New Food Ingredient Will Genetically Modify Your Tongue!

Unfortunately, these are sad times. A new, "secretive" chemical is being added to processed foods under the label "artificial flavors" that will genentically modify the tongue...all in the name of "good health."

According to Dr. Joseph Mercola: "Processed foods, by their very nature, do not taste good unless they have loads of artificial colors and flavoring agents, salt, sugar and often MSG added to doctor up the flavors.

"In fact, most processed foods would taste incredibly bitter if they weren't doctored up because of things like their extremely hot cooking processes and added caffeine (in soft drinks). So what do food companies like Nestle, Kraft, Cadbury Schweppes, Campbell Soup, and Coca-Cola do?

"They partner with and hire Senomyx, a biotech company that can skillfully manipulate your taste buds with synthetic chemicals. The company has already developed several chemicals that, although they contain no flavor of their own, activate or block receptors in your mouth that control taste. The chemicals can mimic or enhance savory, sweet and salty tastes, and are intended to reduce the use of sugar, salt and monosodium glutamate (MSG) in processed foods."
