99 Percent of Chemicals in Foods Are Self-Certified by Industry, NOT FDA (by Dr. Berg)
The FDA allows companies to self-certify chemicals in food as safe using a designation called Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS), without undergoing safety studies. This loophole allows companies to avoid restrictions on chemicals in food, and 99% of chemicals in the food supply have not been reviewed for safety. Some chemicals that are allowed in the U.S. are not allowed in Europe. The video discusses six chemicals that are generally considered safe, including nitrates, BHA, BHT, potassium bromide, brominated vegetable oil, and titanium dioxide. These chemicals are linked to various health issues, including cancer, endocrine disruption, and interference with iodine. Parents need to be aware of the presence of these chemicals in the food their children consume, and people with detoxification gene problems should avoid them.
