Common Food Additives Linked to Bowel Diseases and Metabolic Syndrome, Study Shows (Ready Nutrition, Feb 25, 2015):

A new study revealed some disturbing information about common food additives called emulsifiers: they may promote inflammatory bowel diseases including ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease as well as a group of obesity-related conditions.

The study, which was published in the journal Nature today, was led by Georgia State University Institute for Biomedical Sciences’ researchers Drs. Benoit Chassaing and Andrew T. Gewirtz, and included contributions from Emory University, Cornell University and Bar-Ilan University in Israel.

7 Banned Food Chemicals Still Allowed In The U.S.

Flashback:

And Now: One Of The World’s Most Dangerous Chemicals As Pesticide In Strawberry Fields:

It’s called methyl iodide, and even some chemists won’t go near it. It’s such a powerful and reliable carcinogen that researchers use it to induce cancer in lab animals.

But go ahead, take a bite. California says it’s OK — and never mind the five Nobel-winning chemists and dozens of other experts who’ve written a letter begging the EPA to keep this poison out of strawberry fields, forever.

Who do you believe — a roomful of Nobel winners and their trusted colleagues, or a bunch of politically motivated bureaucrats?

This toxic monster has been linked to thyroid tumors, nerve damage, and brain and lung problems. It’s also been known to cause miscarriages in lab animals — when it’s not being used to give them cancer.

7 banned food chemicals still allowed in the U.S. (HLNtv, Oct 30, 2014):

  • Also known as ‘7 Reasons to Either Buy Organic or Immediately Move to Europe’
  • Other nations taking fewer food chances than America
  • Whiskey sold in U.S. just recalled in European nations

Three European nations decided this week they would rather not continue to keep drinking an ingredient that’s also found in antifreeze. Seems reasonable enough.

Cinnamon-flavored Fireball whiskey, owned by a Louisiana-based company, was recalled from shelves in Sweden, Norway and Finland over concerns about the amount of Propylene glycol in it. Consumption of the sweetener/antifreeze component is more tightly regulated in Europe than the United States, so when a U.S. batch of the stuff hit Scandinavia, it had to go.

70,000 Food Additives Approved By The FDA – What You Don’t Know Will Hurt You

70,000 food additives approved by the FDA – What you don’t know will hurt you (Natural News, June 26, 2014):

(NaturalNews) There are over 70,000 food additives approved by the FDA, from artificial ingredients to genetically modified ones, and from “all natural” to GRAS — generally recognized as safe. Cosmetics and personal care products are even worse, with virtually no regulations on chemicals, and your skin absorbs whatever you put on it, and it ends up in the bloodstream, so add that to the 70,000 other food “criminals.”

The phrases “as a preservative” and “to preserve freshness” mean that chemicals are at work in the items to stave off the mold and fungus, in order to extend the product’s shelf life, which also happens to shorten human life. How? These fungus and mold killers eat through the protective protein covering on your cells and cut off their oxygen supply. This is one definition, a preferred method of operation (M.O.) for cancer cells, which multiply uncontrollably and attack weakened tissue. Remove that roadblock, because it’s a very harmful one, as opposed to the way they make it sound in the ingredients list… “preservative.”

Diet Drinks Linked With Heart Disease, Death (NBC News)

Aspartame is lethal stuff:

Exposing The Devastating Health Effects Of Highly Toxic Aspartame

Diet drinks linked with heart disease, death (NBC News, March 29, 2014):

Women who drink the most diet sodas may also be more likely to develop heart disease and even to die, according to a new study published Saturday.

Researchers found women who drank two or more diet drinks a day were 30 percent more likely to have a heart attack or other cardiovascular “event,” and 50 percent more likely to die, than women who rarely touch such drinks.

The findings, being presented at a meeting of the American College of Cardiology, don’t suggest that the drinks themselves are killers. But women who toss back too many diet sodas may be trying to make up for unhealthy habits, experts say.

“Our study suggests an association between higher diet drink consumption and mortality,” said Dr. Ankur Vyas, a cardiovascular disease expert at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinic, who led the study.

“It’s not an extreme risk,” he added.

Exposing The Devastating Health Effects Of Highly Toxic Aspartame

Aspartame: By Far the Most Dangerous Substance Added to Most Foods Today (Dr. Mercola, Nov 6, 2011):

Aspartame is the technical name for the brand names NutraSweet, Equal, Spoonful, and Equal-Measure. It was discovered by accident in 1965 when James Schlatter, a chemist of G.D. Searle Company, was testing an anti-ulcer drug.Aspartame was approved for dry goods in 1981 and for carbonated beverages in 1983. It was originally approved for dry goods on July 26, 1974, but objections filed by neuroscience researcher Dr. John W. Olney and consumer attorney James Turner in August 1974, as well as investigations of G.D. Searle’s research practices caused the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to put approval of aspartame on hold (December 5, 1974). In 1985, Monsanto purchased G.D. Searle and made Searle Pharmaceuticals and The NutraSweet Company separate subsidiaries.

Aspartame accounts for over 75 percent of the adverse reactions to food additives reported to the FDA. Many of these reactions are very serious, including seizures and death. A few of the 90 different documented symptoms listed in the report as part of aspartame dangers are:

Headaches/
migraines
Dizziness Seizures Nausea Numbness
Muscle spasms Weight gain Rashes Depression Fatigue
Irritability Tachycardia Insomnia Vision problems Hearing loss
Heart palpitations Breathing difficulties Anxiety attacks Slurred speech Loss of taste
Tinnitus Vertigo Memory loss Joint pain

According to researchers and physicians studying the adverse effects of aspartame, the following chronic illnesses can be triggered or worsened by ingesting of aspartame:

Brain tumors Multiple sclerosis Epilepsy Chronic fatigue syndrome Parkinson’s disease
Alzheimer’s Mental retardation Lymphoma Birth defects Fibromyalgia
Diabetes

Aspartame is made up of three chemicals: aspartic acid, phenylalanine, and methanol. The book Prescription for Nutritional Healing, by James and Phyllis Balch lists aspartame under the category of “chemical poison.” As you shall see, that is exactly what it is.

What Is Aspartame Made Of?

Aspartic Acid (40 percent of Aspartame)

Dr. Russell L. Blaylock, a professor of neurosurgery at the Medical University of Mississippi, recently published a book thoroughly detailing the damage that is caused by the ingestion of excessive aspartic acid from aspartame. Blaylock makes use of almost 500 scientific references to show how excess free excitatory amino acids such as aspartic acid and glutamic acid (about 99 percent of monosodium glutamate or MSG is glutamic acid) in our food supply are causing serious chronic neurological disorders and a myriad of other acute symptoms.

This Is What Happens In Your Stomach When You Consume Packaged Ramen Noodles With a Deadly Preservative

This Is What Happens In Your Stomach When You Consume Packaged Ramen Noodles With a Deadly Preservative (Healthy Debates, Jan 20, 2014):

Ramen noodles contain Tertiary-butyl hydroquinone (TBHQ), which is a byproduct of the petroleum industry and food additive frequently to preserve cheap processed foods. It is one of those chemicals that is neither digestible or beneficial in any way for your body. A gastrointestinal specialist conducted an experiment with a time lapse video inside the stomach, comparing both fresh and preserved ramen noodles. After two hours of digestion, the results were staggering.

The first-of-its-kind experiment by Dr. Braden Kuo of Massachusetts General Hospital wanted to find out exactly what happens to food in the stomach and digestive tract after consuming ramen noodles.

This Ingredient Is Found In Most Cereals, Breads, But It’s Also Found In Foamed Plastics and Rubber Too


Source: Azodicarbonamide has been banned in most European countries because it has been found to induce asthma. It has been deemed so dangerous that in Singapore, if you are found to use Azodicarbonamide in your products, you will receive a hefty $450,000 fine and up to 15 YEARS IN PRISON.

This Ingredient Is Found In Most Cereals, Breads, But It’s Also Found In Foamed Plastics and Rubber Too (Waking Times, Sep 11, 2013):

Why would it be necessary for the food industry to use the same additive in breads and cereals as what the chemical industry uses in the production of foamed plastics, synthetic leathers and rubber? We have been assured by our health regulatory agencies that azodicarbonamide is safe for use in our foods. If that’s the case, then why has it been banned in Europe, Australia and the United Kingdom?

Chick-Fil-A Sandwiches Contain MSG, HFCS And Anti-Foaming Chemicals

Chick-fil-A sandwiches contain MSG, HFCS and anti-foaming chemicals; eating them is a sin in the eyes of God (Natural News, Aug 2, 2012):

This article is sure to get me in trouble with everybody, but I just had to cringe yesterday when I heard news reports of people lining up at Chick-fil-A restaurants all across the country to protest the attack on the restaurant’s CEO by the LGBT community (and same-sex marriage advocates). (http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/OTUS/chick-fil-supporters-gather-appre…)

To stage an anti-boycott in support of Chick-fil-A, defenders of traditional Christian values and straight marriage lined up all across America to eat — huh? — monosodium glutamate!

USDA Green-Lights Field Trials Of Monsanto Drought-Resistant Corn After Admitting It Offers Absolutely No Improvement In Crop Yields

USDA green-lights field trials of Monsanto drought-resistant corn after admitting it performs no better than natural corn (Natural News, March 20, 2012):

The U.S. Department of Agriculture‘s (USDA) Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) does not even pretend to legitimately evaluate genetically-modified organisms (GMO) before approving them anymore, having recently green-lighted approval for a new variety of “drought-resistant” GM corn produced by Monsanto that admittedly grows no better under drought conditions than natural varieties do.

According to the Washington Post, APHIS fast-tracked the corn, known as MON87460, without ever conducting an appropriate environmental risk analysis on the crop’s efficacy, which includes determining whether or not the crop is even safe for humans or the environment. In fact, in accordance with the Obama Administration’s new hands-off approach to regulating GMOs, APHIS decided to actually approve MON87460 even after a cursory evaluation of the data exposed it as a complete failure.
