This article by “Food Babe” from 100daysofrealfood.com is not to be missed! She literally shows the ingredients in many products such as Ritz crackers in the US versus the same product in the UK. The crackers in the UK have real ingredients and our crackers have “crap”– crap that is often banned in other countries!
I am equally outraged. I am sure you will be too. Thank you Gina for sharing.
As there are endless topics to cover, I am grateful for the excellent work of others!! Please feel free to send me anything “Do Your Homework” noteworthy!!

“It is appalling to witness the examples I am about to share with you. The U.S. food corporations are unnecessarily feeding us chemicals – while leaving out almost all questionable ingredients in our friends’ products overseas. The point is the food industry has already formulated safer, better products, but they are voluntarily only selling inferior versions of these products here in America. The evidence of this runs the gamut from fast food places to boxed cake mix to cereal to candy and even oatmeal – you can’t escape it.”
