Scary and shocking food facts

Titanium dioxide is a food additive found in a variety of foods such as coffee creamer, icing, and icing sugar. But it can also be found in paints, sunscreens, and laundry detergent. The International Agency for Research on Cancer has classified it as a human carcinogen. Therefore, it is better to make the cream yourself.

Ever wondered what is actually in Twinkie's brownie? Awful that this is generally sold as food! It contains the most unhealthy types of fats, vitamins, artificial colors and flavors made from oil. Interestingly, James Colquhoun (director of the film “Food Matters”) found 37 ingredients in its composition, but only 5 of them are known: flour, eggs, water, sugar and table salt.

Why should food be thoroughly washed, sieved and cleaned before cooking? Martin Bucknavage (Senior Food Safety Consultant at Pennsylvania State University) says frozen vegetables can contain aphids, thrips and mites. Spices can contain sticks, stones, burlap and even crushed cigarette butts, and flour can contain rodent excrement.

According to WHO (World Health Organization)

spoiled food kills 420,000 every year. Moreover, young children account for more than a quarter of all deaths. For this reason, about 600 million people fall ill every year.
