yeah, not breaded, but they coat in a rub of theirs that's mildly spicy and it is so much better than boring old chicken breasts. they have a deal here on mondays: buy 8 pieces get 8 free so i was all over it today.

the nutrition facts per the popeyes website is for 2 tenders: 130 calories, 3g fat, 3g carbs, 25g proteinz

So you sat there and woofed down 16 tenders? Seriously? 2080 calories? 400 grams of protein? Curious, how much was the sodium for the 16 tenders?

Most restaurants wash the food and generally make sure it's clean before serving ;)

you may not care about your long term health, but if someone is going to make advice of what is supposedly good to eat, even though the food item is labeled as 0g transfat, no sugar, etc etc, people should know the truth.

Lol, c'mon bro, there's nothing wrong with transfat, sugar etc. in moderation. OP is not telling people to live off Popeye's naked tenders, he pointed out a healthier option when eating out.

Every post you make is downing "X" food because it's not 100% natural, or has 2 g sugar, or minimal transfat.

prove me that unnatural transfat is beneficial in anyway....

You made the assertion of risk and thus you have the burden of proof. That's the way it works!

That's just silly.

That said, there is an ADI and NOEL for blood lead level, by the way. I'm not suggesting deliberate ingestion, but there is background level lead in many water sources, for example. Just so you know...

He never said he ate all 16 in one sitting...he didn't even say he ate all 16 by himself!

Pretty sure the sodium is included in the cost of the chicken tenders.

I can understand someone trying to limit MSG and transfat. However, when you say "powderized glass" you lose all credibility.

Silicon Dioxide in Food
Silicon is an indispensable part of the food that we eat daily. As silicon plays a major role in development of the bones, it becomes necessary to include silicon food sources in our diet. In order to maintain healthy strong bones and joints, silicon dioxide in foods is very much essential. Along with calcium and vitamins, silicon dioxide is equally important for proper bone growth, strength and density. Deficiency of silicon can cause osteoarthritis and arthritis. Another important health benefit of silicon is that it minimizes aluminum effects on the body, thereby preventing Alzheimer's disease.

In which case you are trolling...touché.

lead can be filtered out.. to a point yes. water cannot be avoided for essential living, but your food choice can avoid added man made products.

again, we follow the idea of avoiding water with lead dumped into it....

wikipedia


Silica is used primarily in the production of glass for windows, drinking glasses, beverage bottles, and many other uses. The majority of optical fibers for telecommunications are also made from silica. It is a primary raw material for many whiteware ceramics such as earthenware, stoneware, porcelain, as well as industrial Portland cement.

Along with calcium and vitamins, silicon dioxide is equally important for proper bone growth, strength and density. Deficiency of silicon can cause osteoarthritis and arthritis. Another important health benefit of silicon is that it minimizes aluminum effects on the body, thereby preventing Alzheimer's disease.



haling finely divided crystalline silica dust in very small quantities (OSHA allows 0.1 mg/m3) over time can lead to silicosis, bronchitis, or cancer, as the dust becomes lodged in the lungs and continuously irritates them, reducing lung capacities. (Silica does not dissolve over time.) This effect can be an occupational hazard for people working with sandblasting equipment, products that contain powdered crystalline silica and so on. Children, asthmatics of any age, allergy sufferers, and the elderly (all of whom have reduced lung capacity) can be affected in much less time. Amorphous silica, such as fumed silica is not associated with development of silicosis[38], but may cause irreversible lung damage in some cases[39]. Laws restricting silica exposure with respect to the silicosis hazard specify that the silica is both crystalline and dust-forming.

In respects other than inhalation, pure silicon dioxide is inert and harmless. Clean silicon dioxide yields no fumes and is insoluble in vivo. It is indigestible, with no nutritional value and no toxicity.[citation needed] When silica is ingested orally, it passes unchanged through the gastrointestinal (GI) tract, exiting in the feces, leaving no trace behind.[citation needed] Small pieces of silicon dioxide are also harmless[citation needed] as they do not obstruct the GI tract, if they are not jagged enough to scathe its lining.

A study which followed subjects for 15 years found that higher levels of silica in water appeared to decrease the risk of dementia. The study found that with an increase of 10 milligram-per-day of the intake of silica in drinking water, the risk of dementia dropped by 11%.[40]

So, you are basically posting something that goes against everything you said, and then try to discredit it by posting that there may or may not be a rat study (which can't be carried over to humans) which shows adverse effects without a source to back it up?

Yeaaaaah, no.

Here comes the Math Police, LOL. 16 tenders would be half of those numbers you listed. Although probably high in sodium, not a bad choice for fast food.

Eating powderized glass every once in a while isn't going to kill you.

My vote is for Rosa's on Taco Tuesday- any 3 tacos, beans, rice, 3 flour tortillas for $3.33.

I might not be right all the time but its good to always check your sources, I like to raise awareness where people can read on their own and determine if it is beneficial or not.
