The Big Food Discrepancy: Why Are American Foods Routinely More Toxic Than European Versions?
Feb 16, 2015
The French fries McDonald’s sells in the US are made with over a dozen different additives. The fries sold in the UK are just potatoes fried in sunflower or grapeseed oil.
If McDonald’s can make a tasty French fry without preservatives, antifoaming agents, color stabilizers, TBHQ, and added flavorings for its British restaurants, why do they refuse to make them in the US?
More than 3,000 food additives are used in US food production, including infant foods and foods targeted to young children; many of which are banned in other countries due to health risks.
