1. Artificial food dye: Makes your food pretty and inhibits nerve-cell development.
image

Found in: Practically everything we eat: cake mixes, sports drinks, cheese, candy, and even MACARONI AND CHEESE.

Why it’s dangerous: Artificial dyes are made from chemicals derived from PETROLEUM, which is also used to make gasoline, diesel fuel, asphalt and TAR! Artificial dyes have been linked to brain cancer, nerve-cell deterioration, and hyperactivity, just to name a few things.

Where it’s banned: Norway, Finland, Austria, France, and the U.K.

For more information on artificial dyes, visit visit this link 100 Days of Real Food.

2. Olestra (or Olean): Lowers calorie counts while causing vitamin depletion and anal leakage.

Found in: Fat-free potato chips, corn chips, and French fries.

Why it’s dangerous: Created by Procter & Gamble as a substitue for cooking oil, Olestra robs your body of its ability to absorb vitamins. Fun side effects include cramps and leaky bowels.

Where it’s banned: The U.K. and Canada.

For more information on Olestra, visit Time magazine’s visit this link “50 Worst Inventions.”

3. Brominated vegetable oil: Makes food dye stick to liquid, but also may cause birth defects and major organ damage.
image

Found in: Sports drinks and citrus-flavored sodas.

Why it’s dangerous: Bromine is a chemical used to stop CARPETS FROM CATCHING ON FIRE, so you can see why drinking it may not be the best idea. BVO is linked to major organ system damage, birth defects, growth problems, schizophrenia, and hearing loss.

Where it’s banned: In over 100 countries.

For more info on BVO, visit Web MD’s visit this link “Brominated Vegetable Oil Q&A.”

Just change you and your loved one. Can't worry about "we" and "us." 90% of people don't know or care about what is going on.

I used to want to change the world one person at a time. I thought I could influence millions and make everything better. Then I grew up and realized that the best thing I could do to influence and create change is to become the change I'd like to see in others in myself.

Now I bike to work, try to eat organic as possible, workout daily and constantly encourage and educate my friends and family.

And hopefully someday others will catch on.

Personally, I say consume whatever you want. Just be prepared for the consequences of your actions.

It's Survival of the fittest, not the fattest.

I eat everything on that list...but some of the stuff they put in the food is straight disgusting.

Question about the arsenic in chicken...is it all types of chicken (grilled, broiled, baked) or is it just fried chicken?

They found traces of arsenic in Splenda, speaking of which I thought aspartame would make the list.

it's all about the dollar. You can just be conscious of what you buy. If you buy organic, you encourage companies to go organic. I mean most of the sh*t in the chips and soda isles is garbage anyway.

If we got everyone who already buys organic to consciously but non-gmo, that would decrease profits by a ton. The first part is getting the word out. Then it's up to the individuals to use their buying power to invoke change.

It's amazing how long constant doctors visits and being pumped full of prescription drugs can prolong death. Just because we're 53rd doesn't mean that people have good lives. Just means they're rotting away in hospitals longer.

They may have it, but it's produced differently. There are countries that have Kraft Mac n' Cheese but it's not GMO like it is in the US.

Its all about corporate greed and money.

Until the consumer takes back control of the industry by not buyin the garbage they put out there, nothing will ever change..

As they say money is the rude of all evil.
i agree with you all the way but "rude of evil"?

Yknow it takes like 15/20 minutes delay for the brain to realise you're full. So if you keep eating til you're full, you're 15/20 minutes past it.

The american way.
