Grassroots movement tries to ban yoga mats and shoe leather from Subway sandwiches…
I couldn’t be more supportive of small, grassroots efforts by writers, researchers, and bloggers to abolish toxic food additives and ingredients regularly consumed by the public.
And every once in a while, I have to share something with you that you may not otherwise see or read unless you’re really tuned into the grassroots movement.
Earlier this week, witnessing the powerful effort by the informational ‘food babe’ website really put a smile on my face.
On February 4th, 2014, the website launched this petition for Subway to abolish a nasty chemical called azodicarbonamide found in Subway sandwiches. (Let’s call it “AZO” in this article.)
AZO is a plastic chemical that was found in Subway sandwiches’ bread.
You can also find it on the bottom of your shoe… literally.
It’s used in yoga mats and synthetic materials like shoe rubber. YUCK!
But the signatures aren’t worth a thing if Subway sandwiches doesn’t get rid of the toxic ingredients found in it’s bread.
How Dangerous IS Azodicarbonamide?
Millions of people all over the world – many children- are exposed to the chemicals Subway uses.
And it’s pretty well-accepted in the scientific community that these carcinogenic chemicals are linked to asthma and allergies – which are epidemic in children today.
Here’s what’s WORSE…
- A truck carrying AZO flipped over on a Chicago highway in 2001 and people were evacuated for a half mile radius around the accident!! Many people experienced burning eyes and skin irritation from the spilled chemical.
- In the UK, AZO has been deemed a potential cause of asthma by the Health & Safety Executive
- When AZO is heated, studies link it to tumors and cancer
- AZO is banned in Europe and Australia.
- You will get fined $450,000 for using AZO in Singapore
- You may serve up to 15 years in prison in Singapore for using AZO
If you’re more of a social media person, you can also find a lot of social traffic around this topic with the hashtag #nowaysubway.
