Petition Tag - food additives
There has been a steady rise in ADHD, aspergers and autism over the years. Children diagnosed with learning and behavioural issues are on the increase Australia wide.
Foods recommended and approved by Australian Government " Healthy Canteens" for school children's consumption are loaded with artificial colours, preservatives, flavour enhancers, MSG and known carcinogens. These chemically made ingredients are known to cause a long list of reactions and health concerns such as; asthma, learning and behavioural issues, headache, hyperactivity, skin inflammation, stomach upset, cancer, numbness to limbs, hay fever, migraine, gastric irritation and much more.
It is time to STOP allowing these foods into school canteens and START providing children with foods that fuel their bodies for a day of education and play.
Our children's health and wellbeing is so much more important than profit and convenience. It is time for change... because our children are worth it!
MSG & other flavor enhancing food additives not only confuse our bodies natural ability to recognize when it is satiated but also induce cravings, which can lead to eating disorders & binge behavior.
The lack of valuable nutrients in such food leaves the body devoid of the vitamins & minerals it needs to function properly & quite simply leaves it wanting more..... and more.... and more.
MSG has been linked to retinal degeneration & is believed to cause permanent damage to the neural pathways within our brain -- leading to behavior disorders, learning disabilities, reproductive disorders, obesity, and more.
British medical journal Lancet has linked common food additives and colorings to hyperactivity, even in kids who have not been diagnosed with ADD or ADHD. The study found that food additives could lead to more inattention, impulsivity and hyperactivity through middle childhood, and advised parents to monitor the activity of children when they are eating more additives to see if those products should be eliminated from their diet.
Behavioral & health disorders are directly related to our daily diet. Fortunately, we possess the knowledge of what our bodies require to sustain a healthy existence.... let's make it a standard!
