What’s Really in Your Food?

The Food industry’s most evil ingredients

By Mike Adams of

Ever wonder what’s really in the food sold at grocery stores around the world? People keep asking me, “What ingredients should I avoid?” So I put together a short list that covers all the most toxic and disease -promoting ingredients in the food supply. These are the substances causing cancer, diabetes, heart disease and leading to tens of billions of dollars in unnecessary health care costs across America (and around the world)

If you want to stay healthy and out of the hospital, read ingredients labels and make sure avoid all these ingredients:

Acrylamides– Toxic, cancer-causing chemicals formed in foods when carbohydrates are exposed to high heat (baking, frying, grilling). They’re present in everything from bread crusts to snack chips, and because they aren’t intentional ingredients, acrylamides do NOT have to be listed on labels.

Apartame-Chemical sweetener that causes neurological disorders, seizures, blurred vision and migraine headaches.

Autolyzed Proteins– Highly processed form of protein containing free glutamate and used to mimic the taste-enhancer chemical MSG.

BPA (Bisphenol-A) – A hormone mimicking chemical found in nearly all food packaging plastics. Active in just parts per billion, BPA promotes cancer, infertility and hormone disorders, It also “feminizes” males, promoting male breast growth and hormone disruption.

Casein-Milk proteins. Hilariously, this widely used in “soy cheese” products that claim to be alternatives to cow’s milk. Nearly all of them are made with cows milk proteins.

Corn Syrup-Just another name for High Fructose Corn Syrup, frequently used in infant formula products.

Food ColorsFD&C Red #40, for example, is linked to behavioral disorders in children. Nearly all artifical food colors are drived from petroleum, and many are contaminated with aluminum.

Genetically Modified Ingredients-Not currently listed on the label because the GMO industry (Monsanto and DuPont) absolutely does not want people to know which foods contain GMOs. Nearly all conventionally grown corn, soy and cotton are GMOs. They’re linked to severe infertility problems and may even cause the bacteria in your body to produce and release a pesticide in your own gut. If your’e not eating organic corn, you’re definitely eating GMO corn.

High Fructose Corn Syrup-A highly processed liquid sugar extracted with the chemical solvent glutaraldehyde and frequently contaminated with mercury. It’s also linked to diabetes, obesity and mood disorders. Used in thousands of grocery items, including things you wouldn’t suspect like pizza sauce and salad dressing.

  • Homogenized Milk
  • Hydrochloride
  • Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein
  • Partially Hydrogenated Oils
  • Propylene Glycol
  • Phosphoric Acid
  • Sodium
  • Sodium Nitrite
  • Soy Protein
  • Sucralose (Splenda)
  • Sugar
  • Textured Vegetable Protein (usually made from GMO soy beans)
  • Yeast Extract (hidden form of MSG)
