Many studies have found a popular food additive, carrageenan, causes widespread digestive discomfort and even colon tumors.  Although the Food and Drug Administration claims that carrageenan is safe, peer-reviewed studies, including by the National Institute of Health, suggest that it may have potentially cause serious harm to those who consume it.
Carrageenan is found in many foods, even those labeled as “natural” and “organic,” including dairy products such as chocolate milk, ice cream and sour cream, frozen dinners, soy milk, prepared poultry, cold cuts, nutritional drinks and even infant formula.  Outraged consumers are petition the FDA for the removal of carrageenan from food.
