Revealing the Hidden Dangers: Toxic Ingredients in U.S. Foods

Uncovering Harmful Secrets: Banned and Toxic Ingredients in American Food
Food Safety Alert: Identifying Toxic Ingredients in U.S. Products

Updated Aug 2023

In Singapore, you can get sentenced to 15 years in prison and a $500,000 fine for using a chemical in food products that are common in frozen dinners.

Mtn Dew and products used to keep carpets from catching on fire are made from the same chemical. A chemical found in Chex Mix is known to cause cancer in rats.

A new book on nutrition, first highlighted by BuzzFeed, lists six food additives that are found in a wide range of popular groceries sanctioned by the Food and Drug Administration, but foreign governments have determined to be too dangerous to allow their citizens to consume.

Unveiling Disturbing Truths: Toxic Ingredients in Everyday Products

In a startling revelation, it has come to light that some commonly consumed products contain alarming ingredients:

1. **Mt. Dew’s Fiery Secret:** Astonishingly, Mt. Dew includes a chemical used as a fire retardant in carpets.

2. **Bubble Yum’s Dark Side:** Bubble Yum, a popular bubble gum, contains a chemical linked to cancer in laboratory rats.

Moreover, one of the most pervasive culprits in harmful ingredients is various forms of food colouring. These colourings, shockingly, are derived from petroleum and are prevalent in everyday items such as soda, sports drinks, mac and cheese, cake, candy, and numerous other American products. Research has shown that the chemicals used in these dyes have the potential to cause various cancers and even mutate healthy DNA.

To understand the larger picture, it’s essential to recognize that controlling the masses often involves lowering their intelligence through poisonous substances and extreme stress. Pair this with a subpar education system, creating a new generation of highly pliable individuals. This phenomenon is a concerning reality in the United States.


To fully control the masses (crowd), you need to lower their IQ via poison and extreme stress, push them through a substandard education system, and viola, you have created a new breed of highly malleable lemmings.  This is what is going on in the US.  The only way to escape from this almost perfectly laid trap is to pay attention to all the ingredients listed on the foods you ingest (if it contains a strange-sounding name, avoid it as, in most cases, it’s not good for you).

Secondly, homeschool your children if you can or if you have the money, send them to a good school and teach them that being a so-called team player is only for those who want to be controlled by someone else.  Hence, the massive emphasis on being a team player. notice the world is full of teams but not so many coaches; the coach controls the unit.

Examples of Some Toxins in our Food Supply

  • Bisphenol A or BPA
  • Refined Vegetable and Seed Oils. Refined vegetable- and seed oils include corn, sunflower, safflower, soybean and cottonseed oils.
  • Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs)
  • High Fructose Corn Syrup
  • Trans Fats.
  • Mercury in Fish.

A closer look at some of these Toxic ingredients


Ditch any food that lists shortening or partially hydrogenated oil as an ingredient since these are also evil trans fats. In addition to clogging your arteries and causing obesity, they also increase your risk of metabolic syndrome. Choose healthier monounsaturated fats, such as olive, peanut, and canola oils and foods containing unsaturated omega-3 fatty acids.

High Fructose Corn Syrup

The evil king of all refined grains is high fructose corn syrup (HFCS). The refined sugar we consume has declined over the past 40 years, but we’re consuming almost 20 times as much HFCS. According to researchers at Tufts University, Americans consume more calories from HFCS than any other source. It’s in practically EVERYTHING. It increases triglycerides, boosts fat-storing hormones, and drives people to overeat and gain weight. Adopt my zero-tolerance policy, and steer clear of this sweet “poison.”

Sodium Benzoate and Potassium Benzoate

These preservatives are sometimes added to soda to prevent mould from growing, but benzene is a known carcinogen linked with serious thyroid damage. Dangerous levels of benzene can build up when plastic bottles of soda are exposed to heat or when the preservatives are combined with ascorbic acid (vitamin C).

Butylated Hydroxyanisole (BHA)

BHA is another potentially cancer-causing preservative, but it has been deemed safe by the FDA. Its job is to help prevent spoilage and food poisoning, but it’s a major endocrine disruptor and can seriously mess with your hormones.

Sodium Nitrates and Sodium Nitrites

These two preservatives are in processed meats like bacon, lunch meat, and hot dogs. They’re some of the worst offenders, and they’re believed to cause colon cancer and metabolic syndrome, which can lead to diabetes. Protect your health by always choosing fresh, organic meats. thebetterhealthstore
