They dump this additive into animal feed AND they dump it into YOUR food too.
It’s as sure a sign as any that the food industry basically thinks of us as just another type of cattle for them to plump up.
And now new research shows it’s working about as well as you’d expect.
It’s turning us all into cows, making us fatter than ever at an alarming speed.
Heck, I wouldn’t be surprised if we all had the urge to start moooooooing soon.
Well, today it’s time to bust your way off of the ranch. Because I’ve got the inside scoop on WHAT this junk is and HOW you can avoid it.
They’ll hate it, of course. Because it means you won’t buy paying for Big Food’s slaughterhouse chow anymore.
But your body will love it… because you’ll get healthy in a hurry.
Hormone-wrecking additive hidden in your food
The additive is called propionate. It’s a short-chain fatty acid that on the one hand, is natural.
But there’s nothing natural about HOW it’s being used.
It’s not your imagination. Bread really DOES last much longer these days, thanks to this additive and other chemical enhancements.
Propionate is concentrated and pumped into both animal feed and processed foods – especially baked goods – to prevent mold.
And as a result shelf life, along with Big Food’s profits, have skyrocketed.
But inside the body, it’s silently increasing something else.
When researchers dumped propionate into mouse chow, the additive triggered disturbing hormone disruptions in the mice, which over time led to…
- weight gain
- insulin resistance
That’s mice. Then they did an experiment in humans too.
When the researchers gave this additive or a placebo to volunteers, they found that the folks who ate the additive had metabolic disruptions too.
Their hormones went haywire in a very similar way to what was seen in the mice.
Drop processed foods to reduce your diabetes risk
You see where this is going, right?
Like the cattle I mentioned earlier, when you eat enough propionate you get nice and plump too. And the insults don’t end there, either.
The carbs in the baked goods you eat naturally send your blood sugar soaring. But the insulin resistance triggered by the additive makes those spikes harder to control.
In other words, it’s the perfect storm for creating a case of type-2 diabetes!
This isn’t the ONLY chemical you need to avoid in processed foods, of course. In fact, it’s probably far from the WORST additive in the stuff.
The other garbage in processed foods has been linked to everything from cancer to dementia, not to mention the same problems found in the new study, including obesity and diabetes.
So your best bet is to ditch all of it.
Does anyone REALLY need a loaf of bread that lasts two weeks?
Let’s face it, you probably don’t need bread at all, since it’s an empty carb. But you DEFINITELY don’t need it laced with propionate, high-fructose corn syrup, dyes, flavoring agents, and all those other additives.
The easy solution is to call it quits when it comes to processed foods… especially those baked goods.
Now trust me, I get it. Saying it and doing it are two different things. But if the idea of sacrificing all that convenience makes your hands shake, do yourself a favor and try it for 48 hours. That’s it.
See how you manage with avoiding processed foods for two days. I bet you’ll find it’s a lot easier than you expected. And once you see how painless it is, and how much better you start to feel, I promise you’ll never want to go back to eating that additive laced food again.
