This is wrong on so many levels but what makes it so sad is that the same government that allows these freakishness in our food supply chain is the same one working tirelessly looking for cures to treat the man made illness generated by these same food.. It is a vicious circle.
It is very scary to think of all the additives and chemicals that are added into our foods supply to increase product shelf life thus guarantees the bottom line of the product. It is a shame that our society has been made to believe that it is necessary; all these additives, colors, chemicals etc are actually decreasing our health.
We all know processed foods are filled with a lot of other unnecessary ingredients that serve as stabilizers, sweeteners and preservatives so the food can outlive your kids’ more reason why we should avoid any food that has 10 ingredients or more. Wholesome foods tend to have very few ingredients because they only contain ingredients that are essential to making that product. For example, organic peanut butter should contain peanuts many list a lot of other unnecessary ingredients that serve as stabilizers, sweeteners and preservatives so the food can outlive your kids’ childhood. Bread should contain about 5 or 6 ingredients, HFCS(see below) should not be one of them.
