Do you know which seven dangerous food
ingredients to watch out for in your groceries?
These are the “deadly seven,” as I call
them, and they can directly promote heart disease, migraines,
obesity, outrageous food cravings, osteoporosis, diabetes and even
The top three most dangerous ingredients I’ve found in my research
Sodium nitrite - causes cancer,
found in processed meats like hot dogs, bacon, sausage. Used
to make meats appear red (a color fixer chemical).
Hydrogenated oils - causes heart
disease, nutritional deficiencies, general deterioration of
cellular health, and much more. Found in cookies, crackers,
margarine and many “manufactured” foods. Used to make oils
stay in the food, extending shelf life. Sometimes also
called “plastic fat.”
monosodium glutamate and others (see below). These neurotoxic chemical additives directly harm nerve cells,
over-exciting them to the point of cell death, according to
Dr. Russell Blaylock. They’re found in diet soda, canned
soup, salad dressing, breakfast sausage and even many
manufactured vegetarian foods. They’re used to add flavor to
over-processed, boring foods that have had the life cooked
out of them.
Want to know more about the genuine
dangers posed by toxic food ingredients and additives? I’ll share
more with you in this email, but first let me invite you to check
out the tell-all book I’ve written on the subject: “Grocery
Grocery Warning exposes the truth that food companies will never
admit to and the mainstream media will never print (because they
receive advertising funds from food companies, of course!).
It reveals, in shocking detail, exactly which ingredients compromise
your health (and how they do it). Based on thousands of hours of
research, and quotations from the top doctors, authors and
nutritionists, Grocery Warning tells you the truth about
foods and groceries that will empower you with life-changing
Did you know, for example, that:
Feeding children hot dogs
increases their risk of brain cancer by 300%?
Strawberry yogurt, fruit punch
and other red-looking grocery products are often colored
with dead, ground-up cochineal beetles? The ingredient is
called “carmine,” and it’s made from insects. It’s listed
right on the label of many of your favorite foods.
Food companies now “hide”
safe-sounding ingredients like yeast extract or torula
Many Florida oranges are
actually dipped in an artificial orange dye in order to make
them more visually appealing? It’s the same dye that’s been
banned for use in foods because of cancer risk.
Girl Scout cookies are still
made with hydrogenated oils that contain trans fatty acids?
Many so-called “healthy” or
vegetarian foods also contain the very same offending
ingredients as conventional groceries?
Eating just one serving of
processed meats each day increases your risk of pancreatic
cancer by 67%?
One artificial color additive
causes behavioral disorders in children? And that 80% of
children diagnosed with ADHD can be outright cured of the
condition in two weeks by avoiding certain ingredients?
The #1 ingredient in Slim Fast
meal replacement shake (powder form) is sugar?
Some guacamole dips don’t even
contain avocado? Instead, they’re made with hydrogenated
soybean oil and artificial colors.
Everything I’m sharing here is
It’s all quite shocking, yes, but this is
information you need to know if you want to feed yourself - and your
family - foods that actually promote health instead of disease.
about metabolic disruptors
Nearly all modern diseases are caused by what I call “metabolic
These are common ingredients, such as
white flour and sugar, that prevent your body from healing.
Unfortunately, metabolic disruptors are used in almost all
commercially prepared foods, which means most products on your
grocer’s shelves contribute to poor health. But if you know what to
look for, you can fill your cart with foods that will help you live
a longer more vibrant life.
That’s why I created the Grocery Warning System.
This system will give you the
information you need to make the healthiest shopping choices at the
grocery store. You’ll learn which ingredients have been linked to
disease, as well as important nutrients that have been shown to
prevent and reverse cancer, heart disease, diabetes, obesity, and
other degenerative diseases.

and behavioral disorders.

So how do food companies manage to hide excitotoxins and taste
additives to their foods?
It’s easy: They just keep changing the
words to confuse consumers. Once customers learned to avoid

ingredients “stacking” trick
Food companies also use the ingredients stacking trick to
intentionally leave you with the wrong impression about what’s
really in their food products.
For example, one company makes a nutrition bar that’s absolutely
loaded with sugar, but they way they’ve arranged the ingredients
prevents sugar from appearing as the #1 ingredient. Instead, the
first ingredient is rice.
But looking down the label, you’ll find
all the following forms of sugar, all in the same nutrition bar:
High-fructose corn syrup
Corn syrup solids
Add all these up, and the #1 component
in the bar is, indeed, sugar (or sugary substances). But the
manufacturer has used ingredients stacking to make you think the top
ingredient is actually rice.
It’s a clever, dishonest technique used by food companies to lie
with food labels.
Remember, the longer the ingredients label, the less healthy the
food. Read those ingredients lists before buying foods, and if you
discover chemical names that you can’t pronounce, don’t buy the
