Food Additives News

Comments Off on Food Additives News

Food additives are chemicals added to processed foods to give them a better taste, consistency, texture, color and a longer shelf life. Most food additives are not adequately tested individually, and NONE are tested in the combinations found in the packaged foods on the grocery store shelves.

Many food additives are known to cause adverse effects, including skin irritation, allergic reactions, and even more serious conditions like liver and kidney problems and cancer.

Some of the chemicals added to processed foods can even rob your cells of the vital oxygen your body needs for life. Some of the oxygen-robbing food additives include …

  • Sodium benzoate, which when used in products containing vitamin C can cause the formation of the cancer-causing chemical, benzene.
  • Canola Oil
  • Monosodium Glutamate (MSG), also an excitotoxin which kills your brain cells.
  • Nitrates and Nitrites
  • Margarine
