Score a point for the courts and consumers! One line of products will be a little less falsely advertised. Check out the article here, on how Naked Juices have to remove “Natural” from their labels per a class action lawsuit and judge’s ruling.
I’ve taught classes on label reading and I frequently get comments like, “I don’t have time to read the label,” “I don’t know what have the things on the label mean,” “The print is too small.”
Relying on what the FRONT label says for the value of your product, may not be the best bet! It may say “Vanilla Cream” when in fact it has NO vanilla and NO cream – just artificial ingredients with side effects that can compound their effects when we add in the other things you are exposed to.
Don’t have time? When would you like to schedule your next bi-pass or biopsy?
Don’t know what the ingredients are? – DON’T buy it.
The print is too small? – They have “cheaters” at the grocery store, pick up a pair, heck even borrow a pair and put em back when you are done!
The only way to know what is in the product is by reading the label on the back. In some cases, that won’t even help.
When I compound all the artificial things I eat, slather on, and breathe, I’m not giving my body a chance to fight off and avoid those debilitating diseases that are so rampant in our society today.
Give yourself a break. Go au natural and STOP buying things just because the label makes a false claim.
(Please know, I’ve been lured in to this trap as well, just getting much better at being aware and making different choices today.)
