Processed foods are known for their extra-long lists of chemical-laden ingredients.
But even the simplest of foods may come with a surprisingly long list, accordingly to James Kennedy, an Australian chemistry teacher, who has put together the following infographics.
Where did Kennedy get this clever idea? Apparently he’s motivated to promote chemistry not only to his students: “I want to erode the fear that many people have of ‘chemicals’– says Kennedy – and demonstrate that nature evolves compounds, mechanisms and structures far more complicated and unpredictable than anything we can produce in the lab.”
