Ban BHA& BHT food preservatives

Messages Sent So Far
These two closely related chemicals are added to oil-containing foods to prevent oxidation and retard rancidity. The International Agency for Research on Cancer, part of the World Health Organization, consider BHA to be possibly carcinogenic to humans, and the State of California has listed it as a carcinogen. Some studies show the same cancer causing possibilities for BHT.

BHT and BHA are totally unnecessary. To avoid them read the label. Because of the possibility that BHT and BHA might cause cancer, both should be phased out of our food supply.

Cancer is rampant throughout this nation and allowing chemicals to be in our food that are capable of causing cancers is a big reason why. Even if there is a slight doubt as to whether a chemical can cause cancer or not, we should always ere on the side of caution and just not use it (or let it be used). Companies have shown time and time again that they value money over the health of others. We need to stand against this for not only ourselves but our children and families!

My son used different cereals organic and non organic. The non organic, had a little flame that held for a few seconds. The organic, no flame except Cascadian farm, but they use some Vitamin E oil. Pretty scary. Remove that crap from our food. Thank you!
