Most canned foods contain unhealthy ingredients including extra salt, sugar and/or preservatives.
In 2012, approximately 38.2 billion aluminum beverage cans ended up in U.S. landfills, the equivalent of 121 cans for every American man, woman, and child.
The can material is made of aluminum and the aluminum is produced from Bauxite ore. Mining of bauxite is a dirty process which involves destruction of trees, shrubs, plants, flowers, animals, and biodiversity. This causes erosion, sedimentation build up in rivers and streams, drinking water pollution, and farmland degradation.
Red mud left behind after bauxite processing is highly toxic.
What Can We Do?
The best approach is to cut out canned foods and beverages from your diet on an everyday basis or at least highly limit their consumption .
