Toxins in Our Kids’ Foods – there is a headline that will get your attention! I recently came across this article from the Huffington Post “Toxins in Our Kids’ Foods: Where Is the FDA?” authored by two of my favorite food advocates Laurie David and Robyn O’Brien. They were highlighting a report by the National Cancer Institute that showed a 9.4% increase in childhood cancer between 1992 and 2007. They go on to say that Links are being found to hyperactivity in kids (ADHD), cancer and serious food allergies.
Did you know that companies like Kraft, Coca-Cola, Walmart, M&M’s have voluntarily removed artificial colors, the preservative sodium benzoate, and even aspartame from their products. WHY? European countries will not sell food with toxins in it so these American companies make something special to export and meanwhile keep the toxins in our food.
