Processed food facts
In any grocery store here you’ll see tens of thousands of boxed, bagged, jarred and canned items begging for your attention with attractive pictures and brightly colored packaging.
Many of them show images of colorful fresh fruits and vegetables, or a cutesy little cartoon character or declare they’re a great source of fiber or they’re trans-fat free!
Don’t be fooled, my friend. Because what the label should say is “Jam-packed with health-wrecking chemicals!” and the picture should be a skull with crossbones.
The food industry routinely uses over 2,000 different food additives in their processed creations, but the total number of available additives has been estimated at nearly 8,000!
These include (synthetic) vitamins, minerals, emulsifiers, buffers, artificial flavorings and colorings, taste enhancers, thickeners and enormous amounts of the two biggies–salt and sugar.
The average American eats nearly 150 pounds of food additives each YEAR!
This is broken down as follows:
- 130 pounds of sugar (most of which is in the form of high fructose corn syrup—the worst form of sugar on the planet which harms your liver, makes you fat and is usually made from GMO corn—aka “Franken-corn”–to boot)
- 10-15 pounds of salt (which can drive up your blood pressure)
- 5-10 pounds of “other stuff”–synthetic vitamins, artificial flavors, preservatives, artificial sweeteners (which areneurotoxins), trans-fats (which give you heart disease) and colored dyes (which have been linked to cancer)
Some people in the world don’t even consume 150 pounds of FOOD in a YEAR–and yet the average American gulps down that much in chemicals alone.
