According the Daily Mail, Americas Processed Foods Exposed, some popular snack foods, frozen meals, and even salad kits can contain up to 120 ingredients, many of which are additives. What does the bible say about eating this stuff?
Dangerous Flavor Enhancers
Excessive consumption of ultra-processed foods has been associated with various health risks, including an increased risk of early death, dementia, heart disease, and breast cancer. These processed foods often contain additives like dyes, preservatives, and flavor enhancers, which may have negative effects on health.
Americas Processed Foods: Banned Outside The USA?
It is worth noting that some additives used in the United States, such as Red #40 and certain Yellow #5 dyes, have been banned in the UK due to their potential association with carcinogenic compounds. While there may be ongoing debates about the safety and regulation of additives, it is generally advised to limit consumption of highly processed foods and opt for whole, minimally processed options with fewer ingredients.
Solution: Registered Dietitians
Registered dietitians recommend selecting foods with shorter ingredient lists and those containing recognizable and easy-to-pronounce ingredients. By choosing foods with fewer additives, excessive sodium, sugar, refined carbohydrates, and unhealthy fats, individuals can make healthier choices and promote their overall well-being.
As the body of Christ, we must be careful what we put in our temples as scripture warns, “So if anyone destroys God’s temple, God will destroy him. For God’s temple is holy, and you yourselves are that temple.”
Could this be the reason so many saints of God have passed before their time? They destroyed the temple of God by drinking and eating food that was literally poising their bodies? Eventually over time as you quench the temple of God’s Ruach Hakodesh, by eating processed foods, you will develop sicknesses that wont be healed. Sometimes God will give you the grace to endure it, then other times he will allow it to kill you because of your disobediance.
