14. “Diet” Foods
Low sugar! No sugar! Fat free!
Sounds familiar, right?
What so called “diet” food packaging should really say is:
Artificial sweeteners! Artificial coloring! Loaded with chemicals!
Food dye is particularly nasty, since the mo1st common types (Red 40, Yellow 6, and Yellow 5) contain carcinogens known to be linked with cancer.
One of the dyes, Red 3, is still being produced and consumed by thousands (if not millions) of Americans today despite some concerning research linking it to several diseases.
Skip the “diet” substitutes and pick the real deal instead.
