Badditives Authors at Little Egg Harbor Library Nov. 15

Nov 01, 2017

Had your daily helping of aluminum, red dye 40, fluoride and meat glue this morning? These are just four of the harmful food additives that may be sneaking into your food and body, according to Little Egg Harbor authors Bill and Linda Bonvie.

The writing duo will be speaking about their new book, Badditives! The 13 Most Harmful Food Additives in Your Diet – and How to Avoid Them on Wednesday, Nov. 15,  at 7 p.m. at the Little Egg Harbor branch of the Ocean County Library.

According to the authors, as Linda Bonvie was quoted in a recent article in The SandPaper, “Big Food gets to do just about anything they care to, leaving the consumer wandering in a dazzling array of food items in your typical supermarket, but with a whole lot of them not fit for consumption.”

“The message, from my perspective, is that you can’t trust processed foods you buy in the supermarket simply because the brand names are long familiar, or you ate it when you were a kid, nor can you assume that they must be safe because they’re FDA approved,” said her brother, Bill Bonvie.

The Bonvies have been researching and writing about health and environmental subjects for near 30 years and have published a handful of books on health such as The Stevia Story: a tale of incredible sweetness and intrique, Raising Chemical-Free Kids and Chemical-Free Kids: the Organic Sequel. They have also written for many newspapers, such as The SandPaper, Chicago TribunePhiladelphia Inquirer and Boston Globe. They also wrote a twice-weekly blog for the nonprofit “Citizens for Health,” based in Washington, D.C. Their blog, “Food Identity Theft,” was the motivation for their new book.

A question and answer session will follow the lecture. They will have their book for sale and will autograph it.

The Little Egg Harbor Library is located at 290 Mathistown Rd . Register by calling 609-294-1197. —P.J.
