Dear Fellow ATS'ers:
Not sure if you are aware of this, so I wanted to alert you to Azodicarbonamide in our food. It is in nearly every product imaginable. If you are
lucky, you may find something that doesn't contain this POISONOUS ingredient.
Educate yourself. This is not the only poison .
Why do they allow this ingredient? It is banned in every other country except for the U.S.
Singapore has up to a 15 year imprisonment and a $450,000 fine. How can they get away with putting poison in our food anyway?
Everyone else has to pay for their crimes! But 'they' can get away with it?
This angers me...
Wanted to call your attention to this POISON in our food..
Take care , stay safe....
and consume safely...
