Kids these days have a full schedule, much like adults. From music lessons, after school activities, tutoring sessions and play dates with friends. Our lives are full and busy, and on the go. I always have snacks in my purse for us when we have a busy day but it can be difficult to find healthy, wholesome snacks. The snack foods that are marketed for children can have anything from cancer causing artificial coloring to the unbelievable, petroleum products!
5 Petroleum Based Snacks that Cause Severe ADHD, Nervous system, Blood and Kidneys Damage
1. Pop tarts, these toaster pastries were first introduced in 1964. The Frosted Strawberry flavor has corn syrup, high fructose corn syrup, dextrose and sugar within the first 6 ingredients! These are all forms of harmful sugar. The other alarming ingredients are TBHQ which comes from petroleum and is related to butane, partially hydrogenated soybean oil that causes cellular dysfunction, and cancer causing artificial colors. (Use these ones instead)
2. Fruit snacks
come in so many “fruit” flavors and characters they maybe hard to resist, until you realize they are made mostly is artificial additives and colors. Red 3 is a commonly used food coloring, also known as E127 or Erythrosine, a petroleum product. (use these instead)
are fun colorful chocolate candies that melt in your mouth and not in your hands… These colors are artificial and are harmful when ingested. The colors utilized are, Blue #2: Is a petroleum based product that increases hyperactivity in children, increases brain tumors in lab rats and other abnormal cell development. Blue #1: Produces malignant tumors. Red #40: Damages DNA. Yellow #6: Can cause cancer and Yellow #5: All of these artificial colors are made from petroleum and can cause, in addition, allergic reactions, hyperactivity, and cancer.
Those orange, cheesy snacks. The artificial color that creates the “cheese” color is made from Yellow 6, which we know is derived from petroleum. As is the “cheese” flavoring, including, methyl benzoate and ethyl methylphenidate.
5. Teddy grams
Have been around since 1988 and are available in 5 different flavors. These tiny bears are a great size for even small fingers but they are laced with the dreaded TBHQ. TBHQ can be toxic and also cause nausea, vomiting, ringing in the ear, delirium and collapse. It is shown to cause stomach cancer in lab rats, fragment DNA and cause damage to humane lung and umbilical cells. In children it can cause anxiety, restlessness, and intensify the symptoms of ADHD.
Detox your body from Harmful Substances
Fortunately, you can detox your body from toxins by using foods in your diet such as spirulina.
( you can find it here) Spirulina has chlorophyll which is used for “detoxification.” It helps remove toxins such as heavy metals and other pollutants from the blood and liver.
It’s so unbelievable as a superfood, that NASA sends it in space for our astronauts to consume to stay healthy.
