The food additive Propionic Acid (PPA), a commonly used preservative in processed foods has been linked in new scientific research to harming the fetal brain and possibly leading to autism.
According to the results of a new scientific study, micro-plastics are pervasive in your food and drink and the average American consumes more than 70,000 particles of “microplastics” every year — and that’s likely an underestimation, say the scientists heading up the research.
Yet another study has just been published that has as its premise, “If we could just get the idiot public to understand science, they would change their negative attitudes about GMO food”.

Beyond Meat products is a highly processed food and as such includes food additives that may be problematic for some consumers.

Of special interest is the high level of salts present in this highly processed food product.
A new study on the commonly used food additive, Propionate (frequently listed on food ingredients labels as ‘calcium propionate’) triggered an increased resistance to insulin in study participants; chronic insulin resistance is known to help contribute to type 2 diabetes and other metabolic disorders like obesity.
