I subscribe to this newsletter published by Dr. Mercola, an alternative medicine specialist. The articles in the newsletter are very well written and informative, revealing a lot of highly relevant information about diet and health issues. I’d like to share with you this article (please click on link) about how flavor additives, which consist of thousands of different chemicals, are added to countless processed foods in the United States without passing through the FDA for approval and are vetted only by the flavor manufacturers trade group, known as FEMA (Flavor and Extract Manufacturers Association). This is a little known issue, and if you care about healthy living and transparency in food regulations, you will be interested in reading this article.
Please let me know what you think!
