Top Ten Things Food Companies Do Not Want You to Know About
Giant food corporations have just one mission- to sell more food and beverage products to consumers. Succeeding in this mission depends on how well they keep consumers in the dark on certain issues, such as the presence of cancer-causing chemicals a.k.a carcinogenic ingredients, which are found in many popular food products today.
Here is a list of 10 things that the food corporations absolutely do not want you to know about:
The ingredients listed on the label aren’t the only things in the food– Cancer-causing chemicals like acrylamides may be formed in the food during high-heat processing, yet they are not listed on the food labels. Besides residues of solvents, pesticides and other chemicals may also be present, but are again not listed on the container.
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) in children is caused mainly by the consumption of processed food ingredients like artificial colors and refined carbohydrates. It has been found that eight percent of the so-called ADHD kids who are taken off processed foods are cured of ADHD in two weeks.
Monosodium Glutamate (MSG) which is added to food and even grocery products through a dozen different innocent-sounding ingredients, actually imbalances the endocrine system function, thus disabling normal appetite regulation. This also causes consumers to keep eating more food.
MSG is hidden in foods in these very ingredients: yeast extract, torula yeast, hydrolyzed vegetable protein and autolyzed yeast. So, MSG as a chemical not only contributed to nationwide obesity, but it also helps food companies to boost repeat business, as MSG causes consumers to keep on eating.
The chemical sweetener Aspartame, when exposed to warm temperatures for just a few hours, begins to break down into chemicals like formaldehyde and formic acid. Formaldehyde is a potent nerve toxin and causes damage to the eyes, brain and entire nervous system. It has been aspartame, which has been linked to migraines, seizures, blurred vision and many other nervous system problems.
Food dips which are sold in supermarkets like guacamole dip are made with hydrogenated oils, artificial colors and once again Monosodium Glutamate. Most guacamole dips do not even contain avocados.
Plastic food packaging is a potent health hazard- Scientists have proven that plastics routinely seep the chemical bisphenol A into the food, where it is then eaten by consumers. Cooking in plastic containers multiplies the level of exposure. Bisphenol is a hormone disrupter and can cause breast formation in men and severe hormonal balances in women. It may also encourage the growth of hormone-related cancers like prostate cancer and breast cancer.
Milk produced in the U.S.A comes from cows injected with synthetic hormones, which have been banned in other countries. One should drink raw almond milk instead.
Most grocery products that make out-there health claims on their pacgaging are, in reality nutritionally worthless, like meal replacement shakes, instant chocolate milk. In actuality the most nutritious foods are actually those the FDA does not allow to make any health claims whatsoever.
Food manufacturers actually “buy” shelf space and position at grocery stores. That is why the most profitable foods, the ones with the lowest quality ingredients are the most visible in supermarket aisles. The effect of all this is to provide in-store marketing and visibility to the very foods and beverages that promote obesity, diabetes, cancer, heart disease and other conditions.
