We all know the junk food is bad for you, but understanding exactly why and how it affects your body is a game changer!
It seems that the U.S. FDA is attempting to crack down on a food additive that has already been banned in Europe and Japan called BVO.
“The agency concluded that the intended use of BVO in food is no longer considered safe after the results of studies conducted in collaboration with the National Institutes of Health … found the potential for adverse health effects in humans,” said James Jones (FDA’s deputy commissioner for human foods) in a statement, according to CNN.
