Simply Health ME E45 - Review of the American Academy of Pediatrics July 2018 Food Additives and Child Health
The recent policy statement from the American Academy of Pediatrics
The system is broken.
Many substances which are illegal in Europe are regularly added to products and food here.
E.g It's not just BPA (Bisphenol A). substances that replaced BPA can be worse.... such as phthalates
BPA is estrogenic and linked to endocrine cancers
More than 10 000 chemicals are allowed to be added to food and food contact materials in the United States, either directly or indirectly,
Over 1000 of these were grandfathered in for use if used before 1958, (1958 Food Additives Amendment to the 1938 Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA)
These things are causing endocrine disruption and other adverse health effects
IT'S ALL ABOUT HORMONES!!!!!
infants and children are more vulnerable to chemical exposures
The statement from the American Academy of Pediatrics does not address other contaminants that inadvertently enter the food and water supply, such as aflatoxins,metals including mercury, pesticide residues such as DDT, but these are also concerning. The paper is focused on food
The things discussed in this paper
Bisphenols (BPA) which are used in the lining of metal cans to prevent corrosion
Phthalates, which are often used in adhesives, lubricants, and plasticizers during the manufacturing process
Perfluoroalkyl Chemicals (PFCs), which are used in greaseproof paper and packaging
Food Dyes- Linked to ADHD
Perchlorate- an antistatic agent used for plastic packaging in contact with dry foods with surfaces that do not contain free fat or oil and also present as a degradation product of bleach used to clean food manufacturing equipment
What can you Do right now?
Additional compounds of concern discussed in the accompanying technical report include artificial food colors, nitrates, and nitrites.
