8 'Foods' Americans Eat That Are Banned In Other Countries

We live in a country full of people trying to get healthier. People are starting exercise plans, incorporating superfoods into their diet, and generally becoming more aware of what it means to be ‘healthy.’

Unfortunately, becoming healthier is made much more difficult by the many large food corporations which value profit over health and sustainability, and by the FDA, which doesn’t always do a good job of protecting us from the many dangerous preservatives and additives found in our food.

This places the burden on us to educate ourselves and know what to avoid. For starters, here are 8 of the worst offenders – which are banned in certain other countries, but not in the US.

Artificial Food Colorings

Some artificial food coloring and dyes are derived from petroleum—the same petroleum used to make gasoline, asphalt and tar. Although it should be obvious that humans shouldn’t be consuming this stuff, we’ll list the health risks nonetheless: brain cancer, hyperactivity in children, and nerve-cell deterioration have all been linked to its consumption.

Found in: Pretty much everything processed and non-organic that does not get its color from real fruits, vegetables, spices or herbs.

Banned in: France, Finland, Norway, the UK and Austria

Antibiotic-Filled Meat

Antibiotics are commonly fed to US farm animals to cause them to grow faster, and to protect them from illnesses caused by the filthy conditions of their dwellings. This practice may be linked to an increase in antibiotic-resistant bacteria, which is a huge danger to both humans and animals

Found in: Factory-farmed beef, salmon, and poultry

Banned in: European Union, Australia and New Zealand

Fat Free Foods Containing Olestra/Olean

We’ve been told that ‘fat-free’ and ‘light’ foods are better for us, but what you may not know is that many of these foods contain Olestra, a fat substitute which can cause anal leakage and vitamin deletion.

Found in: Many fat-free foods, especially chips and other processed snacks

Banned in: The UK and Canada, to name only a few

Genetically Engineered Foods

Although we don’t yet know the long-term effects of GMOs on humans, we do have evidence that they may be catastrophic for animals’ health. Some research has found that animals fed diets containing genetically modified foods have suffered tumors, birth defects, intestinal and organ damage and sterility by the third generation.

Found in: Papayas, corn, soy, and certain other crops

Banned in: France, Germany, Austria, Greece, Hungary and Luxembourg

Drinks Containing Brominated Vegetable Oil (BVO)

This addition to some sports drinks and sodas acts as an emulsifier, which means it stops the beverage’s flavor from separating and floating to the top of the drink. Too much of this nasty stuff can cause thyroid problems, autoimmune diseases, cancer, organ system damage and birth defects.

Found in: Sports drinks and some citrus flavored sodas

Banned in: Over 100 countries

Foods Containing Flour Bleached With Azodicarbonamide (ADA)

Flour will naturally whiten in about a week, but this apparently is too long for some American food companies, who use this chemical, found in rubber products including yoga mats, to speed up the process. ADA is linked to increase the risk of asthma, allergies, and skin problems.

Found In: White flour, processed bread, boxed pasta and baked goods

Banned In: Many countries including Singapore, where a food manufacturer can get up to 15 years in prison for adding it to their food products.

Hormone-Infused Meat and Dairy

Some farms (especially factory farms) inject synthetic hormones like rBGH and rBST into cows to boost growth and milk production. These fake hormones are not only bad for the animals, they have also been linked to breast, colon, and prostate cancers and infertility in humans.

Found in: Cow’s milk and dairy products

Banned in: This practice is banned all over the European Union, as well as in Australia, New Zealand, Canada and Japan.

Poultry Containing Arsenic

This chemical is used in some chicken feed to make the meat appear pinker and fresher. Arsenic is a poison—enough said.

Found in: Poultry

Banned in: The European Union, since 1999

For the sake of you and your family’s health, make it a habit to read labels, choose grass-fed meats, keep a look out for strangely-colored food items, and go organic whenever possible.

Which Banana Would You Eat? Your Answer May Have An Effect On Your Health

I think people who don’t like bananas are very rare. Almost there isn’t a person who doesn’t eat banana as part of the breakfast or as a snack, but the real banana lovers go further considering even the ripeness of the banana. There are some people who love green bananas, while others love their bananas to be overripe and almost brown.

The bananas with their potassium, along with the other vitamins and nutrients are very healthy choice all around. Writer Adda Bjarnadottir, MS for Authority Nutrition, says that they are good for the digestion, for the health of the heart and also can help us to lose some weight. What is really interesting is that the different colors of the banana mean different health benefits. Continue reading and find out what color of the banana would be the most beneficial to your health.
Green Bananas contain resistant starch. According to Jill Corleone, a registered dietitian, this type of starch is more like fiber in our bodies and that can help us to reduce the risk of diabetes and heart diseases, by lowering the levels of blood sugar and blood cholesterol levels. Also, because the bananas in this color are high in fiber, they can help the appetite stay in check and promote weight loss. Furthermore, they are low in glycemic index so that makes them perfect snack for the ones who need to control the blood sugar levels.

Yellow, Firm Bananas are rich in antioxidants that protect our bodies from various illnesses. The bananas have more sugar as they are getting older, but besides they have more sugar than the green ones, this kind of bananas also contain dopamine, an antioxidant which can reduce the risks of heart diseases and degenerative diseases. Although the dopamine is usually known that acts as feel-good chemical in the brain, that’s not the case with the dopamine in the banana. The dopamine from the banana acts like strong antioxidant without altering the hormones or the mood.

Yellow Bananas with Brown Spots aren’t as healthy as the younger ones, but they still contain a lot of antioxidants. Researchers from Teikyo University found out that bananas in this color can fight cancer. They have proven that the amount of Tumor Necrosis Factor (TNF) is much more higher in the spotted bananas than the green ones. According to PubMed, TNF is helping to break down the abnormal cells in the body, namely cancerous tumors. The substance that helps fight cancer also can improve the immune system by pointing the white blood cells in to the inflamed or infected areas.

Brown Bananas are the sugariest, but still have high levels of potassium. Linus Puling Institute notes that foods rich in potassium can help to prevent conditions like osteoporosis. This kind of banana also contains tryptophan, an amino acid found like mood-altering. Tryptophan regulates the moods, so can lower the symptoms of depression, anxiety and also can help us to sleep better. The brown bananas would also be a perfect for the ones with digestive issues because they are very easy to digest. The overripe bananas need to be kept in the refrigerator because they start to lose the nutrients.

No matter the color of the banana they are still super healthy. Most of the people eat bananas in particular color just because of their own preferences not even knowing the benefits of the color.

However, we highly recommend you to consume bananas every day. Just add them in a smoothie, cereal bowl or eat them as a snack. Because of the peel they are protected from pesticides and pollutions. Also the peel makes them perfect to travel with.

Healing Your Physical Apparatus

Incorporating common sense information with the results of scientific studies and then, allowing my gut instinct to be the deciding factor in most every personal "cross road" decision has been my guidepost throughout this lifetime. I have rarely allowed any outside factor to be more of an influence over my decisions than my own "knowing" resources . We all have the ability to look within to find the answers to our questions without formal education in the particular area of our curiosity.

It is our modern society that demands the diplomas and the certificates in order to pass on information to others. Much knowledge has been lost due to the rigid rules of our societies and that which has been communicated over the centuries ... has been distorted usually to protect the existence of another community of thought.

Our own thought patterns effect the health of our body. Every physical illness that we have stems from an underlying negative emotional thought pattern. If we can understand the illness, we then, can evaluate the cause and ultimately rid the body of the dis-ease. Dis-ease is nothing more than our not being in harmony (or dis-chord) with ourselves.

The following information is meant to assist you on your journey toward healing ... first at the emotional level and then, because of the healing at the emotional level, your physical "apparatus", your body, will then, heal also.

This information has been available to any and all who has ever even been remotely curious about "why we get what we get" for a very long time ... but most of us have not taken the time nor given this concept the credence it most assuredly deserves. After all ... there are so many of us in this society who "feed" off of the misfortune of others ... including the illnesses and diseases of others. There are many who "maintain" illness and disease in others because of their relying on it to justify their OWN existence. Please be aware of these vampires! (yet, another article) Learn to discern!
