(NaturalNews) The "dynamic duo" BHA and BHT, both used to preserve products and fight fungus, have both been linked to allergic reactions, hyperactivity, rashes, asthma, and other health problems. In studies BHT has caused various disorders in animals, such as reduced body weight, increased blood cholesterol levels, and birth defects.

America is consuming mass amounts of chemicals put in foods and drinks. Both BHA and BHT are carcinogens that are prominent in potato-chips, cookies, cakes, carbonated drinks, chewing gum, shortening, lard, vegetable oils, margarine, cheese spreads, ice cream, dry cereals, cosmetics, and medical drugs.

If you see the phrases, "as a preservative" or "for added freshness," you can be sure it's for your own good, right? Wrong. In the United States of America, carcinogens like BHA & BHT (butylated hydroxyanisole and butylated hydroxytoluene) are widely used to preserve freshness, keep foods from going rancid, and prolong product shelf life, all while trading in consumer health and wellness for wider profit margins .

The FDA is just like the huge corporations that do not care about American health, so don't be surprised to find out that BHA and BHT are synthetically manufactured, petroleum-based and fat-soluble. How many products in your pantry, refrigerator and cosmetic cabinet have these "preservatives?" Maybe you should go take a count.

Not to be confused with antioxidants that boost immunity, BHA & BHT are food criminals wearing friendly masks, but nutritionally educated consumers are waking up to the new era, where healthy buzz words and phrases like natural flavors, all natural, antioxidant, as a preservative, and for added freshness are stamped on just about anything, with no regulations for such chemical agents posing as food.

BHT is banned in England because research shows it reacts with other ingested substances to cause the formation of carcinogens. BHA is listed as a carcinogen by the state of California because it causes cancer in humans. BHA has been banned in Japan because studies found it causes cancerous tumors in rats stomachs. Both BHA and BHT are toxic to the liver and kidneys. Remember, humans are animals too. Human lymph nodes absorb these toxins, and that's why breast cancer numbers have gone through the roof.

Looking for alternatives? Don't trust anything the FDA approves. Stick with high quality vegetable oil, like cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil, and buy only fresh fruits and vegetables that do not need additives.
