Just like not everyone is sensitive to Monosodium Glutamate and how nitrates and nitrites in lunchmeat protect us from botulin poisoning, many of our common food additives are fairly benign. Some, however, are not... or are better used elsewhere.

Why do our governments allow food companies to 'poison' us with ALL this crap?!

Does this really surprise anyone?? Everyone needs to know these things so they can make smarter choices. If people stop buying this shit, they will stop making it! Processed food is the devil... As is our government! All they care about is money. Disgusting.
