It can be hard to become savvy about all the different chemicals in processed food that can be harmful. Here are the top four to watch out for when reading a product label:

1) High Fructose Corn Syrup (HCFS): If you are avoiding GMOs you must avoid HFCS. Corn is the leading source of GMOs in the US. Also, HFCS is highly processed and can cause a myriad of health issues from obesity to heart disease.

2) Artificial sweeteners: If a food is described with words such as refined, diet, sugar-free, or light it most likely contains an artificial sweetener to lower the calorie count. These sweeteners, especially aspartame, have been linked to memory loss, weight gain (ironically) and even cancer. Artificial sweeteners can be found in many foods and drinks including cereals, candy, yogurt, dressings and canned veggies.

3) Monosodium Glutamate: MSG is an amino acid used to flavor a variety of foods. You can find it in chips, frozen foods, and even restaurant foods. MSG overexcites the cells in your body to the point of damage or death. Studies show that consuming it regularly can cause depression. disorientation, eye damage, fatigue, and headaches. Look for it under the name MSG or E621; it can be found in Chinese food, snacks, chips, canned soup and seasonings.

4) Food Dyes: Red#40 Red dye #3 and E124, Blue #1 and #2, Yellow #6 (E110) and Yellow Tartrazine (E102) are all highly toxic and most of them are already banned in many countries. These dyes have been linked to kidney and adrenal gland tumors, thyroid cancer, chromosomal damage, and brain nerve transmission. Many parents with children who have ADD/ADHD and other behavioral issues have reported an improvement in academics and behavior when these foods are removed from their diet.
