Foods banned in Europe still lurk in America

A recent study by the writers of Treehugger have come up with surprising differences between the EU and American policies on food and food additives. A list of foods banned in Europe (including chlorinated chickens, Bovine Growth Hormone, Stevia, genetically modified foods, pesticides, food contact chemicals, and a planned ban on food dyes) are still regulated — and accepted — by the FDA in America.

Many of the reasons the above have been banned (Stevia, for example, has been linked to infertility and chlorinated chickens are said to be degenerated) are reasonable, but many wonder: is the EU too stringent with food regulations and not allowing consumers to make their own decisions? Americans, on the other hand, would do well to look towards their European counterparts for advice — weigh your options, and proceed with caution.
