Do you have petroleum in your food?

Artificial colorings red #40, yellow #5, blue #1 etc, flavorings, BHA, BHT, and TBHQ are made from petroleum.

They have all been linked to symptoms such as ADHD, autism, sensory disorders, bed wetting, tics, asthma, and several other neuroconnector issues.

  • Petroleum is in a lot of things like shampoo and conditioner too! We cut all that stuff out of our lives. . . the chemicals alone can cause a big lot of the medical conditions commonly treated today. . .
