How Food Companies Exploit Americans with Ingredients Banned in Other Countries

“Americans are sicker and die younger than other people in wealthy nations.”

That’s a quote from the Institute of Medicine and National Research Council. And that’s in spite of the fact that Americans spend 2.5 times more on healthcare than any other nation.

Vani Hari is an investigator and author looking into why. And she’s come up with some hard facts.

Part of the problem is what’s in the food we eat. There are some great comparisons about food ingredients in the U.S. and the U.K. You’ll be surprised at the differences. You’ll be especially surprised at some of the banned ingredients from other countries used here.

Glyphosate Found in Breast Milk

Glyphosate is the generic name of RoundUp®. It is very toxic.

The increasing use of food crops genetically modified to resist this herbicide is leading to other potential problems. One of these problems is that the poison is now showing up in breast milk.

Why is this a problem? Because animal studies have shown that the worst health effects from glyphosate happen to infants and children.

Thankfully, a group of concerned mothers are voicing their opinions on this to the EPA. Their concern? That contrary to Monsanto’s claim the poison clears from the body naturally, there is now evidence it accumulates. Not good.

There are more details about this study in this article. It includes the dramatic difference in so-called safety levels between the U.S. and Europe. It’s worth the read.

Supporting Evidence for Aspartame-Alzheimer’s Link Emerges

If you use aspartame, this article is important for you.

Why? Because when ingested, it turns into methyl alcohol (methanol). And research shows methanol creates brain damage.

One mechanism for this is that it turns into formaldehyde. That is very toxic. Another is that the brain plaque associated with Alzheimer’s increases with exposure.

Of course makers claim there isn’t a problem. Usually these claims are based on animal studies. But unlike animals, humans don’t have the ability to neutralize methanol.
