Video: What Happens In Your Body When You Eat Processed Foods

By Anthony Gucciardi

If there was any doubt left in your mind over the health devastating effects of processed foods, this may be the final nail in the coffin. In a video documenting what goes on in your body after consuming processed verse whole foods, small electronic devices reveal just how much your body struggles in digesting and utilizing processed foods laced with damaging ingredients like high-fructose corn syrup (which contains mercury) and aspartame. Oftentimes the truth is quite dirty, and in the case of this video you may want to make sure you’re not eating while watching — especially not processed foods!

The video examines what happens in your body after consuming both processed foods and foods deemed to be wholesome. For processed foods, the subject consumed Gatorade, Top Ramen, and gummi bears, while the participant consuming a hibiscus drink, homemade broth with noodles, and gummi bears created from juice. Created by video producer Stefani Bardin in conjunction with  gastroenterologist Dr. Braden Kuo at Harvard University, the video shows that you cannot even properly digest processed foods. In the case of Gatorade, it has to do with the harsh artificial ingredients that even manage to preserve the blue color for quite some time.

Using a tiny LED camera capsule, the team was able to track the visual progress of food digestion between the two different meal categories.

As you are probably fully aware, the dangers posed by processed ingredients are due to the destructive nature that the ingredients contain. In the case of genetically modified foods, which are now consuming the food supply, it is known that longterm damage can occur to human health — particularly in regards to organ damage. As video producer  Stefani Bardin puts it: Ramen noddles are meant to survive armageddon, whereas  homemade noodles are made to be eaten. If you have not yet done so, I encourage you to begin your own organic garden and purchase local, 100% organic produce for you and your family. It is very simple to begin organic gardening, and it can be very therapeutic for your mental health as well.
