FDA Greenlights Cancer-Causing Food Additive
There’s a dangerous toxin lurking in thousands of food sources that Americans consume every single day.
It’s been classified as a possible carcinogen… and it’s been linked to diseases as varied as Crohn’s disease, asthma, and dementia.
And the government is doing ZILCH to protect you from it.
In fact, the FDA knows about this toxin, and is still giving manufacturers the green light to use it in their products… without any kind of label or warning whatsoever.
I’ll tell you what you need to know to avoid this harmful toxin.
The food additive is called titanium dioxide, and it’s generally considered safe.
But a when titanium dioxide is in the form of nanoparticles, all bets are off.
The problem with nanoparticles is their size. They are just about 100 nanometers in diameter. A nanometer is one million times smaller than a millimeter.
This creates problems because smaller particles can squeeze into smaller spaces – including penetrating your cells.
And that’s when the problems start.
These titanium dioxide nanoparticles (called E171) interfere with the structure and function of your DNA, setting the stage for cancerous changes in your body.
In fact, the International Agency for Research on Cancer has classified E171 as a possible carcinogen.
One animal study shows that consuming E171 in drinking water for just five days led to breaks in chromosomes, damaged DNA, and inflammation.
Exposure to these harmful nanoparticles has also been linked to Crohn’s disease, dementia, autoimmune disease, eczema, and autism.
Another study reveals that these nanoparticles can kill off your brain cells, specifically those related to stable mood, digestion, and sleep.
But with the FDA allowing them in the food supply, how can you avoid them?
Well, since titanium dioxide is used as a whitening agent in over 1,000 popular products, from powdered donuts to breath mints, your best bet is to simply stay away from all processed foods.
Besides, the healthiest foods are on the perimeter of the grocery store. They don’t come with ingredient labels, and there’s no danger of them containing E171.
You might not be able to avoid E171 100 percent of the time, but the less of this stuff you’re putting in your body (and in your cells), the better.
