Ladies and gents get ready for a little show and tell. For years we’ve heard health professionals warn us about the dangers of eating processed foods. From weight gain to heart disease, these foods are on the top of every doctor’s do not eat list and if you’ve never taken heed…this might make you change your mind.

TEDxManhattan 2011 Fellow Stefani Bardin’s created a video that shows what happens in your body when you eat processed foods vs. homemade versions of similar foods, using a tiny “M2A” (that stands for Mouth to Anus) LED/camera capsule. The project looks at two subjects eating two similar meals: one composed of processed foods (gatorade, ramen, and gummi bears); the other of homemade versions (hibiscus drink, homemade broth with noodles and gummi bears made of juice) and the results will seriously make you lose your lunch.

Check out the video below.

Does the video make you rethink eating processed foods?
