So I just checked my email, and both my husband and one of my best friends had sent me the same article this morning. Coincidence? Or a wake-up call? Help me decide…

The article talks about some of the additives in our foods and why we should be worried about them.
The writer then gives examples of specific products that have the additives in them.
Some of the examples that I, personally, consume (at least one a semi-regular basis) include:
- La Choy soy sauce
- Orbit gum
- Skinny Cow Ice Cream sandwiches (I LOVE these things!)
- Nature’s Own bread
Here’s my thing. If we worry about every possible thing that could be linked to cancer or some other disease, we would drive ourselves crazy. Unless you’re living in a bubble, you are going to be susceptible to some possible dangers.
But on the flip side of the coin, of course, I want to keep myself (and my family) healthy and safe. So if avoiding certain foods are going to keep me healthy, then (logically-speaking) I would want to avoid them. But how cautious is too cautious?
I would love to hear some other thoughts and opinions on this topic.
