The 10,000 secret toxins hiding in your fridge
It’s a STUNNING confession from the mainstream.
The foods you eat every day… the meals you serve yourself and your family, including any little ones… are LOADED with potentially dangerous toxins.
And they don’t get inside the food by accident.
They’re placed there ON PURPOSE!
The American Academy of Pediatrics says that it’s found at least 10,000 chemicals allowed in food by the FDA that have NEVER been subject to rigorous human tests.
These include common flavorings, coloring agents, preservatives, and more.
I’ve warned of these additives and their risks for ages now. For the most part, people like me who sound the alarm are dismissed as paranoid.
Well, we’re not looking so paranoid now, as this very mainstream organization has issued a clear warning.
Given that these are pediatricians, they’re of course concerned about the risks to children -- growth and developmental problems, immune system issues, and more.
Additives can also impact children’s behavior, and some (especially artificial colorings) can cause or worsen ADHD.
But even if you’re not a kid or don’t have a child in your family, you’re not off the hook.
Long-term exposure to these compounds can cause problems in adults, including digestive struggles, mood disorders, migraines, and chronic disease.
One way to dodge all of the chemicals and additives is to avoid all processed foods. Stick to fresh, organic ingredients and meals you’ve prepared yourself, and you’ll always know exactly what you’re eating.
Sure, making fresh dinners will take more work. But everyone will be healthier for it.
It’s not just your food you need to keep an eye on.
As the Academy notes in its new warning, even the things that TOUCH your food can contain dangerous chemicals. Most folks have heard of bisphenol-A, a.k.a. BPA, the hormone-like chemical used in plastic containers and can linings that can leach into food and drink.
And you may have seen the proud “BPA-FREE!” logos slapped on most plastics today.
But many now use related chemicals – including other bisphenols – that can be just as toxic.
The American Academy of Pediatrics is urging people not to microwave in plastics or even put those plastics in the dishwasher.
I’d go a step further: Avoid ALL plastics -- in and out of the microwave. (While you’re at it, avoid the microwave if you can.)
Store your food in stainless steel and glass containers whenever possible to cut your exposure to all of the possible chemicals hiding in plastics.
