Perception is not always reality.
You’ll find it often enough in marketing…take the housing market, for example. A small house is called “cozy.” One that’s falling apart is “a handyman’s dream.”
You get the idea.
None of the statements are technically lies…but they’re not exactly the truth, either.
It’s the same way with the antioxidant I want to tell you about today.
It’s being added to our food to increase shelf life…
And you may think nothing of it, because we only ever here GOOD things about antioxidants.
However, this is one antioxidant you don’t want anywhere NEAR your body!
The danger HIDDEN in your food
Antioxidants, as you know, are named as such because they attack free radicals. Free radicals cause oxidative stress in your body – essentially rusting you from the inside out.
In simpler terms, free radicals deteriorate your health.
Now, imagine you’re a food scientist and you have shelf stability problems.
Where do you turn to increase a food’s longevity so that consumers (read: YOU) will buy it in the grocery store?
Well, chemists have come up with an antioxidant called tBHQ. It allows restaurants and grocery stores to keep their foods longer because they won’t mold.
You’ll find it in all sorts of processed foods like chicken nuggets… crackers… microwavable popcorn… and much, much more.
What’s so bad about tBHQ?
For one thing, should you contract the flu, tBHQ will make you feel miserable for longer – regardless of whether you already had the flu earlier in the year or received a flu vaccine.
You see, it completely destroys your immune system’s memory.
That’s a big problem—especially for seniors!
No; your best bet is to just STAY AWAY from the “secret poisons” hidden inside our food.
Eat like your ancestors
Folks, this is just further proof processed foods are bad for you. You should be avoiding them at all costs – because it will cost you your health.
By eating like your ancestors (a.k.a. the Paleo diet), you’ll effortlessly break free from processed foods AND provide myriad other benefits, such as:
- A lower risk of dementia
- A better heart and cardiovascular system
- A sharper brain
- More energy
- And weight loss!
It’s easy enough to accomplish. You’ll primarily eat lean meats, lots of vegetables, and healthy fats from nuts and seeds, and fruit.
And you’ll guarantee you’re not getting exposed to some chemist’s latest science experiment!
