Reason No 32 Why NOT To Eat A Twinkie

In an older issue of the magazine “body and soul” was a blurb about reason no. 32 why NOT to eat a twinkie !!

( Excuse me, but how many reasons can there be?? )

One of the ingredients: ethylene oxide ( part of polysorbate 60) is an excellant,  but unlikely food chemical.  It’s highly explosive ( as it was used for tunnel – busting shells in the vietnam war explosive), and known as a human carcinogen and a lung, skin and eye irritant.

yummy, give me some of that !!

This tidbit of information is cited from a book by Steve Ettlinger: Twinkie, deconstructed: How the ingredients found in processed foods are grown, mined ( yes, mined) and munipulated into what america eats.
