TOXINS TO AVOID




Azodicarbonamide





 What is that?  Well, my guess is that most of you are going to be none too happy when you discover this truth.  Azodicarbonamide is a foamed plastic.  The United States allows its use as a bleaching agent for bread.  It is found in the breads sold by Subway, McDonald’s, KFC and Burger King, just to mention a few.  It is banned in most of Europe.  Singapore carries a hefty $450,000 fine and a 15-year jail sentence for ne’er-do-wells who attempt to use it there.


High-oleic oils            


This type of oil was manufactured by preprocessed food manufactures to extend the shelf life of their foods.  These chemical compounds are even worse that non high-oleic oils.  If it can extend the lives of foods sitting on shelves, it most certainly will reduce the lives of humans. 


Personally, I would rather have my food without preservatives.
