Unbeknownst to most Americans, thousands of the food items on our store shelves contain ingredients that are made using nanotechnology.
Specifically, they are made through a process that converts things like silver, copper, gold, aluminum, silicon, carbon, and different metal oxides into tiny, atom-sized particles that are one-billionth of a meter in size.
They do this because over the past 30 years or so, scientists discovered that adding these tiny components can make our food more colorful, brighter, creamier, and crunchier, and they were even able to keep it fresher for longer.
However, according to more and more consumer protection groups as well as health experts, there appears to be a catch: while these nanoparticles can provide a myriad of benefits, they might come at a price -- and that price is our health, which might be getting compromised without our even knowing it.
While countries like Canada, France, and the E.U. bloc are banning these nanotech foods, here in America, the FDA not only allows them, but companies are not even required to list these nanoparticles on their ingredient labels, meaning that you don’t even know you’re ingesting them.
