    You can't just list names of compounds and make claims along the lines of "oh I can't pronounce this so it's bad for me". Sodium bicarbonate might sound scary, but it's just baking soda. If you want to say these things are unhealthy then you need to provide evidence. This is a prime example of the general spreading of pseudoscience today that largely contributes to major problems stemming from scientific illiteracy, such as widespread denial of climate change or the idea that vaccines cause autism. This video is more than misleading; it's literally harmful.

    Love the EU/UK thing, because it felt so natural to not include the UK in the EU... Anyway, those things not banned in America aren't banned simply because of your industrial lobbies, that's all. It's the same thing with many pesticides. Another thing that's banned in the EU that you drink every day is bisphenol A. Thing thing mimicks estrogen, and so causes potential problems. They put it in the inside liner of cans for example, so every time your drink pepsi or a coke, boom, it's like you got estrogens. It's been banned in baby formula in the US, but still not banned for adult consumption. It's fully banned in France.

    Astaxanthin is completely harmless. It's a natural component, but farmed salmon need to be artificial fed with it, because most fish-foods create grey flesh

    It's not banned because America. Also you can get all of this in practically any country, as long as it's not ''enriched''. It is a bit odd though, because you can't eat any of these enhancers in Europe, but you can pretty much drink as soon as you learn to walk XD

    Same mistake as other videos on YouTube: USA isn't the same as "America". America was the name set to the new land by European conquerors in late 1400. Furthermore, by the time this new land was named America in 1507 the piece of land that belongs to USA nowadays wasn't discovered yet. In addition, when U.S. congress decided to add the "of America" suffix to name this country in 1776, the name "America" was already taken and used for the entire mass of land for over 250 years earlier ... I mean ... TWO and a HALF CENTURIES earlier!!! This means that America is the whole continent that consists of three regions (not continents): South America, Central America and North America. Therefore, all their native people are Americans, including the ones who were born and live in U.S.A. Just read what the world history says.

  • Helgard Van Rensburg

    Is this suppose to be entertaining or informative?

    Clearly zero research has gone into why certain foods were banned:
    Synthetic Astaxanthin is most probably good for you, though not as good as natural astaxanthin consumed by wild salmon. Definitely not banned in Australia as there big debate ongoing on the use of it (and other farming method) in Tasmanian salmon farms.
    Yellow #6 there was one study 50 years ago that said it was bad, has since been disproved numerous times over through agencies all over the world
    The problem of the use rBGH has nothing to do with the milk (that debate has been settled) more to do with the health and farming ethics on the cows and why it is banned in the countries mentioned.

    Buzzfeed is doing precisely what they are accusing FDA/farmers/food producers are doing.

    The hormone they feed to the cow is in the milk. That is why 7 year olds are developing like they are 12 year olds. My 12 year old cousin was getting boobs at the age of 8. We tell her to stop but she's a milk baby. She won't drink anything else.
