You may be familiar with the Environmental Working Group (EWG) because they release a list of the most pesticide-filled produce every year called The Dirty Dozen. They also establish the produce that contains the least amount of pesticides in a list called The Clean Fifteen.

Now, the EWG has released a totally new list that outlines the food additives out there that are the biggest health concerns. Make sure to check the nutritional labels for the following food additives before buying food products, because as the EWG points out, many of them have been associated with some pretty troubling issues, and these additives can sneak into all sorts of processed foods and drinks.

Check out the slideshow above to learn all about this new list of food additives to avoid.
