Take Action Against Processed Foods!
The truth is that there are over 3,000 different chemicals that are purposefully added to our food supply – passed off on the unsuspecting consumer as preservatives, artificial coloring, sweeteners, flavor enhancers and stabilizers (many of which have addictive qualities). As a result, the incidence of diet-related diseases, including adult and child obesity with all of its complications, continues to rise.
Studies show that these substances end up in the bodies of the humans that consume them, leading to a number of harmful health effects.
An American Journal of Clinical Nutrition Study claims a link between processed foods and Type 2 diabetes. Scientific evidence explains that artificial sweeteners actually inhibit weight loss and studies show that a common processed ingredient (MSG) brings on obesity. Some of the most common artificial food additives are known to be linked to infertility, weakened immune systems, birth defects and cancer.
The safety of our food supply is a critical issue around the world. Many other countries are way ahead of the United States in banning these additives because they are known to cause harm to humans – while we continue to poison our citizens in the name of commerce.
We, the undersigned, call upon the Government of the United States to establish and enforce a ban on any and all synthetic or processed toxins from being added to our food. We ask that among these additives, in the least these especially harmful additives be eliminated from our food supply.
