Nearly everyone in modern society eats food containing artificial or highly processed additives. Many people consume dozens of food additives daily, and even devout whole-food enthusiasts may consume more of them than they realize. However, few consumers understand what additives really are or how they are made.
Most premade foods, even those labeled “natural” and “organic,” contain ingredients manufactured using industrial chemicals and processes that few of us would knowingly choose for our food. A great many additives (even many “natural” ones) are made from petrochemicals - something no human is meant to ingest - and contain trace amounts of toxic chemical solvents. Some are hidden sources of genetically modified organisms (GMOs).
