80% of American ‘junk food’ banned?

A poster at Camp Pendleton’s 21-Area Health Promotion Center describes the effects of junk food that many Marines and sailors consume.


It is claimed that 80% of junk food that Americans consumed is banned in parts of the world:

Whether it’s toxic soda brands like Mountain Dew, or sugary artificial cereals and carcinogenic ‘potato’ chips, around 80% of the processed food variety within the US actually contains ingredients that are banned around the world in countries like Canada and the United Kingdom. As a matter of fact, sometimes they’re banned throughout the entire European Union. The FDA, however, seems quite alright with these disease-linked substances lurking within the food supply.

And the USDA? Oh, well they also went ahead and approved the very same toxic pesticide that the EU banned just days earlier over significant health concerns and links to the destruction of the bee population — a population which we need in order to generate a staple crop supply for the entire globe.

From substances like Olestra (used in low fat products and linked to gastrointestinal disorders and of course increased weight gain ironically enough) to thyroid-decimating brominated vegetable oil, hundreds of thousands of products were found to be utilizing these disease-riddled ingredients that the rest of the world shuns due to health concernshttp://intellihub.com/2013/06/26/80-of-processed-foods-in-us-are-banned-in-other-nations/#rssowlmlink

I would add that mainly what is banned globally are gmo-ingredients such as high-fructose corn syrup, but there are other banned ingredients as well.

Oddly, years ago, the USA banned cyclamates (a type of sweetener) because it was considered carcinogenic (could cause cancer), but allowed saccharin (another artificial sweetener).  About the same time, Canada banned saccharin as a carcinogen, but allowed cyclamates.

Junk food probably contains, on average, more chemical additives than other foods, and certainly more than organic non-processed foods. Chemical additives have been suspected to be a link to obesity (see Alarming Obesity Rates Expected, But Might a Chemical Additive be Partially Responsible?), as have fats and certain other items many Americans consume (see Traditional ‘Southern diet’ linked to increase risk of stroke).

The Bible warns about obesity, getting fat, and excessive eating.

But it also warns about eating things that are not really food:

2 Why do you spend money for what is not bread,
And your wages for what does not satisfy?
Listen carefully to Me, and eat what is good (Isaiah 55:2).

And refined processed rolls, chemical additives, and some other items commonly associated with junk foods could be consistent with that warning.

But even ignoring ‘fast food,’ Americans often do not eat what is good. They eat too many chemically-laced highly processed foods. Many eat a lot of white bread, which is really not real bread as it has had the wheat germ and other natural components removed. This makes an inferior product which then is sprayed with synthetic B vitamins and other “nutrients” to “fortify” it. If you notice “B vitamins” added to “fortify” refined grain products or in so-called “natural” vitamin supplements (like thiamin mononitrate, thiamin HCL, folic acid, pantothenic acid, pyridoxine hydrochloride, cyanocobalamin), realize that these are basically petroleum derivatives and are not the same form of vitamins that are actually found in real, natural, food.

But most Americans consume the synthetics, chemicals, and refined grains.

The other problem is that Americans eat too much. The Bible specifically warns against this (Deuteronomy 21:18-21; Proverbs 23:20-21)
