Most children are ingesting estrogen without realizing it from everyday snacks. The top most cancer-causing snack according to scientists is Pop Tarts. The first flavor of Pop Tarts that was introduced was the Strawberry flavored Frosted Pop Tart. It was introduced in 1964. It has corn syrup, high fructose corn syrup, dextrose, and sugar within the first 6 ingredients. These examples are all forms of harmful sugar, all of which have been linked to sugar addiction, diabetes and liver problems in children. Pop Tarts also include TBHQ, a petroleum-based product that causes cellular dysfunction. In laboratory animals, it’s been linked to tumors, loss of vision, liver enlargement, convulsions, and paralysis. Paralysis is the loss of the ability to move (and sometimes to feel anything) in part or most of the body, typically as a result of illness, poison, or injury. Another snack food that is known for potentially causing cancer is Cheetos. The artificial coloring in this snack is made from Yellow 6, which is obtained from petroleum, as is the cheese flavoring, which includes methyl benzoate and ethyl methylphenidate. The last snack that is cancer-causing is M&M’s. They contain Blue 1, which can trigger the development of malignant tumors, Blue 2, which can increase hyperactivity and has been linked to brain tumors, Red 40 which can damage DNA, and Yellow 5 and 6 which have been linked to cancer. All in all, many of the ingredients in children’s food are very dangerous.
