The short term and long term side effects from ingesting these chemicals are not worth it. Always read the list of ingredients. Eliminate products containing:
Artificial food colourings (any colour with a number after it)
Artificial sweeteners: phenylalkaline, saccharine, aspartame and sucralose (all items endings in ose)
High fructose corn syrup
Monosodium glutamate (MSG)
Sodium nitrate
Soybean oil
and all partially hydrogenated oils (trans fats)
Supermarket shelves are stocked primarily with processed, packaged foods. At least 90% of them contain some sort of refined sugar or carbohydrate. Foods that are refined and processed are taken out of their natural context destroying vitamins, minerals and important nutrients. First, reading labels, and knowing what to look for on them is crucial. If a product contains items such as partially hydrogenated oils, high fructose corn syrup, soy bean oil, aspartame, dextrose and enriched flour, don't buy it! Beware of any processed food because chemicals are always used. Shopping along the outer edges of the grocery store where fruits, vegetables and meats are usually located will make avoiding the packaged stuff a little easier.
