Canada is investigating whether to approve a cancer-fighting additive’s use in junk food, but Health Canada wants consumers to weigh in on the idea first.
At first this idea didn’t sit well with me, but after just a moment of perspective I quickly realized there are chemical additives in most processed foods we eat. Of course to be on the safe side, more testing needs to be done. No one likes the idea of adding “stuff” to the food we eat, but we accepted that long ago. One might ask, “if we can add things that prevent illness (without causing a new one) and help us to be healthier, is there really any harm”? Honestly, I am against any chemical additives to our food, just as I am against vaccines. And I don’t see how two wrongs make a right.
