DailyDirt: What's That In Your Food?

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Processed foods are everywhere. They're quick and easy, as well as mighty tasty because they're designed to hit the perfect combination of salt, sugar and fat our bodies crave. Unfortunately, few things are actually perfect if you look closely enough. Common food packaging frequently lists ingredients that sound like a nightmare chemistry exam you haven't studied for, and preservatives aren't all that appetizing even if you can't taste them. Here are a few links on food additives that you may or may not think are scary. If you'd like to read more awesome and interesting stuff, check out this unrelated (but not entirely random!) Techdirt post via StumbleUpon.

    I must have missed where the AC claimed it was harmful to health. He was just saying it's not good. It would be 100% possible to use human remains as a food ingredient without being harmful to your health, but it wouldn't be a good thing anyway.
