There are government organizations that are in place to keep what we eat and drink safe for consumption. It is now necessary for all consumers to be aware of what they are eating since you are the best source and researcher.Please continue to look into these and other dangers in everyday life.
Soda Pop Soft Drinks
You might think the soda you are drinking is pure after drinking that beverage for just about all your life. Make sure you check the label to find the ingredients might have changed to something you consider dangerous. Aspartame is an artificial sweetener in some foods and beverages both in Europe and the U.S. Controversy erupted yet name changing permitted that same product to be marketed unknown for the dangers it still was guilty of creating. Anyone with the genetic condition known as PKU is to avoid aspartame. Aspartame is also suggested to enhance the appetite, so diet drinks with aspartame might actually be counter productive in weight loss or weight management.Continual research will be the consumer's project because the FDA put their stamp of approval on aspartame.
Candy Bars Candy Drops
Every candy has some form of sweetener either natural or artificial.The artificial sweeteners can state the candy is safe for diabetics, yet in larger than suggested amounts can cause health issues.It is not that much more candy that causes severe problems. The blood sugar levels are not the danger points, but the intestinal flora is compromised with some diabetic candy bars, candy drops and other sweet treats diabetics choose for their sweet tooth to be satisfied.Natural sweeteners in manufactured candy sold could have color added to sell the product.Some colors have been banned altogether while others the FDA permits in very small amounts to pass their regulations.Do your due diligence when it comes to what kind of candy you are eating and giving your family.
Organic and Organically Grown
Organic refers to the fact that the product contains no pesticides or chemical fertilizers.Organically grown production adds no other ingredients when packaging right to the delivery of the product to the consumer.It is really necessary to read labels and also know what you are reading so you get what you want when you buy organic food supplies.There are different organic labels. Internet inquiries can supply lots of vital information about the company and the way plants and animals are treated and cared for . These all can be part of the organic process you need to learn about for safety and health reasons.
Genetically modified organisms is GMO. The newspapers and network news channels have almost ceased in shocking the customer of the dangers of the GMO items and the United States Government is in bed with Monsanto who is big GMO company. Dangers lie in the unknown of the GMO foods that are NOT labeled for consumers to realize what they could or could not choose to consume.In other countries other than the United States,GMO is labeled so customers have the opportunity to buy those products or not.GMO is a DNA disruption process that alters the natural properties of food. Don't just take for granted all food is free from dangers.
Water from a Source
Bottled water is a rage. It is easily purchased in a store in a "take with you" container.Consider where the actual contents comes from. Study what the process is that confirms the safety of the water in your container. Just because the label says spring water, look where the spring is located. Select the kind of plastic that will not seep harmful contents into the water in that container. Avoid PCR resin or non food grade plastic. In some water supplies fluoridation is acceptable. Study which areas permit that ingredients and then determine if you believe fluoride is a danger to you.
great list...aspartame in diet drinks that might fuel my appetite is an eye opener...just checked the can and sure enough it is there :( The scariest one on the list for me is the genetically modified stuff...and you just never know...and I (like most people) certainly don't want to do all the work to find out.
