POISON Additives

There are over 3,000 food additives approved by the FDA for use in foods we consume or the beverages we drink. Additives with immediate effects may cause headaches, or alter your energy level, or they may affect your mental concentration, behavior or immune response.

12 Key Additives to AVOID:
Hydrogenated Fats are artificial and increase risk of heart diseases, obesity, and generally stress the liver.
Artificial Food Colors are carcinogenic, allergenic and believed to contribute to hyperactivity, learning problems, ADD/ADHD.
Nitrates/Nitrites are carcinogenic as this preservative is converted to nitro amines in our body—Vitamin C 500-1000mg protects, if eaten.
Sulfites trigger allergic reactions, causing headaches, nausea, diarrhea, and irritated membranes—especially avoid if you are asthmatic.

Sugar & Natural Sweeteners should be limited to no more than 10% of your diet, as overuse causes dental cavities, obesity, diabetes, hypoglycemia, behavioral changes, hyperactivity, ADD/ADHD, yeast problems and food cravings.

Artificial Sweeteners are synthetic chemicals and should be avoided. Saccharin, Cyclamate, Aspartame (Nutrasweet/Equal), Sucralose, Asulfame K, Splenda and Neotame are dangerous!
