Synthetic Antioxidant Preservative. A chemical cousin to BHA, BHT accumulates in the lungs and liver and has been associated with developmental effects, thyroid changes, and lung and liver tumors in animal studies.
An industrial chemical used to make polycarbonate plastics. Found in many hard plastics and epoxy resins that coat the inside of food and drink cans, research on BPA has shown disruption of hormone production and regulation, heart disease, and an increased risk of cancer.
Natural Red Dye. Produced from dried female cochineal insects, Carmine has been known to cause severe allergic reactions and anaphylactic shock in some individuals.
Artificial Sweeteners. 30 times sweeter than table sugar, studies have associated Cyclamates with bladder tumors in rodents, causing a swift ban by the FDA.
Evergreen shrub native to Central Asia. Traditionally used in Chinese Medicine, Ephedra Sinica has been banned in the FDA due to its abuse in weight loss products. Ephedra abuse has been linked to adverse cardiovascular effects including hypertension, heart attack, and stroke.
Artificial Vanilla + Flavor Enhancer. More potent that synthetic vanillin, Ethyl Vanillin is manufactured from petrochemicals and has been associated with allergic reactions and headaches.
Sterilizing Agent. Used to sterilize food, botanical, and spices -- ETO is recognized as a Class 1 Carcinogen. Highly toxic to the kidneys, liver, and nerves; chronic exposure to ETO can lead to genetic and nerve damage, muscle weakness, and impaired brain function.
Artificial Coloring. FD&C pigments often contain aluminum, lead, and mercury. They have been linked to cancer, allergic reactions, and hyperactivity in children.
Food Additive. A common additive used to aid in the processing of food and improve flavor, texture, appearance, and shelf-life. Propylene glycol can be toxic to the kidneys, liver, and nervous system.
Corn Starch based Sweetener. High intakes of HFCS are a major contributor to fatty liver disease, obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and inflammation.
Oil Fillers [Used in Softgels]. Used by manufacturers to increase shelf life and save costs, the FDA has removed hydrogenated oils from its Generally Recognized as Safe List due to its contributions to heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and inflammation.
Sterilizing Agent. Food Irradiation is the process of applying ionizing radiation to food in order to extend shelf life and sterilize food. Banned in dietary supplements in the U.S., irradiation lacks long-term safety studies.
Tablet Coating. PEG coating creates smooth, easy to swallow tablets, however it is often contaminated with carcinogens and polycyclic aromatic compounds.
Synthetic Antioxidant Preservative. A known carcinogen, consumption of Propyl Gallate has been associated with stomach and skin irritability, allergic reactions, induced asthma, and endocrine disruption.
Artificial Sweetener. 300 times sweeter than sugar and carcinogenic for the urinary bladder in rodents, recent studies have shown saccharin to have negative effects on gut bacteria, blood sugar levels, glucose intolerance, and a higher risk of metabolic disease.
Artificial Preservative. When combined with Vitamin C, Benzene is formed, which is carcinogenic
Sugar Alcohol. Used as a sweetener, Sorbitol can cause bloating, gas, and diarrhea.
Artificial Sweetener. Used a sugar substitute, animal studies have linked Sucralose to leukemia and negative effects on healthy gut bacteria. In human studies, Sucralose has been associated with bowel inflammation and negative effects on healthy GI flora.
Preservatives. Often added during manufacturing to prevent spoilage and oxidation, sulfites can cause adverse reactions, such as induced asthma, anaphylaxis, and other allergic reactions in sensitive individuals.
Artificial Vanilla Flavor. Manufactured from petrochemicals or genetically modified yeast, synthetic vanillin is used to imitate natural vanilla. Adverse effects include; allergic reactions, migraine, and a disruption to the GI tract.
Synthetic Antioxidant. Chemical cousins to BHA and BHT, TBHQ is tumorigenic and neurotoxic. It can cause liver enlargement, neurotoxic effects, convulsion, and is known to trigger food allergies.
Colorant + Additive. Most notably used to enhance and brighten white foods, Titanium Dioxide is also used to increase the shelf life of foods that are sensitive to UV light. It has been classified as a Class 2B carcinogen meaning that it could possibly be carcinogenic to humans.
