I write a lot about the dangers of processed foods when it comes to wreaking havoc on our health, but even I was surprised to find that 80% of pre-packaged foods sold in the United States are actually banned in other nations. And for good reason.

Whether it’s toxic soda brands like Mountain Dew, or sugary artificial cereals and carcinogenic ‘potato’ chips, around 80% of the processed food variety within the US actually contains ingredients that are banned around the world in countries like Canada and the United Kingdom. As a matter of fact, sometimes they’re banned throughout the entire European Union. The FDA, however, seems quite alright with these disease-linked substances lurking within the food supply.

And the USDA? Oh, well they also went ahead and approved the very same toxic pesticide that the EU banned just days earlier over significant health concerns and links to the destruction of the bee population — a population which we need in order to generate a staple crop supply for the entire globe.

 Banned Ingredients In Your Food

According to a report in Yahoo Sunshine, a team of researchers actually went in and discovered the percentage of items banned based on the examination of ingredients the products contain that were banned across the globe.

From substances like Olestra (used in low fat products and linked to gastrointestinal disorders and of course increased weight gain ironically enough) to thyroid-decimating brominated vegetable oil, hundreds of thousands of products were found to be utilizing these disease-riddled ingredients that the rest of the world shuns due to health concerns.

Meanwhile, Americans are being sold these ‘food’ products throughout the nation via deep discounts and heavy promotions through their local grocery stores. And what does the government have to say?

The same government that cracks down on raw milk and natural supplements. Well, the US government goes ahead and allows for Big Food corporations to unleash their entire medley of health-crushing ingredients within the food supply, and then uses phony corporate science to say that it’s ‘unscientific’ to criticize these companies for their complete lack of concern for public safety.

The bottom line? Ditch any processed food you may be consuming, and don’t be fooled by phony Big Food corporate science. Over 80% of what’s considered food here in the US has been banned in other nations, and citizens there would never dream of eating the yoga mat chemicals that we call chicken nuggets here in the USA.

Thank you, Dr. Ergas. My only hope is that we can have this "revolution" without a real battle. g

It's terrible. When is the

It's terrible. When is the U.S. public going to wake up? Life expectancy is lower in the States than in Europe and Japan. Obesity of course is a huge problem. Ignorance is another. Teen-age pregnancies and the huge prison population the same. Addiction to all sorts 'over the counter' drugs. More money is spent on health per cap than in Europe and Japan, but the public health is much worse. Public education is also very bad. It has the best universities in the world, but it forms an elite that mostly serves the interests of the rich and powerful. All this based on an incredible military superiority that serves the American supremacy in the world. But when this will end as it must - China and Russia are also making progress - it could be catastrophic. A third world war pitting East against West. If global warming doesn't do the job earlier. The U.S., for all intents and purposes, has become an oligarchy that uses the democratic processes and institutions. And the situation is gridlocked. Only a Second American Revolution can save the United States - and the world.

1. You’re keeping independent journalism alive
The corporate owned media has proven that it can’t be trusted. In a media landscape wrought with spin and corruption, NationofChange stands in very scarce company.

2. You’re sticking it to the rich, powerful, and corrupt
When you have money in this country you can get away with damn near anything, and they do. NationofChange isn’t afraid to expose these criminals no matter how powerful they are.

3. Your donation is 100% tax-deductible
NationofChange is a 501(c)3 charity. People tend to assume that many other organizations are (most nonprofits are NOT) but it’s that 501(c)3 status is a bit more rare than you think.
