Subway Get the Yoga Mat out of my Bread!




Last week Jared Fogle, the iconic Subway spokesman discussed the recent controversy surrounding the restaurant's bread. It was recently revealed to contain the chemical azodicarbonamide, a "bleaching agent" that is also used to make yoga mats and shoe rubber. I don't know about you but the last time I cooked my yoga mat - it seemed okay.

"If you delved into it a little bit more and saw what it was, it was nothing. When it's cooked, it was fine," Fogle said.

Thank you Dr. Jared. Somehow hearing that it's not that big a deal from a person who has been getting paid to represent Subway for years is not very comforting. Why even interview this guy? It's like interviewing the Geico Gecko about a controversy with Geico. If it is so harmless, why is Subway working to get it out of their bread?


The scariest part is that Subway is probably the healthiest fast food in America. "Azodicarbonamide is of low acute toxicity, but repeated or prolonged contact may cause asthma and skin sensitization." This bread, yoga-mat chemical may be just fine all by its self, but mix it up with everything else we are subjected to a great big question mark! The bigger question is why was plastic foam put into bread in the first place. Yes, it's a preservative. So is formaldehyde. Are they going to put that in next? Unless you are willing to eat twigs and berries, you are gonna find all kinds of chemicals in all kinds of food now.


I'm quite sure if I owned a Yoga mat I wouldn't want to eat it. Especially if you actually use your yoga mat-- nothing more delicious than the taste of sweaty bare feet. Actually throw some extra onions on mine and I'll never notice it! Not that I own one!

And all this, and you pay for it too, more than with money. They should just kill us and get it over with, this slow death stuff is annoying, she said as she munched away on some terrible, but good tasting trash they now call 'food'. Soylent green.

Just think of this as an added benefit - Free gastric Vulcanizing!

People in Milwaukee paid big bucks to seal their basements this way.
