List of foods readily available in US grocery stores that are BANNED in other countries for containing dangerous chemicals


I find great irony the US fights this massive war on drugs, including organic products like marijuana, but has no problem with turning a blind eye to cancer aiding agents in our food.

Good thing that we don't want government to protect citizens. It's much better when industry determines what is safe, right?

After all, consumers can vote with their wallets - never mind that they are not informed enough, educated enough, or are plain lied to by industry.

Works brilliantly: We're all fat, we take more medication than any other nation, most of our kids need to take pills to be "normal," etc.

I stated in another thread that my home-made bread has seven ingredients while the one from the grocery store has 115! Why? What are they? What do they do to my body and mind?

They cause you to need mental medication.

So that you can pass as normal.

Water can prevent carpets from catching fire too. It should be removed from our food.

You, obviously, are what you eat.

Even more disturbing - water contains the exact same chemical that blew up the Hindenburg!

The bread sold here has about seven ingredients. Some have even less.
It's only the fake white spongy stuff has a crapload of ingredients, but most folks buy from Au Pain Dore or Premiere Moisson. The bread is delicious. It doesn't last long because of the lack of preservatives, but one tends to eat it right away.

Which ingredients are in our food that the government hasn't determined to be safe?

In what year did the FDA not approve brominated vegetable oil and how did Mtn. Dew sneak it in?
