TOXIC food preservative in many popular foods cause DNA damage and cancer

food-preservative(NaturalHealth365) Did you know that a substance used in paint stripper, rubber cement and permanent spot remover is being used as a preservative in many popular foods (and beverages) for decades?!

The culprit is called, sodium benzoate and you may have seen it while glancing at a food label.  Sadly, too many people dismiss it as one of those chemical preservatives ‘necessary’ to process packaged food.  But, there’s an ugly truth that the food industry is hiding from you about this preservative.

Wicked food preservative deprives cells of oxygen and causes DNA damage

Most people never learn that sodium benzoate is a leading cause of cancer.  In fact, it was even banned by the rubber production industry due to high incidents of workers who handled it developing leukemia.

When sodium benzoate is mixed with sodium hydroxide, it becomes active and develops solvent qualities that are highly destructive to cellular functioning.

While Europe is clamoring to have this toxic chemical banned entirely, in the U.S., it’s a different story. The controlled lamestream media never reports about it.

On top of that, many doctors and researchers are afraid to conduct studies or report their findings due to the increase in threats and “mysterious deaths” of cancer researchers and holistic doctors.

The danger of sodium benzoate to humans is that it deprives the cells of oxygen, compromises the immune system and can lead to the development of blood cancer. It’s the cheapest mold inhibitor available, but it leaches essential nutrients in the body – causing and exacerbating neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.

Ingesting sodium benzoate triggers uncontrolled cell division

In food items, sodium benzoate also reacts with vitamins C and E to form benzene. This is when leukemia is triggered due to cellular mitochondria being deprived of oxygen.

Since the mitochondria is the cells’ power station, programmed cell death results. Cells are then unable to battle disease and infection – including cancer, which is the uncontrolled division and mutation of cells. Sodium benzoate is also destructive at the DNA level.

In short, while sodium benzoate actually does extend the shelf life of food and beverages, with regular consumption, it can shorten the lives of those who consume it. While listed as a ‘preservative,’ clearly this chemical (and other cancer-causing food additives) have no place in ANY food item. It should not be handled or included in non-food products, either.

And, just for the record, foods that contain sodium benzoate include: salad dressings, soy sauce, vinegar, jams and jellies, fruit juices, salsas, dips, sodas and shredded cheese. It is also an ingredient in toothpaste, cough syrup, mouthwash and many cosmetic products.

Favoring unprocessed, natural, organic foods free of preservatives will reduce your cancer risk

Believe it or not, sodium benzoate is limited to 5 ppb in drinking water (that’s 5 parts per billion) – and yet, food and beverage manufacturers are exempt from this regulation. Some sodas have as much as 100 ppb of benzene. (Can you believe it?!)

The presence of such a harmful chemical in so many foods and beverages easily explains why nearly one in two people are expected to be diagnosed with some form of cancer in their lifettime.  As is so often the case, avoiding processed, non-organic foods in favor of natural, organic choices is the most effective path to minimizing your cancer risk.

Don’t wait, take action today.  Because life is worth living!
