More and more people are waking up to how unhealthy our food is and that we cannot trust food companies to provide us with good nutritious food, and therefore have to research which companies are good and which are bad.
When it comes to alcohol though, very few people do any research at all and this is a major mistake. The problem is that these huge companies, through their lobbyists, have bribed political officials with large amounts of money to make sure that their products are not labeled.
Some of the harmful ingredients that they try to hide are as follows;
- GMO Corn Syrup
- GMO Corn
- High Fructose Corn Syrup
- Fish Bladder
- Propylene Glycol
- Monosodium Glutamate (MSG)
- artificial Flavors
- GMO Sugars
- Caramel Coloring
- Insect-Based Dyes
- & many more.
