I found some info. o this website:
A food labeled "all natural" can contain:
toxic heavy metals
trace amounts of PCBs
high-temperature cooking byproducts
synthetic chemical vitamins
other non-natural substances
According to the FDA – their definition of “natural”…
Natural foods are processed without preservatives or additives, but may have been grown with the use of pesticides or other conventional methods. The
Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulates the term ‘natural’ only as it applies to added color, synthetic substances, and flavors. The term
‘natural’ can include free-range and hormone-free, and it can mean that a product contains no synthetic ingredients or color additives. However,
you should always check the label to be sure of a product’s ingredients.
go here: to see How to read Food Labels:
Organic farming is also regulated by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) according to strict quality standards for growing and
handling. To locate USDA Certified Organic products in the store, look for the USDA seal which ensures the product is 95-100% organic
This worries me so much, How am I to stay healthy and hopefully not have a sickness or develop a sickness sometime in my life if I have to eat all
that $%#^ in my food ? I think I am going to die of some strange ailment or condition because the USDA allows this to happen.
Take care of yourself, all!
