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.
How To Identify MSG in Your Food, Drinks and Other Products:
Even products that say no MSG added are not necessarily free of MSG. Most meals served in restaurants across America contain MSG. Delicatessen and smoked meat products as well as sausages and luncheon meats usually contain MSG. Canned gravies, chili, stews, and sauces contain large amounts of MSG. Processed or dried foods with “flavor packets” usually contain MSG. These are often found in boxed rice, pasta, powdered salad dressing mixes, and dried soups.
Most commercial salad dressings, soups, meat stocks, dairy products, sauces, seasoning mixtures, frozen foods, teas, and convenience foods contain some form of MSG. It is also found in mayonnaise, ketchup, mustard, and in most packaged and canned foods, including diet foods, desserts, ice cream, and cakes.
When you see “Natural Flavors” on an ingredient list, keep in mind that it’s a way of hiding MSG, and will actually contain about 40% MSG.
Reactions to MSG can occur with soaps, shampoos, hair conditioners, and cosmetics. Check for “hydrolyzed” and “amino acids” ingredients. Strangely, MSG-type reactions can occur to the aspartic acid found in Aspartame. Some medications (including children’s medicines), drinks, candy, and chewing gum are potential sources of hidden MSG and Aspartame. Other sources of hidden MSG are the binders and fillers used in medications, nutrients and supplements (prescription and non-prescription).
If it says sugar-free, do not even consider it! It almost certainly contains artificial sweeteners.
Things You Can Do to Minimize Your Exposure to Harmful Additives:
- Read labels! Read labels! Read labels! Get into the habit of thoroughly reading the labels of anything and everything that you, or someone you love, intend to eat, drink, take, or put on their skin, hair, or nails. Always ask your pharmacist about the ingredients that are in the products you or a loved one are going to take.
- For MSG, minimize and/or avoid manufactured, processed, and fermented food. Replace them with natural, unprocessed, unfermented food whenever possible.
- As for artificial sweeteners, you should avoid artificially sweetened food, drinks, medications, supplements, or anything made with them. Even something sweetened with white sugar is better for you than something artificially sweetened. Better yet, you should use natural sweeteners, if sweetening is necessary (like Agave).
- Only eat food products that are labeled 100% organic. Go vegan.
- Make your own skin care products – it’s easier than you think.
And above all, don’t give up. You and your health are worth the effort!
