Unhealthy Chemicals Found in Common Foods
Would you order a cocktail of gasoline with a shot of poisonous bromine? Perhaps some petroleum jelly on your breakfast cereal?

Of course you wouldn’t! And yet every day you consume the same compound that powers your car.

Food coloring made from petroleum is found in bottles of your favorite sodas along with a chemical implicated in thyroid disease.

Some American classic cereals are preserved by a carcinogenic petroleum derivative that has long been banned in England.

Special guests, Mira Calton and Jayson Calton, share which foods contain these toxins and the havoc they wreak on your health.
