100 Days to Health - Day 036 | Read Labels

Week 6 – Day 36

READING LABELS

Additives are the bodies invisible enemies – we can’t see them, often they are not listed on packaged food. 
Additives seem to adversely affect so many people, especially children. We are exposed to these food additives through any fast food and most manufactured food products. 
Although the amounts of additives used by manufacturers are legal, the combined effect of these substances can cause unnecessary discomfort and even pain in your body. 
I have found that one of the following is likely to cause trouble  for most individuals – Colorants, Preservatives,   monosodium glutamate (MSG) and the “Avoid at all costs” Artificial Sweeteners; Aspartame. You may in fact be following a relatively healthy diet but still suffering from some irritating illness that could be sorted out by removing additives.
The easiest thing to do is stick to natural foods and homemade products. 
MOTTO FOR THE WEEK“I will read labels and avoid harmful additives.”

SPECIAL NOTES:

Additives are sometimes identified by the letter E, which is followed by a number. 
The letter E is the standard identification code in most countries and there are currently 5000 additives in use worldwide. 
GOOD HABIT # 6
Do your best to avoid harmful additives.
Food in it’s natural state is for best for us. If it has been preserved or coloured, has had the flavour enhanced or been irradiated, we are consuming processed food products. 
Raw food is the best diet for physical, mental, and emotional well-being. Read the ingredients listed on the labels of everything you buy. It will cost you nothing and it will preserve your health.
