The Danger of Food Additives and How They Affect Your Body

In general, the more food we eat in its natural state – without additives – and the less it is refined, the healthier it will be for us.

Food can affect the mind, and deficiencies of certain elements in the body can promote mental depression.” -Ezra Taft Benson

What is a food additive?

A substance added to food to enhance its flavor or appearance or to preserve it.

Some old school additives are okay like salting or pickling, unfortunately these days most additives are artificial, chemical cocktails.

Dangerous food additives can be found in most processed foods which make up the majority of American diets.

The best ways to avoid food additives is to cut back on eating processed foods and instead focus your meals on whole, natural foods.

If you decide to eat processed foods, choose organic varieties and make sure to read the label and avoid foods that contain additives.

The Danger of Food Additives

Research about the danger of food additives was published in the medical journal, The Lancet, in 2007 and revealed what anyone with a modicum of brain activity should have known already – there was a clear link between food and drink additives and hyperactive behavior in children.

Scientists from the University of Southampton conducted the research on nearly 300 three-year old and eight year old children, none of whom suffered from hyperactivity disorder.

They drank a mixture of additives that reflected the average daily additive intake of a British child, and afterwards they were observed to become “boisterous and lose concentration.”

They were not able to play with one toy or complete one task and they exhibited what was called “impulsive behavior.” The eight year olds were not able to complete a 15 minute computer exercise.

Look at these findings in their entirety: the observed effects after drinking these chemical cocktails included hyperactive and compulsive behavior, making the children become boisterous and lose concentration, and not be able to play with one toy or complete one task.

What are the symptoms of Attention Deficit Disorder?

  •  Having trouble keeping attention on tasks or play activities.
  •  Do not follow instructions and fail to finish schoolwork, jobs or activities.
  •  Are easily distracted.
  •  Have trouble playing or enjoying leisure activities quietly.
  •  Are “on the go” or act as if “driven by a motor.”
  •  Exhibit impulsive and compulsive behavior.

Time To Change

The behavior traits of kids in an official additives trial and those given mind-altering drugs like Ritalin for “behavior disorder” are the same.

No wonder, then, that the astonishing rise in the use of these mind-altering drugs has followed the astonishing rise in the mind-altering additives in food and drink.

At least the overwhelming majority of child behavior problems are caused by their brain and body computer systems being scrambled by the chemical and electrical war that has been declared on the children and young people in the world.

Solve the problem at its root and remove artificial foods from your diet.

The best way to get rid of a problem is not to find a solution, but to remove the cause. In this case, the cause is the crap we give children to eat and drink.

John Tyson, the father of a Ritalin victim, took his son to the Cactus Clinic at the University of Teesside School of Sciences & Law in the North East of England where they don’t use drugs to treat behavior.

Clinic manager, Amanda Clarkson, says: “Attention disorders are not diseases, but patterns of inappropriate behavior.”

Yes, they are; and they can be changed by working with children, not drugging them; and by changing the diet that is so often the subliminal (below awareness) villain in the background.

John Tyson removed gluten, wheat and dairy foods from his son’s diet and gave him mineral supplements.

The effect was clear to see:

After six weeks, the benefits were noticeable. After three months, I knew I was getting my boy back. I think it’s wicked how children are being doped when there are alternatives.


Omega 3 Fish Oils as an alternative

Studies in England and Australia have found that six capsules a day of fish oil can vastly improve children’s behavior and is more effective than Ritalin and related drugs without any of the “side-effects.”

One mother, Rachel Gow, told of the amazing transformation in her son, Nathaniel, after she replaced the Ritalin-like drug Concerta, with fish oil.

She described how within days of starting the Concerta medication for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder her son lost his appetite and suffered violent mood swings:

He stopped eating, he wasn’t sleeping and I couldn’t get him away from his PlayStation – it had a hypnotic effect on him. He was focusing on it but in a disturbing way. It was as if his soul had gone.

He was a wide-eyed shadow of his former self.

His mood swings were extreme – he went from hysteria to uncontrollable anger to crying like a baby within minutes. Anything could set him off.

He wasn’t Nathaniel; he wasn’t my son. It was frightening.

Rachel replaced the drug with six Omega 3 fish-oil capsules a day and his symptoms all but vanished.

She said: “We’ve noticed a dramatic reduction in his hyperactivity; he is much happier, doesn’t have the mood swings and his concentration has improved.

The ingredients in the fish oil helped to balance the chemical imbalances that were causing the imbalanced behavior in a destabilized body system caused by the chemical cocktails in the drugs.

I know that it is not always easy or practical to get whole, healthy organic foods all the time.

But I definitely recommend that you slowly begin removing artificial foods and additives from your diet and replacing them with whole, healthy ones.

P.S. Avoid artificial sweeteners like aspartame at all costs.
