Low Fat Chocolate?? Scientists May Have Just Found The Holy Grail With New Electrical Trick!

Filed under: FoodScience!GIFsFood PornViral: News

This is the most delicious news you'll hear all day!

Lowering the fat content in chocolate has been a real challenge for food scientists, as it takes a certain fat percentage for the liquid to be handled during production.

But according to a study at Philadelphia's Temple University, a simple electrical trick might remove some of that necessity.

Apparently when you run the liquid chocolate through an electrical field, the chunks tend to bond into chains, leading to a smoother liquid — meaning it may not need so much fat.

According to researchers, it should now be easy to remove 10%, possibly even 20% of the fat from processed chocolate — without losing any taste!

The study was partially funded by Mars — makers of Snickers, Milky Way, M&Ms, Twix, & more — so we may see reduced fat content in a LOT of popular candy in the near future.

For now, the lower fat chocolate still needs to pass more tests — for texture, nutrition information, and longevity in storage.

But with demand so high, we're guessing the process will go smoothly…

Rush Limbaugh's Response To Harambe The Gorilla's Shooting Is So Mind-Bogglingly Dumb, We Had To Share It

no title

You ever hear something so stupid, you have to share it with everyone you know just to sort of disperse it? So you aren't taking the full brunt of the idiocy?

That's how we feel about Rush Limbaugh's response to the tragic death of Harambe the Gorilla.

The endangered animal was shot and killed by zookeepers to protect a 4-year-old child who fell into its enclosure.

Nope. He's angry at people who believe in evolution. He said on Tuesday:

Science is crazy!

The International Olympic Committee announced on Friday that 23 athletes from six different countries have tested positive for blood doping, and that a disciplinary commission has been called to review and hand out penalties.

Sounds pretty straightforward, no? Well… until you learn that these 23 athletes' positive tests came from blood they sampled four years ago at the 2012 London Olympics!!

The IOC keeps athletes' blood and urine samples on file for ten years after each Games specifically so that they can be reanalyzed later on as drug testing becomes more advanced.

And, yes, positive tests — even a decade after the initial sample was given — can lead to sanctions, disqualifications, loss of medals, and banishment from future games!

In these nearly-two dozen athletes' cases, the punishment is only just beginning, according to IOC Prez Thomas Bach, who released a statement about the positive tests (below):

Fast Food Burgers Discovered To Contain Traces Of Rat And HUMAN DNA! Read The Disgusting Report!

Filed under: Icky Icky PooFoodScience!Scary!SafetyViral: News

It's pretty hard to resist chomping down on a nice, juicy burger, but this new study will definitely make you lose your appetite.

Food testing company Clear Labs has discovered that some burgers contain traces of rat and even human DNA!

From a sample of 258 restaurant burgers, researchers found three burgers with rat DNA, and one frozen vegetarian burger with human DNA! Yuck!

As for the presence of human DNA, the report states:

"The most likely cause is hair, skin, or fingernail that was accidentally mixed in during the manufacturing process."

Still gross, but not Soylent Green gross.

The research also found there are "gaps" in food safety and quality standards, as the report continues:

"What many consumers don't know is that some amounts of human and rat DNA may fall within an acceptable regulatory range."

Aside from the foreign DNA, other shocking findings concluded that almost a quarter of vegetarian burgers had different ingredients than advertised on the label — two veggie burgers contained beef, and one black bean burger had NO black beans in it! Ugh!

If that's not enough to be nervous about, 4.3 percent of the burgers contained pathogenic DNA — which can cause food poisoning.

Oh, and also 12 burgers in the study contained over 100 more calories than advertised.

WHERE IS YOUR BEEF NOW!?

Researchers from Slovenia discovered the Madagascan Darwin's bark spider performs oral sex up to 100 times when mating with a female!

A new study noted that the species has a "rich sexual repertoire," which includes fun things like sexual cannibalism and genital mutilation — and performing extensive cunnilingus sessions!

While this might not seem like a big deal, scientists were quick to point out oral sex rarely occurs in the animal kingdom.

No wonder everything is so violent! Ha!
