#6 is especially important
by Christina Sarich, Natural Society:
Did you know that various food ingredients and foods found in the United States are actually banned in other countries? Indeed, some nations have found the following foods so bad for your health that they have made them illegal, yet the US Food and Drug Administration says to eat up!
Here are 6 foods you might want to avoid as other food watchdog agencies had enough sense to ban them:
1. Olean (Olestra) Found in ‘Fat Free’ Foods
Many Americans get suckered into eating olean, also known as olestra, because they purchase fat-free foods hoping to get their junk food fix without the extra calories. The only problem is that olean isn’t processed by the human body, and can lead to diarrhea, while interfering with the absorption of important fat-soluble vitamins such as A,D, E, and K. Go for some baked potato chips if you’re looking for a healthier chip option, and just skip the olean.
