8 More Gross Things You Are Probably Eating

Earlier this week I posted a gallery of the 8 Gross Things You Are Probably Eating. I like to think that the post opened up a few eyes as to what is really contained in the food that we eat.  As someone on a mission to live healthier, I know that I have been surprised as to what I have really been putting in my body.

My original list contained food products that use ingredients like sand, human hair, ammonia, and more; however, a comment left by a reader piqued my interest.

So, here's an additional eight things you are probably eating.
