Want a no-brainer way to boost your immunity??
Avoid food additives!! Food additives may seem relatively harmless., but did you know that many common food additives can sabotage your immune system?
Most of us aren't aware of the chemicals in our food, and how these hidden dangers can raise your level of illness in many ways. Yet addictive laced processed foods have become more American than apple pie. Highly processed foods make up 60% of the American diet.
The US Food and Drug Administration the FDA has approved thousands of food additives. Consuming small amounts of additives may be safe, but the health risks add up and if you rely heavily on processed foods, a diet rich in processed foods is linked to chronic diseases such as obesity, high blood pressure, heart disease, and even cancer.
Some additives we should think twice about are
1. Sodium nitrites. When meat is heated at high temperature, or combined with stomach acid, sodium nitrate produces nitrosamines nitrosamines are linked to increased risk of pancreatic and colorectal cancer.
2. Sulfites. Sulfites are preservatives many people are sensitive to. Avoid products listing sulfur dioxide, potassium bisulfite, sodium bisulfite or sodium sulfite on the label.
3. Monosodium glutamate or MSG. This enhances flavor and texture in Asian foods and soups and other processed foods. People sensitive to MSG can experience nausea, breathing problems, and other reactions like migraines and high blood pressure.
4. FD&C yellow no. 5 and no. 6. These artificial coloring agents used in candy cereals can cause severe allergic reactions and those with asthma. Some Research also suggests a link with hyperactivity in children.
