Genetically Modified Foods (GMOs): Genetically modified crops are getting into our food supply at a frightening rate. More than 90% of corn and soy are now genetically modified. Experts are in general agreement that not enough testing has been done before GMO foods were added to our food supply. No one – and this includes growers and manufacturers of GMO foods – knows the long-term effects they will have on our health.
Microwave Popcorn: Whether it’s the chemically-lined bag or the actual contents, microwave popcorn is at the core of lung cancer debates around the world. Not only are the kernels and oil likely to be from GMO modified corn, the fumes released from artificial butter flavoring contain diacetyl, which is toxic for humans to consume.
Grilled Red Meat: Scientists have found that grilling meats – especially processed meats like hot dogs – releases a carcinogen called heterocyclic aromatic amines. Grilling red meat to the point of well-done, changes the chemical and molecular structure of the meat, thus affecting our health.[/vc_column_text]
