I found this wonderful article on Facebook today and am re-posting it because I found it to be important information to know. There are 10 American Foods that have been Banned in other Countries. Interested in learning more about these 10 foods? Here is the list, go to the article for further details….
- Farm Raised Salmon
- Genetically Engineered Papaya
- Ractopamine-Tainted Meat
- Flame Retardant Drinks
- Processed Foods Containing Artificial Food Colors and Dyes
- Arsenic-Laced Chicken
- Bread with Potassium Bromate
- Preservatives BHA and BHT
- Milk and Dairy Products Laced with rBGH
How can this be you may ask and why has our food taken “steps backward” instead of “steps forward”? It is ridiculous and terrible that our food supply is so processed and diluted to what it really should be — REAL FOOD. The best thing to do is to try and eliminate as many processed foods as possible, preferably all, but this can be extremely difficult. I for one did not know about the Preservatives in gum for instance. Trident gum which is APPROVED by the American Dental Association seems to be safe — but, it isn’t! That contains BHT! Reading labels cannot be stressed enough! If you look closely, BHT is listed as (to maintain freshness) on this pack of gum.
