Your Food Is Slowly Killing You

Thanks to corruption in the FDA and USDA, deadly toxins are added to your food. Here’s how to avoid them.


Did you know that 80% of the food and drinks you consume have chemicals added to make them addictive and/or to mask off, sour or tinny flavors? Yeah, it’s true. And they cause brain damage. Seriously. From sushi to soda, butter to burgers, you’re eating a lot of this stuff daily. Don’t you think it’s time you know what you’re eating?

Your Food Is Slowly Killing You

Ironically, artificial sweeteners cause an increased appetite. That seems a bit contradictory for weight loss products.

Food additives are anything that is put in or on something, for whatever reason, that was not there when the food or drink was in its natural state. Countless different types of colors, taste enhancers, stabilizers, preservatives, and other chemicals are used in and on the food and drinks that you buy in grocery stores and in restaurants.

The two most commonly used food additives are artificial sweeteners, especially aspartame, and monosodium glutamate (aka. MSG). These two also seem to cause the most disturbing physical symptoms or reactions.


Read on to learn about these two major toxins, how to identify these toxins in your food, and how to minimize your exposure…

    The sad reality is that the government only wants our money. If they really care, they will never allow these products to be out in the market.

    MSG is a big no-no in our house. We don’t use preservatives because use organic seasonings.

    It’s normal. We can’t change it. All we have to do is to accept the fact that we are poisoning ourselves.

    If we avoid these, what about our food? It will be tasteless, and we will never enjoy eating. Let’s just be careful about how many toxins are we going to take.

    Yes! thank you, Hilary! It is an eye-opener for those people who did not believe that the government is fooling us. They only want the money from the distributors.

    The difference between the people who took a lot of toxins in his/her body and people who carefully eat their food is base on their body.

    If you want to avoid toxin foods, they don’t eat. Haha! I am not kidding. There’s another way, plant your own veggies, and don’t use any seasonings on that.

    Health is not a state of perfection, but a state of wholeness. Food is intricately connected to self-love.

    I don’t care about this article. I love eating bacon, pasta, and hotdogs. I won’t die because of starving.

    We can’t blame the government because it is not their fault. If we are just a responsible person, and we pay attention to what we are eating.

      We can blame them because in the first place, why would they approve that if they know that it can harm our health? It is all about the money, dear.
