For most Americans, these child-friendly foods have been in your cabinet dozens of times. Although they may taste delicious, really – they are secretly making you ill. The idea that a little bit of of junk food is okay “in moderation” may actually be doing more harm than good. Especially when questionable ingredients are involved.
Most people believe they can trust big brand companies, because after all – they would never do anything to hurt our kids…right?
The number one goal of these companies is profit. Their end game could be affecting the health of you and your family!
Big brand companies love to use petroleum in their food products. Petroleum byproducts are used to create Vaseline, but they are also used to create artificial food dyes.
Europe and the United Kingdom feel so strongly about the use of fake food coloring, that they have actually banned its use. By law, manufacturers must use natural food colors, or none at all.
Guess what? American food manufacturer’s have a different “recipe” for the products that are sold in the U.K. and Europe, but we are “lucky” enough to still get the artificial stuff!
Artificial food dyes have been shown to cause:
- hyperactivity in children
- allergic reactions
- birth defects
- organ damage
- chromosomal damage
The list goes on, but these are major health concerns! Do you want this for yourself, or your kids?
Below is a list of 5 popular snack foods that contain ingredients that cause cancer. How many are in your cupboard?
1. Pop Tarts

Sugar is a leading cause of diabetes, obesity, and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.
If that wasn’t enough, these little sugar sandwiches contain TBHQ, a preservative which damages human DNA.
