*Soft Drinks Contaminated by Benzene
cheeseburgers and French fries drip with weight gain, increased
cholesterol levels, and
higher blood pressure. But what if further research findings made
these foods look safe?
Cars release benzene with their fumes. Above gas stations benzene
invisibly lingers in a thick,
intractable haze. Factories release benzene in their production of
some plastics, chemicals,
dyes, and detergents. A pollutant and a toxin, it is not surprising
that benzene causes cancer.
The air of such work establishments has reportedly infected
employees. With such characteristics,
benzene is definitely not a substance that one would expect to find
in a grocery aisle. So, how
did it get there?
There is no way to ensure that soft drinks remain benzene-free. But
what if someone only drinks
those that he/she purchases? What if people only store beverages in
cool and shaded areas? It
does not matter. No one can be sure of conditions in every storage
warehouse or every transported
shipment. Once created, benzene permanently remains. Even the most
impeccable treatment and care
cannot erase existing damage.
No longer just unhealthy, some foods may actually contain toxic
elements. People can maintain
healthy diets with foods low in fat, sugar and salt and high in
fiber. Fruits, vegetables, whole
grains, and lean meat are some excellent examples. Foods without artificial sugars, dyes, and
preservatives lower chances of unwanted chemicals. However, while
healthy and natural foods prove
best, people are not always given a choice to decide. The FDA only
recently confirmed that
benzene still appeared in some soft drinks. Could harmful substances
be contaminating other
foods? How can a person defend him/herself from unknown threats?
Unfortunately, safeguarding the body from other unknown chemical toxins is not so easy. Apparently, everything in food is not always edible. Nevertheless, an individualized diet plan under the guidance of a trained professional can easily ensure health and prevent problems. Wholesome and natural foods and discount vitamins greatly prepare for the unknown.
