Here is the Ditty:
MSG -Monosodium Glutamate
(MSG) is a flavor enhancer often added to restaurant foods, canned vegetables, soups, deli meats and other foods.
MSG has been shown to cause lesions on the brain especially in children. These lesions cause cognitive, endocrinological and emotional abnormalities. In children, excess Glutamate affects the growth cones on neurons.
GMO – Genetically Modified Organism
A genetically modified organism is any organism whose genetic material has been altered using genetic engineering techniques.
Why do people avoid GMOs?
GMOs have certain chemicals in them that can potentially be harmful to human health. With so many people focused on purchasing healthy food, selling food that could be dangerous to consumers is not good. Not only do GMOs impact humans, but they also have detrimental effects on various animals.
GMOs - are often used to help foods survive longer on shelves when being sold at supermarkets. They can also be used to keep pests away from crops as they grow. However, many people are against having GMOs in their food, and not for bad reasons.
Carrageenan – is a family of natural linear sulfated polysaccharides that are extracted from red edible seaweeds. Carrageenans are widely used in the food industry, for their gelling, thickening, and stabilizing properties.
Dangers and side effects of carrageenan are:
irritable bowel syndrome.
This is just the ditty on three ingredients to watch out for on your labels. Reading is knowledge! Preserve your gut and stay away from the dirty ditty!
Speaking of the dirty ditty – Here are the top Dirty Dozen Foods:

Bell & hot Peppers.
Only Buy “Organic” of these Vegetables and Fruits!
NOTE: A small amount of sweet corn, papaya and summer squash sold in the United States is produced from genetically modified seeds. Buy organic varieties of these crops if you want to avoid genetically modified produce.
