So why are so many ingredients that have been banned in other countries allowed into our food supply? Here's just a few common ingredients other countries have deemed toxic.
Found in rice, cereal, baby food, juice, fruit and even water. Causes cancer
Food Colorings like Blue 1, 2, or Yellow 5, 6-
Makes your food look good. Used in just about anything in a package. Your child's mac & cheese, oh its there. Also used to kill head lice & seal floors. Yum!
Used to bleach flour for bread, pastas, frozen dinners. Those Ramen noodles you loved in college, maybe still do..... Yep. Also used in foamed plastics like sneaker soles & yoga mats. Hey maybe you do have an inner yogi in you!
BHA & BHT-
Preserves food. Made from petroleum. Causes Cancer
RBGH & RBST-
Used in Milk and dairy industry to grow cows large & quickly, also to produce more milk. Causes breast, colon and prostate cancer.
Now why would the FDA allow any of this in our food? The answer is quite simple. Money. Washington runs on money. Your food looks better, lasts longer, made cheaper. You eat more, demand goes up, manufacturing costs stay down. Profits soar. Your health goes down. Then healthcare aka sick care and big pharma's profits skyrocket. The corporations behind the agricultural, meat, and healthcare industries lobby in Washington. Thus they are funding and profiting killing us. But Ill save more in depth political talk for another day. Just wanted to give you all something to think about since Ive been m.i.a for a minute
Dont be a sheep, self educate! And ask yourself again, Whats on your plate?
