Revealed: Shocking list of popular foods and drinks readily available in U.S. grocery stores that are BANNED in other countries because their chemicals are deemed 'dangerous'

If you enjoy snacks and drinks like Mtn Dew, Chex Mix, Hungry Man frozen dinners, or roughly 80 percent of all the packaged foods sold in your average, American grocery store, you may want to sit down before reading this.

Many of the chemicals found in America's most common foods are considered to be so unhealthy that they're actually ILLEGAL in other countries.

Just because someone has "determined" that something is dangerous - or any other label - doesn't mean anything; what matters is the criteria used to make that determination, not the mere fact of the determination.

After all, in the late 1700s and early 1800s, the United States determined that slavery was legally acceptable, even if morally repugnant to some.  Does that mean that determination is worth even an iota of respect?
