15 Foods You had no idea were Killing You

1-ts

Back in the old days, it was a pretty safe bet that whatever food you went out to buy wasn’t going to kill you. The ways we grew food and cultivated it were completely different than it is today.

These changes have been made to make sure that we have enough food to go around. But it also leads to new dangers in your diet, as foods that were ok to eat in yesteryear may do some different things within you. As a result, we have many subtle killers located right in your nearest grocery store.

1. Microwave Popcorn

Everybody loves popcorn, especially that microwaveable kind you can make in the comfort of your own home. These salty treats go great with any movie or drink you want to settle up with.

What you didn’t realize is that microwave popcorn contains plenty of chemicals which do nothing but cause your body harm.

For one, the bag itself that the popcorn comes in is lined with a chemical called perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA). This chemical is also found in Teflon, and after being heated, this toxic chemical is known to cause infertility and cancer in lab animals.

Not only that, but popcorn itself is made from GMO corn kernels. Even though the boxes and bags do not say that you are eating GMO corn, you still are as the government has passed laws saying that they do not have to advertise the fact they aren’t using organic kernels.
