Fake food fear factor

A lady asked me the other day if she should be concerned about fake foods. The answer is a definite yes. Fake foods contain ingredients that can be poisonous and can ruin a person's health.

Last week a reputable toothpaste in the US was at the centre of a fake food scam and several tubes had to be removed because they contained cancer-causing substances. If it can happen there, it certainly could happen here, and the consequences could be devastating.

Look at what happened when a poisonous substance got into our pet food. Just think what would happen if it was human food.
