There are many Toxic Ingredients that can be Found in Your Favorite Foods. Some are so dangerous that they have been banned in countries around the world, yet somehow they are still legal in the United States. The following "foods" and additives should be avoided at all costs if you want to safeguard your health.
Canola Oil: Over 90 percent of canola oil is GMO. Canola oil is a refined oil made from toxic rapeseeds. Canola oil is refined, bleached, degummed, and deodorized using high heat and/or chemicals in the production process in order to increase its stability. This process creates trans fats (on average about 4.6% of the finished oil is trans fats). When heated at high heat (such as in fried foods), the canola becomes even more toxic. Rats fed canola oil developed heart and kidney damage. Tran fats in general are very toxic to the brain. They disrupt neuron signalling leading to memory loss, hyperactivity and learning disabilities. Consumption of canola can lead to kidney and liver trouble, heart disease and stroke, and even alzheimer's. Why clog up your arteries with this oil?
Corn Starch: 93% of corn grown in the world is GMO. Corn is heavily Sprayed with toxic cancerous pesticides. Assume that the corn used is GMO unless otherwise indicated. Corn starch is simply another word for corn sugar. Corn starch can also be a hidden name for MSG.

Soy products: 90% of the world's soy is GMO. Unless fermented carefully using traditional methods, soy contains high levels of phytoestrogens which can contribute to the development of breast cancer, thyroid problems, calcium loss, male hormonal issues, and early development in girls. Infant soy formulas are laced with phytoestrogens.
Caramel Coloring: caramel color in brown beverages, candies and cereals, has been proven to increase the rate of cancerous and benign tumors in rats as shown by the National Toxicology Program and has been labeled by the International Agency for Research on Cancer as a possible carcinogen for humans.
High Fructose Corn Syrup: It’s cheaper and sweeter than sugar, and it is much more quickly absorbed by the body. Eating too much high fructose corn syrup can lead to insulin resistance, obesity, type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure. Very hard on the liver.
