Canned What? (COOL Lent: 2008)

5 Minutes of Caring: Canned What?

In a nutrition course I took in the early 90s I remember the professor saying something to the effect of “if you can’t pronounce it, don’t eat it.” Her comment was similar to what the CoolPeople are saying in the above article – take a look at the ingredients before you decide to buy something. All the packaging, branding and advertising in the world can’t hide the fact that preservatives, colorings and flavor additives are chemical substitutes for what God created naturally.

I’m starting to see a lot more press on the link between chemical additives and health. A lot of it is still under research but in some ways it makes sense that processing foreign substances causes added stress to our bodies.
