Secretly Lurking in Our Foods Today
Here are some examples of what is in many of our foods today - unknown and unseen by the general public.
Hormones, Steroids, Antibiotics found in animal products
Research shows these compounds can be absorbed by fruits and vegetables grown in soil treated with manure from animals fed antibiotics.
Toxins and Pollutants from contaminated soil and water
These can stay in our environment years after they've been banned, such as DDT.
Pesticides, Fertilizers, and Fumigants - These are all unnatural compounds.
MSG (Monosodium Glutamate) - MSG is a neurotoxic flavor enhancer that's hidden in many of our foods under a long list of deceiving names.
Partially Hydrogenated Oil - Gives baked goods and snacks longer shelf life but contains high levels of dangerous trans fat.
High Fructose Corn Syrup
With a high glycemic index, it converts to fat more than any other sugar. Usually made with genetically modified corn and genetically modified enzymes.
Genes from Bacteria, Viruses, Plants, Animals, and even Humans inserted into plants like soybeans, corn, canola, and cotton
Unlike traditional breeding, genetic engineering can create life forms that would normally never exist in nature. Shockingly, U.S. food manufacturers are NOT required to put "genetically modified" on any food labels! This leaves us in the dark.
Artificial Colors and Flavorings
Artificial colors are chemical compounds made mainly from coal-tar; artificial flavors are cheaply produced chemical mixtures that mimic natural flavors.
Despite claims that these are "safe" food additives, remember, they are NOT natural. For example, aspartame is made up of three chemicals. These sweeteners are often toxic to the body and cause all kinds of serious health problems.
These are phenolic compounds often added to food to preserve fats and prevent fats from becoming rancid; these preservatives produce low levels of hormones.
SO... What's the RESULT of all of these dangerous ingredients in our food?
Food that's been denatured, stripped of much of its nutritional value and integrity, and food that could potentially cause serious health issues.
But with THE FEAST, you get REAL NUTRITION.
