9 American Foods That Are So Toxic They've Been Banned In Other Countries
Where it's found: Cereals, baked goods, candy, sports drinks, soda, macaroni and cheese, and more
Why it's bad: Dyes might make your food look pretty, but they're made from chemicals derived from, and in case you didn't know, that's also used to make gasoline, diesel, and tar. Which makes us wonder: If it fuels your car, should it also fuel you?
Why it's bad: If you're doubling up your salmon intake because of all the amazing health benefits of those omega-3 fatty acids, you need to consider if you're buying wild caught or farm-raised. Farmed salmon are raised on an unnatural diet of grains, antibiotics, and other drugs, leaving the fish with gray flesh, which is then pinkened with synthetic astaxanthin made from petrochemicals.
Where it's found: Sports drinks and citrus flavored soda
Why it's bad: The main ingredient is apoisonous chemical that is toxic and corrosive to the body, having been linked to organ system damage, birth defects, schizophrenia, and more (if those weren't terrifying enough).
Where it's found: Fat-free potato chips and French fries
Why it's bad: Lower calorie counts aren't always worth it when the product is made with cooking oil substitute, which inhibits your body's ability to absorb vitamins.
Where it's found: Frozen dinners, boxed pasta, packaged baked goods, various breads
Why it's bad: This chemical, which helps bleach flour quickly, is also used in foamed plastics, and has been linked toasthma
Where it's found: Milk and dairy products
Why it's bad: You've probably heard about the dangers of synthetic hormones by now, but they're still legal in the United States. Cows treated with them can become infertile and develop inflamed udders, so if we think humans are immune to the effects, we're wrong. The hormones have been linked tobreast, colon, and prostate cancer, so it's definitely not something to mess around with.
Where it's found: Cereal, gum, butter, meat, mixed nuts
Why it's bad: They help keep food from becoming rancid, which is good in theory, but these chemicals have been proven to cause cancer in, and the risk of causing cancer in humans is not one worth taking.
Where it's found: Poultry
Why it's badArsenic in chicken feed promotes growth and boosts pigmentation, which in turn makes the chicken flesh look much more pink (and probably appear healthier), but it's anything but. Arsenic is classified as a human carcinogen by the Environmental Protection Agency, so eat at your own risk.
