As a broadcasting radio station, you are in a pretty powerful position. Your words can influence people to do a great many things or inspire them to live happier and better lives. You can also warn them about various dangers out there in the world such as unhealthy food products, dangerous roads and so much more. But one of the best things you can do right now is to warn people about some of the hidden hazards in food sources that are supposed to be healthy and that are sold at incredibly expensive rates in order to improve the lives of people.
Here are just a few of the many dangerous health products you should be talking about on air.
Sucralose is an artificial sweetener that is commonly used on the market today. These sweeteners are designed to sweeten food products and beverages without the many disadvantages of sugar. Sucralose is mostly used by diabetics and those who are trying to lose weight by avoiding sugar. But while you are using this product in order to stay healthier, you are actually making yourself very sick. Sucralose dangers are only now becoming public and many of the risks and side effects in this product is exactly the same as the risk of using sugar only with even more negative symptoms.
You are probably switching your normal soda with fruit juice in order to lose some weight and stay healthy. But most fruit juices are almost just as bad as any other soda. This is because a single glass of fruit juice such as orange juice contains the same nutritional value and sugar as four to five oranges. Studies also found that juices contain almost just as much fructose concentration as soda and this juice type affects the liver negatively because this is where fructose is converted into fat.
Plenty of people are switching over to popcorn because it supposedly contains fewer chemicals and fattening ingredients than chips. And yes, popcorn you pop on the stove from corn is a lot healthier but you should be careful not to consume too much microwave popcorn. The bags contain nonstick chemicals that are linked to cancer and that entire butter flavoring isn’t healthy for your lungs and doesn’t help much with weight management at all.
Margarine was created to be a healthier alternative to butter but sadly, the opposite of this delicious spread is actually true. The high quantities of Trans fats in margarine results in thousands of fatal heart attacks every year. If you do use margarine then do your homework so you can find a brand that is actually healthy.
Do you love shrimp? One of the reasons you probably love it so much is because you believe that it is not fattening and contains lots of omega 3 which is healthy for your mind. But this food source is actually pretty unhealthy. Store bought shrimps contain lots of food colorants in order to maintain their colour. Those from farm pond waters are treated with a neurotoxin that has been linked to the increase in ADHD and shrimp contains rotenone which is linked to Parkinson’s Disease.
