The Dangers of Sodium Benzoate

Peach Jam

It seems like when reading labels almost everything contains sodium benzoate.  I knew it was a preservative, mostly used as a mold inhibitor, but I guess I just thought it was a type of salt and not to dangerous.  Silly me!  After researching this additive more closely, I realized it is a carcinogen and can actually block nutrients and oxygen from getting to your cells.  When that happens, it damages DNA’s mitochondria. This causes the cells to malfunction and causes degenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease.  When benzoate is mixed with anything that contains Vitamin C or E, it becomes Benzene, which causes cancer, dizziness, headaches, and increased heart rate as well as ADHD and ADD symptoms in otherwise healthy children.  You can be sure that I will be looking even more closely at food labels and avoiding anything with sodium benzoate.  Find out more by clicking on the link below…
