What's in the food you Eat?
Beginners Guide to Healthy Eating
1. Butane or TBHQ
2. Propylene Glycol
Low-fat ice cream
3. Potassium Benzoate
Diet soda with potassium benzoate can form into benzene which is a carcinogen. It can also be in some fruit juices that contain ascorbic acid and vitamin C, which can worsen the effects of benzene in the body
Soy was also found to play a part in an imbalance of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids in the body.
If you're going to eat soy, go for products made from organic fermented soy (as opposed to unfermented soy). Two recommendations are Tamari and Braggs Liquid Aminos because these are both extracts from fermented soy.
Avoid soy oil, soy sauce, soy milk, soy protein and soy isolate (unless they're fermented).
5. High Fructose Corn Syrup
High Fructose Corn Syrup is a processed sweetener made from genetically modified corn. It's cheaper and sweeter than regular sugar and is in almost every processed food and sugar-sweetened drink.
HFC causes tissue damage that may lead to a fatty liver, obesity, diabetes and heart disease. To make matters worse, it contains other chemical toxins like Chloralkali which contains mercury.
The average person consumes more than 20 teaspoons of high fructose corn syrup per day. Over time, these heavy metals can accumulate in the tissues of the body causing chronic health problems.
You'll find it in breakfast cereals, juice drinks, low-calorie salad dressings and some yogurts (like Yoplait).
