Carcinogenic children’s “treats”

Manufacturers of all factory treats spend a lot of money on advertising on television, in newspapers and on the Internet. They make toys and clothes with their logo. They pay for his appearance in movies and video games.

Manufacturers of children’s products spend $10 billion a year on advertising. 10 billion a year spent on making sure your kids love extra cute teddy bears or “healthy” drinks that have more sugar than coke.

Marketing to children works extremely well: their minds are still vulnerable. But we urge parents to be vigilant and not indulge their child every time just to calm down and stop whining. Because, as experts say, these delicacies can be the cause of hyperactivity in children, mood swings, allergies and even cancer. In the United States alone, food manufacturers spend about $25 million a year to purchase hormone-disrupting synthetic dyes.

The list of products containing these dyes is almost endless, but here we will mention some of them that are the most dangerous.

Desserts in colorful packages

These sweet tempting morsels are very popular and everyone thinks that since they are meant for children, they are relatively safe.
But, each such piece is full of sugar, corn syrup, fructose, dextrose, and even TBHQ, a petroleum-derived chemical that causes cellular dysfunction in many organs in children.
It has been proven in laboratory conditions that if we force laboratory mice to eat only such desserts, very quickly we will find that they have lost their vision, have an enlarged liver, and started to suffer from seizures. And finally they will die of paralysis.

Sugar is the main culprit of liver problems and the development of diabetes in children. By the way, if you haven’t heard, the incidence of diabetes in children is higher today than it has ever been before and continues to grow rapidly.

Fruit jelly beans

The “fruity” taste of these snacks is given by erythrosine – a product extracted from oil. Before it was even forbidden to use it in cosmetics: it was proven to lead to tumors of the thyroid gland.
If it’s dangerous to the skin, why do you think it’s harmless to the stomach?

Colorful M&M’S dragees

These popular candies contain an extremely small amount of chocolate and a lot of chemicals that can cause the development of malignant tumors in the brain and damage DNA.

Would you still be comfortable buying them for your child?


The artificial dye under the professional name Yellow 6, which is used in these tempting “foods” for our children, is also derived from oil, and in this case serves to imitate the aroma and taste of cheese.

And in these “flavors” there are also methyl benzoate and ethyl methylphenidate.

Teddy Cookies

These cute little “bears” are stuffed with TBHQ, which has been proven to cause stomach cancer in lab rats.
This substance can damage DNA fragments and suppress the child’s respiratory system. It also causes anxiety, restlessness and hyperactivity.


Popcorn is not only one of the most popular products on the planet, but also very harmful. This is especially true for microwave popcorn, which is easy, practical and convenient for parents. This popcorn contains perfluorooctanoic acid, which is also used in Teflon. Studies show that this chemical causes infertility in women. Scientists claim that perfluorooctanoic acid significantly increases the risk of cancers of the internal organs: liver, kidneys, bladder, pancreas and testicles.

Microwave popcorn contains another very dangerous chemical – diacetyl.

Brightly colored candies, lollipops, kisses

The problem comes from the food coloring used. Health advocates have long tried to ban most food dyes because they are linked to hyperactivity in children, allergies, cancer, respiratory diseases. Paints with red, orange and yellow colors are especially dangerous. Some of them – “amaranth” (E123), “citrus red” (E121), “sunset” (E 110), after a persistent struggle of scientists, were banned. But the use of many others was simply limited. Such is, for example, “Ponzo red” (4R) – when the permissible daily dose is exceeded (it’s amazing how it can be calculated), it provokes the development of a whole spectrum of diseases. Red dye 3R causes cancer in laboratory rats. In the United States, its use is restricted but not yet banned. The dye “charming red” causes neurological abnormalities in children, but it is also only of limited use.

Kinder surprise

The fact is that the German organization “FoodWatch”, which is engaged in the study of the safety of various food products, recently tested the brand’s products and came to an alarming conclusion: “children’s” chocolate contains carcinogenic substances!

In other words, parents who buy these toy chocolate eggs for their children risk provoking the development of cancer in them!

The biggest threat to health is the special mineral oil that is added to chocolate to give it the “right” flavor.

Chemists call this hydrocarbonate by the abbreviation MOAH. It is a by-product of the oil refining process.

In addition to Kinder, a dangerous concentration of this chemical is also contained in German candies sold under the brands “Ferrero”, “Lindt” and “Rübezhal”.

FoodWatch highlights: MOAH can cause cancer, and even in small doses it is almost guaranteed to damage the human genome.

In addition, the organization ensures that the manufacturers of these foods regularly pay corrupt “scientists” and journalists to publish the “correct” information about the potential dangers of these “chocolate delights”.

“Manufacturers of these desserts are shocking with their carelessness regarding the health of consumers,” says John Hegg, one of the authors of a study conducted by “FoodWadtch.” “Instead of removing dangerous candies from store shelves, they are brainwashing the public with meaningless statements and false articles in the press.”

According to data from the European Food Safety Agency (EFSA), MOAH is a carcinogenic and mutagenic substance.

And in “Ferrero”, instead of changing the composition of their products, they assure that traces of mineral oil “exist everywhere in the environment.”

Manufacturers of various products, including for children, continue to use artificial colors that expose our children to serious health risks. Only if we educate them to love fruits and vegetables and inform them about how colorful and bright “children’s” treats are poisoning them, we will help them grow up healthy and happy.
