How harmful are preservatives and food additives?

I don’t want to add to the stress in your life or scare you, but have you ever stopped to consider the true price of eating foods that are pre-packaged for mass distribution or modified to increase shelf-life. Seriously, it is worth considering and no joking matter: Food additives can add pounds to your waistline, and take years off your life even though food companies claim that they contain “no nutritional or a neutral impact on health.” The first obvious question is how is our industrial food complex allowed to add chemicals to our food that is not necessarily good for us? The second question is what can we do about it?

Well in short, your body has an amazing ability to handle harmful or unnatural substances that it does not see as a nutrient. Unnatural substances like food additives must be eliminated or purged from your body by primarily the liver, kidneys and lymph nodes. Unfortunately, as we all know, there is “no free lunch.” The price of purging a toxin is the creation of a by-product called a free radical. If you remember your Chemistry 101 class, free radicals are atoms or molecules that have an unpaired electron. As they are filtered out, these free radicals basically bump into other “healthy” atoms and strip them of their electrons, essentially turning them into free radicals as well.   Free radicals have been linked to some serious health problems such as:

    Premature Aging
    Heart Attack, Stroke, and Coronary Artery Disease
    Gastrointestinal Problems Including Constipation and IBS
    Poor Eyesight
    Slower Metabolism and Increased Weight Gain

So, how do we counteract the production of these free radicals that occur as a result of eating foods that have unnatural food additives? Unfortunately, it seems that virtually EVERYTHING we eat or drink has food additives with absolutely no nutritional value.

Fortunately, the folks over at have created a simple program that transforms your body into a machine that burns fat while you sleep. This means you don’t have to worry about those additives adding pounds to your waistline!
