they can get richer🤬🖕🏼 ppl like this must not believe in god, bc god fearing humans have a heart & soul & wouldn’t want to hurt or cause sickness up on humans or anything with a heartbeat…. I would hate to be in these heartless assholes shoes….. bc there going straight to hell…… this is what Jesus was speaking of in the Bible, blood money…. not earning money you don’t deserve, like cashing in on someone’s death, making money dishonest, & making money, millions of dollars by causing death & sickness on humans just to fill your gritty pockets 🤬 so many ppl got evil in them…
