Favorite Article: Mike Adams' Article: 10 Worst Toxins Hidden in Foods & Supplements

I was recently sent a great article that's worth checking out, 10 Worst Toxins Hidden in Vitamins, Supplements, & Health Foods written by Mike Adams, editor of  

The article discusses important information we should all be familiar with when buying food & supplements such as maltodextrin, GMOs, MSG, & other additives that can be easily overlooked but do great harm to our bodies. An investigative journalist & activist in the natural food industry for over a decade, Mr. Adams routinely runs laboratory tests on products to ensure the quality of the product meets with the information on the labels, government guidelines, etc. Mr. Adams also spot checks product formulations & certified organic food production, interviewing companies as a supervisor of a USDA-certified organic food production & packing facility.

Here are the 10 worst toxins that the article discusses:
1) Maltodextrin
2) Vitamin C
3) Hexane-extracted soy & rice protein
4) High levels of Aluminum in detox products
5) Lead & arsenic in herbs from Chinese
6) Inorganic minerals in cheap vitamins
7) Carrageenan
8) Acrylamides
9) Hidden MSG/ Yeast Extract (See my article on Yeast Extract & MSG)
10) Fluoride in Green Tea

An advocate for health & consumer information, Mr. Adams presents clear and sound information based on his first hand experience in the health food business, as well as personal tips that he uses to keep healthy. I encourage you to check out his website & try to apply at least one of his tips this month.
