10 American Foods That Are Not Accepted in Other Countries

6. Arsenic-laced Chicken

Arsenic-based drugs are used for animal feed in the U.S because they make animals grow faster and make their meat appear more pink. [1]The FDA claims the drugs are safe because they are less toxic in the inorganic form, carcinogen. [9]But studies suggest that organic arsenic can transform into inorganic arsenic, and have a harmful effect on the human body,[4] which is why the European Union does not permit arsenic-based drugs to be given to animals that are used for food.

7. Baked Goods with Potassium Bromate

Protassium bromate is used as an additive in breads and baked goods. [3]Studies have linked potassium bromate to kidney and nervous system damage, thyroid problems, gastrointestinal discomfort and even cancer. [10]It’s banned in Canada, China and the European Union.

8. Olestra/Olean

Created by Procter & Gamble, Olestra ( also called Olean ), is a calorie, [9]and cholesterol-free fat substitute often used in fat-free snacks. Your chips and french fries could contain Olestra,[2] causing problems such as diarrhea, cramps and leaky bowels. That’s why it’s banned in the United Kingdom and in Canada.

9. BHA and BHT

BHA ( butylated hydroxyanisole ) and BHT ( butylated hydroxytoluene ) are preservatives that are commonly used in food.[9] BHA has been proven to cause cancer in rats, and could possibly cause cancer in humans.[3] These two harmful preservatives are banned in Japan and parts of the European Union, and the United Kingdom does not allow them to be used in the production of baby food.[8]

10. Milk and Dairy Laced with rBGH

American foods

RBGH is a synthetic version of natural bovine somatotropin that is injected into cows to increase milk production.[5] In humans, it can increase risk for cancer by converting normal tissue cells into cancerous ones. [4]rBGH is banned in Australia, New Zealand, Israel, the European Union and Canada.[2]
