Stop! Don't eat that....

Organic market in Rome.
Knowing you have an interest in healthy eating, I thought you might find this article worth reading.
It's on the Internet so it MUST be true....
On the No No list you will find these US made foods, sold here, are banned in other countries. But some of the countries have changed their product make-up  to UN-ban the food to export to other countries to make it safer to consume, and they still don't change it here. Go figure!
Highlights from the article--to save time....the article lists more....

Mountain Dew --banned in Europe (MD does keep you from spontaneously bursting into flames)
Boxed foods, (Mac and Cheese) --banned in Austria, Norway, warnings in Britain, European Union
Chicken fed with Arsenic --banned by the European Union (lots of skinny chicks over there)
Bread made in the US --banned in Canada and China and the EU
Food made with Olestra --banned in UK and Canada (I never thought this stuff was a good idea)
Preservatives BHA and BHT (it's in everything) --banned in EU, Japan, UK
Milk and Dairy Products Made with rBGH  --Australia, New Zealand, Israel, EU and Canada

Next time I have to grocery shop, I'm going to France. Well, I could go to Canada once in awhile.

Here's a mini-world tour of food I have experienced in traveling out of the USA. 

Frankfort, Germany. BOILED pork chop!

Fish in Ostia Antica, Italy.
The making of CAT POO POO Coffee--yes, cat feces, actually. The USA would probably prohibit this coffee.

On the coast of Bali, Indonesia.

Ubud, Bali, Indonesia

Vancouver, Canada.

Dessert, in Ireland.
