“The average American eats about 20 pounds dry weight of additives each
YEAR. This is ten times the amount used 40 years ago. Those who eat a lot of
packaged, processed, or take-out foods may eat twice the average amount or
more. Children in particular have a very high intake because many of the
manufactured foods that appeal to them are rich in additives.”
