A RAINBOW OF RISK
Updated: Jun 6
Leprechauns guard the gold at the end of a rainbow, or so the popular Irish legend goes.
If you are lucky enough to catch one of these tricksters, they must give you their treasure and grant you three wishes.
Big food companies have used rainbows, gold, luck, and fortune to lure in the consumer (especially children) and make them want to buy "food-like" products that aren't food at all.
"Taste the Rainbow," a popular slogan for Skittles, lures the consumer into indulging in a multi-sensory experience, combining a kaleidoscope of color with various fruity flavors, appealing to kids of all ages!
However, there is more behind these bright colors than meets the eye.
These artificial food dyes and ingredients used in "food-like" products such as Skittles have been linked to causing cancer, tumors, and hyperactivity in children.
When you look at the ingredient list, there is NOT ONE item that is good to put in your body!
☠️ Sugar ☠️ Corn Syrup ☠️ Hydrogenated Palm Kernel Oil ☠️ Modified Corn Starch
☠️ Artificial Colors -Red 40 -Yellow 5 -Yellow 6 -Blue 2 -Blue 1 ☠️ Titanium Dioxide
Titanium Dioxide is a metal used to help define colors. It is used in products such as paints, coatings, adhesives, paper, plastics, fabric, ceramics, floor coverings, roofing materials, cosmetics, toothpaste soap, water treatment agents, pharmaceuticals, food colorants, automotive products, and sunscreen!
Studies have shown titanium dioxide to damage DNA, which may lead to cancer!
Skittles, Starburst, and thousands of other sweet treats marketed to children contain titanium dioxide – an additive European food safety regulators have banned, stating it is no longer safe for human consumption.
Another popular children's cereal is Lucky Charms!
The name suggests you will have luck just by eating this ultra-processed "food-like" product!
Lucky Charms is made through a process called extrusion, which takes the mixture of grain, sugar, and fats and, through extreme pressure and temperature, presses the mixture out tiny holes on the other end, creating their shape.
Extrusion changes the nature of the grains and the protein structures causing them to become foreign and potentially toxic to the human nervous system.
In fact, in a study on rats, those fed extruded cereal died faster than those starved and given only water.
In addition, Lucky Charms contains a whole host of toxic ingredients, not to mention its high sugar content!
☠️ Sugar ☠️ Corn Syrup ☠️ Dextrose ☠️ Modified Corn Starch ☠️ Trisodium Phosphate
☠️ Artificial Colors - Red 40 - Yellow 5 - Yellow 6 - Blue 1
When it comes to getting lucky, the natural world supplies us with a whole host of colorful foods that provide the nutrients we need for healthy brains and bodies.
Red: apples, cherries, blood oranges, tomatoes, strawberries, red cabbage, red peppers, pomegranates
Orange: carrots, sweet potato, papaya, mango, pumpkin, oranges, tangerines, peaches, persimmons
Yellow: Bananas, pineapples, yellow squash, yellow bell peppers
