(NaturalNews) Did you know that wild rice isn't really rice? It's actually a type of grass seed. Did you know that many bottled, flavored "tea" beverages contain no tea at all? Or that soy protein is made using a highly explosive chemical solvent that can be used to manufacture bombs? These and hundreds of other amazing food facts are revealed in the new "Amazing Food Fact Machine" just launched by Natural News.
The Amazing Food Fact Machine is available now at:www.NaturalNews.com/AmazingFoodFactMachine.a...
There, users can click the "Generate a new fact" button to see new facts appear, along with wise-cracking comments from a cartoon character (the "office guy") sitting on a giant apple.
"It's surprising how little people really know about the food they eat," explained Mike Adams, the editor of Natural News. "In creating the Amazing Food Fact Machine, we wanted to give both children and adults a fun, educational way to learn some astonishing things about where food comes from, how it's made and what's missing from it by the time it gets to your dinner table."
The Amazing Food Fact Machine is kid-friendly but parental guidance is recommended to help kids understand the astonishing facts it reveals. Most of these facts are never taught to children in television advertising, corporate-run media news stories or even in public schools. "There is a deliberate dumbing-down of consumers when it comes to what's in their food," explains Adams, "and the food corporations that profit from ignorance want to keep it that way."
