You are probably eating foods with ingredients which some other countries already said NO. Americans are still poisoning themselves with such foods that contain harmful and questionable ingredients, while some of them have been linked to diseases like cancer. They are the following:
- Artificial food dyes – these dyes are banned in Norway, Finland, Austria, France and the U.K. and it can be found practically in everything Americans eat like cake mixes, cheese, candies, and even some drinks. They are made out of petroleum, the same material used for producing gasoline, diesel fuel, tar and asphalt. The dyes have been connected to different diseases like cancer, nerve-deterioration and hyperactivity.
- Potassium bromate – it is banned in EU, Canada and even China, and can be found in products such as bread, wraps, rolls, bagel chips, and bread crumbs. This product reduces baking time and extends the cost of producing bread; however, it is toxic and is associated with kidney diseases, nervous system damage, as well as cancer.
- Synthetic grown hormones rBGH and rBST – this is banned in Australia, New Zealand Canada, Japan, and the EU and is found in milk and dairy products. Such hormones are very bad as they are a part of the anti-GMO’s advocacy and can cause infertility, infection, excessive muscle growth and cancer.
You may argue that bad health effects are avoidable if we consume these products in moderation. However, it is simply avoiding them, then consuming them.
