According to Medical Daily, pediatricians say that “Flamin’ Hot Cheetos send multiple children to the emergency room each year.” Cheetos that are made with maltodextrin, salt, sugar, monosodium glutamate, yeast extract, citric acid, Red 40 Lake, Yellow 6 Lake, Yellow 6, Yellow 5 can cause severe abdominal pain, ulcers and gastritis.
“We have a population who loves to eat the hot, spicy, not-real foods, and they come in [to the emergency room] with these real complaints,” according to the report. “The kids are being set up for ulcerations, erosions and… peptic ulcer disease.”
Toxic Ingredients in Cheetos
Red 40 is a certified color that comes from petroleum distillates or coal tars.
Multiple studies published in journals such as Pediatrics, The Lancet, and Journal of Pediatrics show that some kids with ADD/ADHD are adversely affected by artificial food dyes. Red 40 also contains p-Cresidine, which the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services says is “reasonably anticipated” to be a human carcinogen.
FDA tests demonstrate that Red 40, Yellow 5, and Yellow 6 dyes are tainted with low levels of cancer-causing compounds, including benzidine and 4-aminobiphenyl in Yellow 5.
Yellow 5 has been shown to damage the ability of nerve cells to send and receive signals and may cause allergic reactions, including bronchial asthma.
Similar to other dyes, it is heavily linked to hyperactivity, especially in children. Multiple studies shows it to have carcinogenic reactions in mice.
However, the FDA continues to justify the horrible side effects of artificial dyes on our bodes in spite of multiple studies highlighting these effects.
Choose healthier options for your family.
I highly recommend these bars which include 10 different superfoods – each specifically selected for their unique benefits – plus, 100% grass fed bone broth protein for healthy bones, muscles, skin, blood vessels, and more. Because they contain no grains, sugar, or soy, but do contain superfoods and bone broth protein, these are my go-to bars almost every morning for a quick and easy breakfast.
DETOX TOXINS FROM YOUR BODY
If you want your liver to function properly (eliminate toxins and cleanse all the impurities) you should consume reishi mushrooms daily. In, a study in Food and Chemical Toxicology showed that using reishi mushroom reversed chemical-driven liver damage in mice. Reishi mushroom is known for its anti cancer properties. It eliminates free radicals and promotes liver cell regeneration. Just take 1/2 tablespoon a day!
