Food Additives to Avoid


When I first became aware of what they are doing to our food by using food additives, I found out that Aspartame (Now called Amino Sweet) was in nearly everything. When I read that it could eat holes in one’s brain, I decided to give up chewing gum because I couldn’t find a brand that didn’t contain Aspartame. Aspartame is most common in diet drinks and chewing gum.

One of the worst additives is MSG – I have read an article that lists over 30 different names for MSG. . . .  Monosodium Glutamate is fed to make rats fat – there are NO naturally fat rats! What do you think MSG is doing to us? Do you think that this might be the cause of the epidemic obesity crisis worldwide?
