Columbia, MD (PRWEB) August 14, 2008
Online grocery safety watchdog GroceryDanger.com has today warned consumers of the underlying detrimental health impact of certain chemicals discovered in everyday grocery products, which have been proven to fuel degenerative diseases.
GroceryDanger.com has found a number of harmful chemicals, used as flavorings, colorings and preservatives, which have toxic properties, and are present in potentially harmful doses in numerous grocery products, including well-known, branded goods.
Sampling a cross-section of grocery products, GroceryDanger.com discovered several chemicals known to be harmful in a number of products, including household brand names, which has prompted today's announcement.
GroceryDanger.com has issued a warning to consumers as to the importance of getting to know food labeling and which chemicals are known to cause health problems.
A number of chemicals used in food production have been scientifically proven to cause cancer, heart disease, migraines, obesity, diabetes, and a host of other problems, prompting GroceryDanger.com to urge consumers to consider what goes in to the manufacturing of the products they consume.
Robert Key of GroceryDanger.com blames in part the food regulation authorities, poor product labeling and the political influence of the food industry in permitting the widespread acceptance of toxic chemicals into ordinary foodstuffs .
"The majority of Americans are completely unaware that their personal health and wellness has been compromised with ingredients that fuel the very diseases that they want to avoid. There is a clear and present danger of grocery products that contain enough toxic ingredients that they should be labeled with "black-box" warnings to warn consumers.
"We think a great deal of this problem comes from the political influence of the food industry, and a persistent disregard of consumer safety in favor of profits. As far as we're concerned, it's time the public were made well aware of the chemicals at play in the grocery products they buy to enable them to make better food choices for a healthier lifestyle and to beat the very conditions they're trying to avoid."
