Are you eating cement?
Have you ever heard of 2-hydroxypropane-1,2,3-tricarboxylic acid? Probably not. Too bad you're eating it every day! This common food additive is found in all sorts of industrial products. It's used to clean circuit boards prior to soldering, and is added to cigarettes. 2-hydroxypropane-1,2,3-tricarboxylic acid is used to make cement and to prevent coagulation in the slaughtering business.
Cement? Anti-coagulation? And it's in your food! I can't even imagine the havoc this TOXIN is wreaking in your body.
It maybe approved by the FDA, but you know we can't trust them since they're in league with Big Ag and Big Pharma.
Now that you're officially scared of this terrible, terrible chemical (and let's be honest, if it's in cement that means it IS cement), let me tell you everything you're eating that contains cement!
Tomato Based Sauces!
People you are eating cement every single day. How can our government allow this to continue? They're poisoning us. It's in everything! As we speak it is raging through your veins, making it so the next time you get a scratch your blood won't clot!
This is cement! It's a chemical which means it's a toxin!
Be afraid. Be very afraid.
P.S. The common name for 2-hydroxypropane-1,2,3-tricarboxylic acid is citric acid.
PPS - Were you scared?
PPPS - I want to say that as a whole foods enthusiast, I am not a fan of preservatives. But as a chemist, I am also not a fan of these wholesale scare tactics about "chemicals" and "toxins."
