Walnuts

I bought walnuts, knowing how healthy they are…

They are high in Omega 3’s, good for your heart, skin, hair, brain and even helpful in preventing cancer. So it astonished me when I turned the package over only to find…

BHT!!!!!!

“BHT and butylated hydroxyanisole (BHA) are being investigated for their ability to damage genetic material. In addition, research has shown that these compounds can rupture and damage red blood cells as well as stimulate symptoms of chemical sensitivity.”

A personal reminder to read labels.

I’ll take the fresher walnuts; without the BHT.
