Credit: Maria Lin KimHave you ever had a food product that you just couldn’t stop eating?  It could be the carefully orchestrated work of a food scientist.  There are over 3,000 additives found in processed foods on store shelves, and perhaps in your pantry.   In 2018, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration banned seven artificial flavorings known to cause cancer in lab animals.  But the agency did not make that move until a coalition of leading health groups filed a lawsuit.   The problem is, the FDA is not proactive in looking out for consumers.  We have to be proactive and protective of ourselves.   Today we have three simple steps you can take to eliminate the mystery that could be lurking in your shopping cart and pantry.  Click the play button above to hear step four in our Spring Into Ultimate Wellness series.
