Subway Removes Risky Chemical from their Breads

Did you know that “azodiacarbonamide,” a plastic-based additive found in yoga mats and shoe soles, is also an ingredient in the breads at Subway? The chemical helps produce the air in the foam yoga mats, and it does the same for the bread. An activist blogger took action by getting over 57,000 individuals to sign her petition to Subway to remove this dangerous chemical from the ingredient list. The World Health Organization has found a relationship between this chemical additive to respiratory issues, allergies and asthma. Azodiacarbonamide is currently banned in Europe and Australia, but legal in the U.S. and Canada. Subway announced last week that they will be removing the chemical, you can thank activist blogger, Vani Hari.
