These wonderful little berries are not only packed full of antioxidants, but they taste great! Whatever you decide to eat them with, they have the ability to make a meal that much better. They are great for your health and delicious! So what is the downside? Nothing. Unless of course, the foods that claim to be loaded with blueberries, do not actually contain blueberries. A closer look at the ingredient list could very well reveal that what you thought were real blueberries are in fact corn cereal, high-fructose corn syrup, refined sugar, hydrogenated oils, modified food starch, food colouring and artificial flavouring, masquerading as blueberries.

Award-winning investigative journalist Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, exposes the deceptive chemical ingredients and dishonest marketing of “blueberry” products from big-name food and cereal companies.

Do you read the labels? Start reading the nutrition facts; you will be shocked at what you have been putting into your body.

Here is the basic label:

You will quickly see the differences between packaged processed foods and foods close to their natural state. If foods grow on a tree or come out of the ground, then eat them. These types of food are more nutrient dense, therefore helping you to feel full with fewer calories.

The ingredient list is just as important to read! Remember ingredients are listed in order of quantity; the first ingredient represents the highest quantity and so on. If you want to be in control of your weight, you must become familiar with food labels.

Craziest Food Creations 2010

“Even the most well-established restaurant chains can’t rest on their laurels, serving the same old standbys that we’ve loved since we were kids. They have to keep us interested and attracted with shiny new bells and whistles. And since no one has invented, say, a new kind of potato, they’ve got to go with the next best thing: gimmicky entrees with terrifyingly complicated ingredient lists and rapidly expanding serving sizes. It wasn’t enough that pizza makers started putting cheese inside the crust! KFC saw that and ramped up its own destructive powers, by making a sandwich in which the bread is replaced by slabs of fried chicken. Then a few major league ballparks started serving their burgers on doughnuts instead of buns. What’s next: fried Fluffernutter franks?

Almost. Take a look at what’s being whipped up in the labs of the mad fast-food scientists, and be afraid—be very afraid!”
