Thank you, thank you, thank you, to blogger James Kennedy, for this:
You see, regular foodstuffs found in nature are chock full of E-numbers, sugars, acids, and things ending in “-ose” and “-dehyde” and “-zene”.
I think James has made himself a bit of a legend here. I foresee these visuals achieving cult status, like Che Guevara t-shirts or Miley Cyrus’s tongue.
So let this be an end to the hunt for killer “chemicals” in processed food, and the paranoid boycott of same. Let it be an end to the claim that “natural” or “organic” foods are somehow “chemical-free,” as if they didn’t even exist, which is really just dumb (they do exist).
Read more on James’s blog here. He has lovingly prepared equivalent charts for bananas and blueberries. Which are also full of CHEMICALS! He has even produced a series of very large posters on his wonderful site. “Free to use” he points out very kindly, but do also go to his shop for his t-shirts and stuff…
Thank you, James. Thank you, and thank you again.
