I started paying attention to the foods that I ate about 9 years ago. I can say today that it’s one of the best things that I have ever done for myself. Not only do I rarely get sick by avoiding foods that attack my immune system and other vital organs, I also feel better all around.
How I did this? Well, I studied, read lots of books on the subject, Googled plenty, attended night school programs, read every package of a product before it entered my shopping basket, and of course, ate healthy. It’s almost second nature to me now to know which food ingredients are ok to eat once in a while, and which ones to avoid like the plague. But with a little database behind you, you should be well on your way to being healthy.
Hopefully by now you are asking, how can I get the same information and knowledge without all the hard work and research? That’s where the ‘Don’t Eat That’ iPhone app comes in handy. The app is downloaded to your iPhone, this gives you access to 1500+ food additives, ingredients and chemicals, including those that are carcinogenic, unhealthy for children, or are commonly known allergens. The database is stored on your iPhone so no Wi-Fi or 3G access is necessary, just download, hit the grocery store and investigate.
Searching for ingredients can be done by several categories; which are harmful to children, banned ingredients, carcinogens, genetically modified, allergies and asthma. We know Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) are not identified as such, with the Don’t Eat That app you can look up food ingredients that are not listed on U.S. food labels, but are in fact GMO. It even has detailed information on E numbers for food additives named in Europe.
The Don’t Eat That app officially launches today and can be downloaded here for $1.99 from the iTunes App Store.
