Hello All!

 

If this petition has reached you, I want you to consider something. What is in the food you are eating. Often times we glance over labels on the foods we eat, and amongst the fancy jargon, don’t realize what is in the products we eat.

Sometimes sadly, when things like “natural flavors” are included you can’t be too sure exactly what is “in the natural flavors”. Without going into a huge deep dive, natural flavors are anything but natural. They are in fact created in labs. They typically consist of chemicals and are harmful to our bodies. The only reason they are put in our food is to make our food addictive, and cut costs. So instead of using vanilla extract or an actual extract from a fruit or something in nature, a product may contain “vanilla natural flavor” and this can significantly cut the costs and put your body at risk for harmful chemicals. 

I made this petition because I am passionate about trying to fight to ban natural flavors. I have a child who I love very much and am constantly trying to find ways to improve the food he and I consume. There is more than enough evidence that they are harmful for our bodies and if they were banned products would have to either use actual sugars, or extracts to create the same foods we already eat and love. This wouldn’t change the flavor and taste of the products you are used to by much, but significantly increase the quality of the product you are buying.

Thanks for your time and consideration.
