    Banned foodstuffs

    My daughter in America has told me several times in conversation the food in the US lasts longer due to preservatives, bread and milk she has pointedly told me last for weeks and weeks.

    So this article should be very worrying for you American members.

    Wow...

    I'm reading a lot of labels at the moment, because lactose intolerance is suspected so no products with lactose for me.. Anyway it surprised me how much crap is in our food!

    Although I bet it wouldn't mention on the box: Yummy chicken wings with extra arsenic !

    That is a fairly old article, actually.
    I've seen none of that stuff in foods in our pantry for quite some time. The battle over food coloring, of course still goes on.

    Yeah, I get a kick out of my niece who is always talking about her good eating habits and natural diet, while she smokes three packs a day.

    I remember when they brought in 'super soft' breads. Very popular a the time but when it was exposed how unhealthy they were people have begun going back to the old kitchen breads.
    You know how to make bread last longer ? freeze it.

    If my bread doesn't have mold on it within 3-4 days, then I do not trust it!
    I do buy bread in bulk but I freeze it

    My dad cut an apple the other week, and left it on the side to go brown, just to see what would happen.. days went past... it didn't even change colour, not a bit! That's not normal now is it..
