Avoid These 5 Poisons That Were APPROVED By The FDAImage sources – see foot of article

There are many controversial additives approved by the FDA that have been demonstrated by various scientific studies to be harmful towards humans. Here is a list of five of the most notorious:


1: Sodium Nitrate

Sodium nitrate is a chemical compound added to various meats to prolong their shelf-life. It is usually found in hotdogs, bacon, ham, and other similar products that are marketed to keep for a long time compared to fresh meat. While this salt additive works immensely well in terms of preservation, it has also raised a few red flags in the health department. [1]



Aside from the obvious link between salt additives and hypertension, sodium nitrate also has toxic effects on the body. According to the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), ingestion of sodium nitrate in toxic amounts can cause abdominal pain, convulsions, diarrhea, difficulty breathing, and even loss of consciousness. With the amount of processed food we eat every day, maybe it’s time to switch to organic fruit and vegetables for a while. [2]

2: MSG

Monosodium glutamate is another well-known food additive – intended to prolong the shelf-life of food and (allegedly) improve its taste. This chemical is likely the most controversial item on this list, because it is FDA approved despite people reporting harrowing side effects akin to allergic reactions (e.g. dizziness, rashes, chest pain). While the FDA states that MSG is “general recognized at safe”, they still require food items that contain it to include in the label. [3]

The BBC published a report in 2015 about a study by Dr. Olney that showed how MSG, whether ingested or injected intravenously, caused neurologic damage to the test subjects, basically killing of healthy brain tissue. The test subjects were mice, and when they became adults had growth, weight, and reproductive problems. Although these results were not replicated completely in other studies, we should still be wary of MSG in our diet. When ordering Chinese food, inquire if MSG is used in their cooking process. [4]

3: Potassium Bromate



Potassium bromate is a chemical popularly used in processing flour to improve dough quality, allowing “higher rising” of bread during the baking process. Despite the FDA allowing its use as a flour improver, there have been many studies that link potassium bromate to various unhealthy effects on the human body. A 2009 study by Wei, et al. found that potassium bromate caused kidney cancer when ingested in high doses. More recent studies in 2014 and 2015 have linked the chemical to oxidative damage in tissues and red blood cells, which can contribute to the formation of cancer cells. Different countries have also banned potassium bromate early on, like the United Kingdom. If this chemical has been linked to cancer, better avoid it, and all forms of brominated flour and pastries all together. [5][6][7][8]

4: Acesulfame Potassium

In a world that is in a constant battle against diabetes, the popularity of artificial sweeteners has sky rocketed. Low-calorie and basically anti-glucose, artificial sweeteners like Splenda and Equal are marketed as “healthy” alternatives to sugar. However, like most artificial food additives, acesulfame potassium is not completely safe. While this additive is FDA approved, a study by Cong, et. al. in 2013 found that long-term ingestion of this sweetener caused neurologic and metabolic alterations in the body. While the FDA sticks to their statement that acesulfame potassium doesn’t cause cancer, maybe it’s time to get your sugar fix from natural sources like fruits and vegetables. [9]

5: Olestra

Olestra or “Olean” is a fat substitute designed to mimic the taste of fat without having any actual calories. In theory it sounds like a dieter’s dream come true — but Purdue University has immediately debunked that weight loss myth. While this additive isn’t banned by the FDA, it lost its popularity after numerous reports of diarrhea and other disastrous gastrointestinal effects like anal leakage were widely reported in the US. A study published by the Purdue University found that olestra actually caused weight gain, not weight loss as advertised, because it causes disruptions in the body’s metabolic processes, leading to unwanted weight gain. Diarrhea and weight gain? No, thank you. Best opt for healthier snacks instead. [10][11]

The Simple Food Combination That DESTROYED Type 2 Diabetes In 74% Of Patients!

You will be AMAZED when you watch this incredible story that was recently featured by the world famous Dr. OZ.

Watch the video here:

diabetes

Rocco Wachman of Scottsdale, Arizona was overweight, diabetic and had the heart of an 85 year old… while being only in his 50's.

In just 28 days Rocco completely reversed his type 2 diabetes, got rid of his hypertension, acid reflux, successfully reduced the plaque on his arteries… came off his cholesterol and diabetes medication completely… and did all this just by changing his diet in a specific way

Watch the video to learn how he did it.

What’s even more astounding is that Dr. Michael Roizen, the chief medical consultant for the Dr. Oz show ASTONISHED viewers by calling this "Doable for everyone"!

Dr. Oz himself even stated that 90% of type 2 diabetics (over 200 MILLION people) can reverse their problem!

But how?

The secret is in the foods you eat, or more importantly, the foods you should AVOID.

Your diet is literally killing you. This is no exaggeration: Scientists have established firmly that chronic low-grade inflammation related to diet is responsible for the decrease of insulin sensitivity (aka insulin resistance) and high blood sugar leading to diabetes - as well as many other serious health problems.

Doctors at the International Council for Truth in Medicine are now revealing the truth about diabetes that has been suppressed for over 21 years.

Watch this video to learn how it is done - and how Big Pharma is hiding the truth about diabetes.
