(NaturalNews) The food industry is a tricky business. Major food companies have mastered the art of marketing foods that are not actually healthy as if they were healthy, and many people are none the wiser about these deceptive branding and labeling tactics. But playing the fool does not have to define your experience navigating the grocery store aisles in search of healthy fare for you and your family.

Many 'all natural' products are packed with not so natural ingredients

One popular marketing term you will want to pay close attention to is "all natural." While sometimes indicative of a truly clean product depending on the brand, the term "all natural" is very loosely defined. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) even admits on its official website that the word "natural" is "difficult to define," which is supposedly why the agency has not yet developed an official legal definition for its use.

Because of this, many popular food brands are now tacking the words "all natural" onto products that contain genetically-modified organisms (GMOs), processed sugars and flours, and various other unhealthy ingredients. So scrutinizing the ingredients contained in all food products, including those labeled "all natural," is necessary to help weed out those that have been "health-washed."

Whole grains are still grains, which means they cause inflammation

Many food products today also bear the words "made with whole grains," which implies that they are somehow healthier than products made with refined flours. While this may be true to a degree, many whole grains, including whole grain wheat, are still pro-inflammatory foods that can lead to so-called "wheat belly," which is a buildup of fat around one's midsection.

Individuals looking to stay fit and slim will probably want to avoid eating excess amounts of any type of grain, including whole grains, as both their high carbohydrate content and high glycemic index tend to negatively affect body composition. Whole grain consumption can also damage the cardiovascular system and inhibit the proper absorption of nutrients by the gut.

'Diet' foods destroy your health and make you fat

Another deceptive marketing language centers around the use of terms like "light," "diet," and "zero," which are meant to imply that certain foods are healthier because they contain less fat and sugar. More often than not, products bearing these labels are loaded with artificial sweeteners like aspartame (NutraSweet, Equal) and sucralose (Splenda), which are neurotoxic poisons. Eating "light" and "diet" foods has also been shown to have an opposite effect as far as body composition is concerned - "diet" foods tend to make people fat.

'Freshness' preservatives not so fresh for your cellular system

And what about food preservatives that are added "for freshness?" While using the term "for freshness" to describe the purpose behind the preservative's action may sound beneficial, the action of the preservative on your body produces a much different result. Processed food preservatives like sodium benzoate and sulfur dioxide have been shown in scientific studies to literally suffocate cells by preventing them from getting oxygen, which leads to their eventual death.

The same goes for anti-caking agents like sodium aluminosilicate and emulsifiers like soy lecithin - the vast majority of soy lecithin is GMO, by the way - both of which are associated with health problems. The former is linked to harming cellular mitochondria, damaging vital organs, and disrupting neurological function, while the latter can cause blood cells to "clump" together, which again can block proper oxygen absorption and distribution throughout the body.
