Toxic Food Ingredients

barrel-showing-Toxic Food ingredientsYour favorite foods, even so-called “health” foods contain hidden, toxic food ingredients. Virtually any food that has been processed, canned, dehydrated or preserved has had chemicals added to it, and these prepackaged foods make up over 60 percent of the average American diet.

We don’t think of the food we eat as toxic, literally harmful to our health, but many refined grains, trans fats, high fructose corn syrup, and non-food additives like flavors and colors are directly linked to chronic diseases and cancers. Very few of these toxic food ingredients are listed on food labels, most of the dangerous artificial ingredients are those long chemical names that you can’t even pronounce on the ingredient lists.

Three examples of these dangerous and toxic food ingredients that you should avoid include:

Genetically Modified FoodsGMOs are foods that have been modified or mutated in a laboratory and have been linked to cancer, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, Alzheimer’s disease, joint pain, newborn diseases and nutritional problems including type 2 diabetes and obesity. There are over 39 common foods you eat every day that have been genetically modified including corn, soy and sugar beets.

Sugar Substitutes – Sugar is addictive, unhealthy and directly linked to obesity and diabetes. Unfortunately, sugar substitutes are not a safe alternative. Neotame is a manmade sugar substitute that was created years ago without testing the long-term side effects it would have on your health. We now know that neotame (along with aspartame and saccharin) are extremely dangerous and even fatal. These toxic sweeteners are commonly found in bottled juices, sugar-free gum and candies, “diet sodas and snacks, even ketchup, plus over 100 other foods you’re probably eating every day.

Tap Water – The water from your faucet that you drink and cook with contains many toxins, the most dangerous, fluoride, is added at your municipal water treatment plant. Fluoride has been found to alter brain function, disrupt your thyroid function which means you will not be able to burn fat efficiently. Fluoride is also a known neurotoxin and increases your risk of cancer.
