8 Foods We Eat In The U.S. That Are Banned In Other Countries
1. Artificial food dye: Makes your food pretty and inhibits nerve-cell development.

Found in: Practically everything we eat: cake mixes, sports drinks, cheese, candy, and even MACARONI AND CHEESE.

Why itís dangerous: Artificial dyes are made from chemicals derived from PETROLEUM, which is also used to make gasoline, diesel fuel, asphalt, and tar! Artificial dyes have been linked to brain cancer, nerve-cell deterioration, and hyperactivity, just to name a few.

Where itís banned:†Norway, Finland, Austria, France, and the United Kingdom.


2. Olestra (or Olean): Lowers calorie counts while causing vitamin depletion and anal leakage.

Found in: Fat-free potato chips, corn chips, and French fries.

Why itís dangerous: Created by Procter & Gamble as a substitute for cooking oil, Olestra robs your body of its ability to absorb vitamins. Fun side effects include cramps and leaky bowels.

Where itís banned:†The U.K. and Canada.

3. Brominated vegetable oil: Makes food dye stick to liquid, but also may cause birth defects and major organ damage.

Found in: Sports drinks and citrus-flavored sodas.

Why itís dangerous: Bromine is a chemical used to stop CARPETS FROM CATCHING ON FIRE, so you can see why drinking it may not be the best idea. BVO is linked to major organ system damage, birth defects, growth problems, schizophrenia, and hearing loss.

Where itís banned: In over 100 countries.


4. Potassium bromate (or bromated flour): Great for impatient bakers, bad for your kidneys and nervous system.


Found in: Wraps, rolls, bread crumbs, bagel chips, flat breads.

Why itís dangerous: Derived from the same harmful chemical as brominated vegetable oil, brominated flour is used to decrease baking time and reduce costs. Only problem is, itís linked to kidney damage, cancer, and nervous system damage.

Where itís banned:†Europe, Canada, and China.

5. Azodicarbonamide: Bleaches flour, plastic, and induces asthma as an added bonus.

Where itís banned:†The U.K., Japan, and many other European countries.

7. Synthetic growth hormones rBGH and rBST: Harmful to cows and linked to increasing tumor development in humans.

Found in: Milk and dairy products.

Why itís dangerous: Growth hormones are bad for cows and people, potentially causing infertility, weakened muscle growth, and a whole array of cancers.

Where itís banned:†Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Japan, and the EU.

8. Arsenic: Basically this ish will slowly kill you.
