..and other complicatedly named chemicals found in foods
For the past week, I’ve been using the UKFoodguide website to find out what exactly the E numbers and oddly named chemicals found in the products I have been eating are.
Most things seem harmless preservatives, colourings and preservatives. But one thing I have found, is that “Monosodium Glutamate” (or E621) which is found in my beloved Hula Hoops, can play a part in the development of Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and Huntingdon’s!
Now, I’m not naive enough to think that eating the odd packet of Hula Hoops is going to lead to later life diseases, but at the rapid rate that I devour these tasty morsels, I do fear for my health.
Could 3/4 (maybe more depending on my mood) packets a day of brain haemorrhaging snacks lead to a slow, painful death for me?
On second thoughts, maybe I should be more worried about the dangerous levels of monoxides in the sweet sweet cigarettes that I smoke 10+ of a day?
