Ever cared to take notice what’s listed on the foods you eat?

In a world where profit is more important than consumer’s health and well being, it’s important that individuals make smarter decisions by being informed. We need to educate ourselves about the harmful ingredients in food.

Below are list of harmful ingredients you should avoid.

Monosodium glutamate (AKA MSG):

Where is it found? It is a flavor enhancer which is added to chips, ramen seasoning, prepackaged foods, and many foods you get at a restaurant.
