Antifreeze in Our Food!

I was shocked to find out that certain food companies have been using antifreeze in their products for things like thickeners. What you say? Yes, that’s correct. Betty Crocker is a huge culprit as well as a few other major companies. Read your ingredients before buying these products. It will be disguised as propylene glycol which is a chemical used as a solvent in antifreeze and also used in those e-cigarettes that have become popular. And get this: the Center for Disease Control & Prevention stated it might cause cardiovascular or neurotoxilogical issues as well as itchiness, redness, and skin irritations BUT it’s safe in low amounts. What is the world coming to when it’s okay to poison us in our food!
