Food additives & toxins changing our children


Why do I say additives and toxins are changing our children? Because these are being consumed and inhaled by them, negatively impacting their behavior, health and overall wellbeing.  Additives and toxins are impacting the real nature of our children,  preventing them to be the best version of themselves.

The more we feed our children these additives and the more they are exposed to hazards in the air, the more affected they will become by them, changing their health, behavior, moods, appearance…all in a negative way.

  • Children are now facing hazards that were neither known nor imagined a few decades ago.  There has been more than 85,000 synthetic chemicals introduced in our society since the early 1900’s.  The big issue with this, is that only a very, very small percentage, in the hundreds, have been tested for safety with humans. Industrial chemicals do NOT have to be tested before they are out on the market. Federal government rarely required the information necessary to assess human safety from the producers.
  • Of the top 20 chemicals discharged to the environment, nearly 75% are known or suspected to be toxic to the developing human brain! what the heck?!
  • The Food Standards Agency (FSA) commissioned new research for the affect of food additives children’s behavior.  Part of the earlier results showed that mixtures of artificial food coloring and preservative sodium benzoate can affect children’s behavior according to the Southampton Study.
  • There are 11 Food ingredients banned outside the U.S. but still in our grocery shelves

Most suspected food additives affecting our family:
  1. Artificial coloring
    • suspected of causing increased hyperactivity in children
    • may be a leading cause of attention deficit disorder/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
    • cause tumors of the immune system
  2. High Fructose Syrup (HFCS)
    • raise risk of obesity and type 2 diabetes
  3. Aspartame
    • suspected of causing cancer, seizures, headaches, mood swings, even brain tumors
  4. Enriched Flour
    • Striped of nutrients
    • can impact blood sugar and contribute to obesity
  5. Monosodium glutamate (MSG), hydrolyzed soy protein and autolyzed yeast
    • animals treated with MSG developed brain lesions impacting development and disrupted the neural centers responsible for hormone function
    • Causes obesity and liver disease
  6. Artificial Sweeteners (Aspartame, Acesulfame potassium, Saccharin, Sucralose, sugar alcohol)
    • Research shows links to cancer
  7. Nitrates/Nitrites
    • Processed meat have been classified as carcinogenic to humans Source IARC
    • linked to reduced brain activity, impaired thyroid function and
  8. Brominated vegetable oil (BVO)
    • Bromine, chemical whose vapors can be corrosive or toxic
    • Reduces immune defenses and can lead to allergic reactions, memory loss, nerve problems
    • Just two ounces of a 2% solution of BVO can severely poison a child
  9. Hydrogenated Oils (Trans fat)
    • linked to increased risk of coronary artery disease, heart disease and type 2 diabetes
  10. Sodium benzoate (BHA/BHT)
    • linked to increased hyperactivity in children, contributes to ADHD symptoms
    • may be link to cancer
    • can cause asthmatic attacks, hives, allergic reactions
    • used to produce fuel, petroleum products
  11. Pesticides
    • can cause memory loss, altered mood, reduced motor skills, asthma, allergies
    • also linked with cancer and hormone disruption
    • problems with reproduction and fetal development


Most suspected toxins/chmicals affecting our environment and family:
  1. BPA
    • Imitate estrogen
  2. Dioxin
    • efects reproductive and immune system
  3. Atrazine
    • This herbicide turned male frogs into females
  4. Phthalates
    1. linked to lower sperm count
  5. Perchlorate
    • component in rocket fuel
    • competes with iodine needed for proper metabolism and brain development
  6. Fired Retardants (PBDE’s)
    • imitate thyroid hormone and disrupt their activity
  7. Lead
    • very damaging
  8. Arsenic
    • low amounts can interfere with normal hormonal function
    • linked to weight gain and insulin resistance
  9. Mercury
    • can interfere with brain development in unborn babies
  10. Perfluorinated chemicals (PFC’s)
    • Found to impact thyroid and sex hormone levels
  11. Organosphosphate pesticides
    • developed by the NAzis’ for chemical warfare, but never used
    • Used now days by American scientists to develop a long list of pesticides that target the nervous system
  12. Glycol Ethers
    • linked to lower sperm counts as well as respiratory distress in children
