Sign the petition: Tell food companies to stop using potassium

bromate in their products NOW.

A recent analysis from EWG has found potassium bromate – a food additive that’s been linked to cancer – in more than 86 baked goods and other food products.

The popular additive is added to flour to strengthen the dough, help it rise and give the finished bread an appealing white color.

Research has shown it can damage DNA in human liver and intestinal cells. In animal studies, it’s been linked to cancer and development of tumors.

Sign EWG’s petition today urging food companies to stop using this possible cancer-causing additive in their food products immediately!
