Banned Foods Americans Should Stop Eating [Infographic]







There is little doubt that in terms of quality, much of the food sold in the United States lags behind those sold in other nations. In fact, what you are eating now may already be banned in other countries because of harmful additives, growth promoters, genetically engineered ingredients, or other dangerous practices.
The overall level of health in the country is deteriorating, faring lower than other industrialized countries, even in the face of greater health care spending. You can’t help but see a connection between these toxic foods and the rising rates of disease.

Loved in America, Banned in Other Parts of the World?

A list of these banned foods, based on an MSN article, includes farm-raised salmon, Hawaiian (GMO) papaya, artificial food dyes, arsenic-laced chicken, ractopamine-tainted meat, bromate-containing drinks and bread, Olestra, carcinogenic preservatives, and rBGH-laced milk.
Farm-raised fish of all species is of high concern. They can spell disaster for your health in numerous ways, because ALL farm-raised fish – not just salmon – are given a concoction of vitamins, antibiotics, and synthetic pigments (depending on the fish) compensate for the lack of natural flesh coloration due to the unnatural diet. The fish are also exposed to pesticides, along with compounds such as toxic copper sulfate, which is typically used to keep nets free of algae.
Studies consistently found ratios of PCBs, dioxins, toxaphene, dieldrin, and mercury to be higher in farm-raised fish than wild fish.


And let’s not forget the more than 3,000 food additives – preservatives, flavorings, colors, and other ingredients – that are added to US processed foods, including infant foods and those targeting young children. The most popularly used dyes in the country – red 40, yellow 5, yellow 6, and blue 2 – have been shown in research to cause behavioral problems, as well as cancer, birth defects, and other health issues in lab animals.
In countries where these food dyes and colors are banned, companies like Kraft employ natural colorants instead, like paprika extract, beet root, and annatto. Why can’t they do the same in the American Mac & Cheese and other widely consumed products?

Time to Make a Healthy Change in Your Diet

This is a wake-up call. Avoid questionable ingredients and potentially dangerous foods permitted in the US food supply by ditching these processed foods completely and choosing whole, raw, preferably organic foods.
Swap out your regular meat sources for organic, grass-fed/pasture-raised versions of beef and poultry. The same applies to dairy and animal byproducts such as eggs. Follow a good nutrition plan to optimize your health.
Make this infographic your starting point. Understand these top food pretenders that should be banned from your home and this country for good. Share the information with your family and friends to help them take control of their health as well.
