The loaded weapon in your kid's lunchbox

Boy times sure have changed since I was a kid. There are metal detectors in every school. Your granddaughter can't bring a purse to class without passing it through some state-of-the-art X-ray machine first. Bulky, armed security guards are roaming the halls like members of some Israeli SWAT team.

So how on earth are MILLIONS of American kids sneaking deadly weapons into our schools every single day? You won't find them in their lockers, or stashed in their socks -- these chemical bombs are stuffed right in your kiddo's lunchbox.

And there's a good chance you put it there!

A new UK study has found that those "healthy" cans of peaches and cups of "fruit cocktail" you're packing into your child's lunch every day could have him munching his way to an early grave -- and these phony health foods aren't much better for you, either.

In fact, folks who ate the most canned or frozen fruits and vegetables actually increased their risk of death by a shocking 17%. That's because frozen and canned fruits and vegetables are packed in syrups and deadly preservatives that kill important nutrients and attack your organs.

Listen, for years you've been telling your kids and grandkids to never judge a book by its cover -- so start taking some of your own advice. That can in the supermarket aisle may say "pears" or "corn" on the outside, but it's what's REALLY on the inside that counts -- a sugar-loaded time bomb that doesn't deserve space in your kitchen cabinets, or your kid's belly.
