One Science Teacher Adds Ingredient Labels to Fruits and Veggies

Australian chemistry teacher James Kennedy came up with these unique ingredient labels for all-natural foods. Kennedy lists all of the chemical components of a banana, an egg, blueberries and other fruits, vegetables and other farm fresh products we don’t usually associate with food labels. 

Kennedy’s goal is to assuage people’s fear of chemicals by demonstrating that even all-natural foods have many, many chemicals in them. Increasingly, people have become concerned about all of the chemicals that potentially go in and on our food, from pesticides to the unpronounceable ingredients on the labels of the packaged food we it. Kennedy’s ingredient labels show consumers that they don’t need to fear every chemical that may or may not be in our food, and that some are necessary for our health.
