    Harmful Additives In Processed Food

    As we are getting hectic with daily routine work, we as a ladies try to lesser our burden mostly in cooking i.e. we purchase processed foods and packed foods. Though we know it is an unhealthy practice but still we tend to do it for temporary stress free.

    I donít know itís because of this processed foodís reaction or what, today my aunts family is lacking back with no strength, less hemoglobin level and so on

    Now my concern is to know much about injurious Additives that are added to processed foods and their effects.

    Hope I get some valuable answer for my query!
