Did you know that the US Food and Drug Administration allows 3,000 food additives to be used in the US food supply and only a few of them been tested for safety? There are literally thousands of these ingredients to watch out for in the foods you eat but these five are probably worst of the worst.And no one knows what they do when they are used together. Aspartame – an addictive carcinogenic neuro toxins. It has been linked to almost a hundred different health problems. Aspartame depletes serotonin, and can trigger bipolar or manic depression, mood swings, paranoia, hallucination and suicidal tendencies. Aspartame is a multipotential carcinogen, can trigger male sexual dysfunction and birth defects, and is particularly dangerous for the fetus in the womb.
The amino acids in aspartame literally attack your cells, even crossing the blood-brain barrier to attack your brain cells, creating a toxic cellular overstimulation called excitotoxicity.
Gluten leads to many neurological diseases. When gluten enters the intestinal lining, it then enters the bloodstream and eventually reaches the brain where it causes inflammation. Consequently, inflammation in the brain may develop into a neurological disorder such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, seizures and even schizophrenia.
Aluminum can damage your brain. Research has demonstrated that aluminum can produce toxic, oxidative stress in the brain. Your brain can store a lot of aluminum which can result in MS, chronic fatigue syndromes, epilepsy, ADD, Alzheimer’s, Guilliane-Barre’ syndrome (a common post vaccination injury) and other neurological disorders.
Monosodium glutamate (MSG)
Monosodium glutamate (MSG) Animal studies have found that MSG is toxic to the brain, and researchers believe it causes migraines in people because it dilates blood vessels and impacts nerve cells in the brain.
MSG has been found to contribute to many neurological conditions, such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, Lou Gehrig’s disease, stroke, encephalitis, and brain infections.
A new study published in the Institute of Environmental Health SciencesjournalEnvironmental Health Perspectives has found that fluoride damages brain development and leads to significantly lower IQ levels in humans.
A 2008 Scientific American report stated that “Scientific attitudes toward fluoridation may be starting to shift” as new evidence revealed the link betweenfluoride and disorders affecting, bones, teeth, the thyroid gland, and brain. The study also “Concluded that fluoride can subtly alter endocrine function, especially in the thyroid — the gland that produces hormones regulating growth and metabolism.”
