Artificial food additives such as stabilizers, preservatives, and flavorings are used in food to ensure uniform color, flavor, texture, and longevity. The average additive consumption including pesticides is about nine to 10 pounds per person per year. Unfortunately, the body treats these chemical base compounds as poison since they have no redeeming value other than to trick our senses. Research has shown that many of these additives cause hyperactivity, behavioral changes, allergies, tumors, cancer, and other serious ailments. Since 1959, over 25 chemical food additives have been banned, because they cause cancer or other diseases in lab animals. Nevertheless, synthetic food additives continue to be used in our food supply, so if you would like to eat a chemical free diet, go organic. If you would like to learn more about why to eat organic food and how to live naturally, you can read this informative book, The Beginners Guide to Natural Living.
