Why Is The Food Industry Trying To Kill Us? - Top 10 Food Additives to Avoid
 
Top 10 Food Additives to Avoid

Posted By Dr. Mercola | December 17 2010

1.Aspartame, also known as Nutrasweet and Equal, is believed to be carcinogenic and accounts for more reports of adverse reactions than all other foods and food additives combined.

The artificial sweetener Acesulfame-K has been linked to kidney tumors. All artificial sweeteners are bad news.

2.High Fructose Corn Syrup

High fructose corn syrup (HFCS) increases your LDL ("bad") cholesterol levels and contributes to the development of diabetes.

3.Monosodium Glutamate (MSG)

MSG is used as a flavor enhancer. It is an excitotoxin, a substance that overexcites cells to the point of damage or death.

4.Trans Fat

Numerous studies show that trans fat increases LDL cholesterol levels and increases your risk of heart attacks, heart disease and strokes.

5.Common Food Dyes

Artificial colorings may contribute to behavioral problems in children and lead to a significant reduction in IQ.

6.Sodium Sulphite

This is a preservative used in processed foods. People who are sulfite sensitive can experience headaches, breathing problems, and rashes. In severe cases, sulfites can actually cause death.

7.Sodium Nitrate/Sodium Nitrite

This common preservative has been linked to various types of cancer.

8.BHA and BHT

Butylated hydroxyanisole (BHA) and butylated hydrozyttoluene (BHT) are preservatives that affect the neurological system of your brain, alter behavior and have the potential to cause cancer.

9.Sulphur Dioxide

Sulphur additives are toxic and in the U.S., they have been prohibited in raw fruit and vegetables. Adverse reactions include bronchial problems, low blood pressure, and anaphylactic shock.

10.Potassium Bromate

This additive is used to increase volume in some breads. It is known to cause cancer in animals, and even small amounts can create problems for humans.

........and that's just what they're puttin in our food. What about our water?and what are they spraying us with from above???

the answer to this question and most other questions of this ilk is.........
 
............M-O-N-E-Y......................nothing personal, just money..........

I think you can add GMOs to that list too.

We don't pay near as much as the food and pharma/petro/chemical industries do, so who is it they really work for? It's pretty much impossible not to ingest some of the crap they put in food, but I try as diligently as I can to stay away from processed, non-organic foods and tap water.

This is one of the most important threads that has been posted all year. I've been considering posting something similar, but the combination of my laziness and the apathy of others makes it difficult to motivate myself. ;)

Something that worries me is the treatment of our feed animals, especially cows. They're shot up with steroids and growth hormones from birth to death, and they're fed nothing but corn their entire lives.

Note: Cows eat grass, not corn. Cows are able to digest grass more easily, but corn is cheaper to produce and transport. A diet consisting entirely of corn makes the cows much more likely to produce E-coli bacteria, which is fatal to humans, so be careful what you feed your kids.

If you feel like doing some independent research, start checking your food labels. Probably 80% of items in our supermarkets contain corn in one form or another. Ask yourself, why is the US government massively overproducing corn?

Because dollars are more important than lives.

These regulatory bodies have become infiltrated by corporations. This is what corporatism is. The FDA is run by Monsanto. Fascism.

I know diddly squat about this food additive subject but sometimes just get curious when reading other related things in posts.

To me massively "over-producing" any grown and harvested product implies an action that results in the availability of that product massively exceeding the demand which almost always result in financial loss to the grower of that product.

Probably I'm missing something that should be obvious to me, but I'm struggling to see how more dollars can be the end of result of the US Govt massively "over-producing" corn, other than perhaps more dollars for those who can buy corn cheaper, if cheaper corn is the result of "over-producing".

Is that what you were implying?

If yes, presumably it inludes the follow-on implied suggestion that individuals in the Govt are being paid backhanders by the buyers of corn for continuing to influence farmers crop growing strategies to increase corn production beyond the level of normal demands.

Would the list of parties paying these bribes also include all the foreign countries who benefit from being able to buy American corn on the international corn markets cheaper than they ought to be able to or are they just lucky incidental beneficiaries of someone else's bribery?

Is it because the more people that they manage to kill the greater number of people there are that will be alive and thus the more money they will make from their foods?

Mmmmm....errr....on reflection maybe not....there could just possibly be a flaw in that :rolleyes: :)

Every one of these agencies except the CDC needs to be dissolved.
They have become to large and powerful. Most notably the EPA.

I actually wasn't implying any large-scale conspiracy (this time), I was pointing out a verifiable fact.

Corn is a very malleable product, it can be broken down and modified into just about anything. The same substance is food, sugar, syrup and fuel for vehicles. It's included in many products that have no business containing corn: wheat bread, jell-o, and a thousand other things.

Because of its versatility, it is used in many products when a more reasonable alternative is available, albeit slightly more expensive. (Even if it isn't the healthiest option for the consumer; therefore dollars > lives.)

Understood.....what's still not understood is how "massively over-producing corn" (if over-producing means producing more than is necessary to meet all the different market/industry demands) can result in "more dollars"....surely massively over- producing any harvested crop means" less dollars"?..... wouldn't more dollars actually be made if they didn't massively over-produce?

Am I being thick and missing something obvious? It wouldn't be the first time that's for sure :)

I'm just of the ilk that doesnt think its necessary for the government to give me eating advice.

A good portion of Americans are gluttonous slobs with or without this ad.

The imagery wasn't really what bothered me, it was the complete fabricated lie that "drinking a soda a day will make you gain 10lbs in a year." Its like Reefer Madness, but directed at Soda. People are smart enough to know when they are being lied to. Lie to them enough, and they just stop listening. Look at the Drug War.

Im all for promoting good health, but demonizing companies like Coca Cola (with my money none the less) isn't going to do it.

I'm going to start my own personal health commercials...

"Put down the fork and get your ass on a treadmill."

I started going to a gym about 5 years ago, and I couldn't imagine not doing it. I love it.

I sit behind a computer all day at work, and without that 7-8 hours of strenuous exercise a week, Id pprobably be as big as a house. =]

Additionally, by staying active, I can enjoy a delicious Soda now and again, and not worry about it.

I suppose that if people were generally smart enough to know when they're being lied to, companies like Coca cola and McDonalds wouldn't be spending tens of millions a year on Madison Avenue advertising in order to convince the consumer that "things go better with Coke", or "you deserve a break today". People, generally, are morons.

Nutrition isn't even taught in schools any longer, in fact, Taco Bell and Coke have bought their way into, and are served in lunchrooms. The corporations, through their financial control of the media, advertising, and school boards, control our children's minds, and diets, from the moment they start watching TV, even more so when they enter kindergarten, and likely until their dying day. If anyone doubts this unfortunate, but obvious, truth, all they need do is take a good look around at the obese, Hagen Das sucking, smoking, heart diseased, brain dead masses, walking the malls, or waiting on line at McDonalds.

That particular ad may be targeting teenagers, or others that need a visual. I believe that the anti smoking advertising campaigns are having a major impact discouraging smoking.

It may sound very independent and intelligent to say that we don't need the government to tell us what to eat. But that's totally unrealistic when we consider the advertising power we're up against. We are absolutely losing this battle, and we can use all the help we can get. IMO

I'm kind of in the same boat you are with the not completely understanding the whole thing part. I know that a portion of America's corn crop gets plowed under. I know that our government subsidizes the corn crop so that if it gets too cheap, they make up the difference to the growers to keep them in business. As I understand the problem alluded to here with the over producing, it is Monsanto that is pushing their corn and basically forcing everyone to grow their corn by suing anyone who has even one plant in their field of Monsanto's genetically modified corn without paying Monsanto, whether by design or accident. They are also selling this GMO corn to other countries, like Mexico, cheaper than they can buy other types of corn. Mexico happens to have the most diverse corn crop with many different varieties, but they are being overrun by Monsanto's corn. The people who make products from the corn can buy America's Monsanto corn much cheaper than their locally grown corn. By flooding the market with cheap corn, local growers all over the world are potentially being undercut and starved out. Of course, this is a generalization and not a concise description of each market, buffeted by my ignorance on the subject.

Sulfur dioxide is in probably 99% of the wine being made. Most of the mentioned side effects are from real high doses or contact with it in its gaseous form.

Some wines actually do have pretty high levels, mostly cheap wines and especially blends like low end sangrias,etc...

Most wineries keep their sulfur levels low and I refuse to believe its all that bad for you. I have asthma and I've stuck my head in countless barrels of the powdered version without having a major reaction.

Now when I put my head in a Gallo tank used for brandy and it had just been dosed with liquid SO2, my lungs did shrink to half size. We're talking 100 times the level in ppm that is actually in wine, though.

Anyone who comes out with a better wine preservative than sulfur dioxide will be rich quick. Large wineries go through literally tons of the stuff in very short time.

Very few people going to school to become Doctors even receive nutrition training. We're conditioned to eat absolute garbage, and to shovel in larger and larger quantities of it. Then you're supposed to take drugs when your body starts breaking down because it can't process all that stuff, or heal itself.
It's a vicious downwards cycle that most people refuse to even see, let alone break....

socialist foodies & Marxist health food nuts
 
Agribusiness should be able to control government regulatory agencies, school lunch programs, design nutrition curricula...

Its the "American way."

Questioning high fructose corn syrup, sugar cereals, MSG, antibiotics in chicken, growth hormones in beef, food dyes... is a plot revealed in the Protocols of Zion & implemented by the Rothschilds.

The John Birch Society only began questioning fluoridation when Soros began bombarding them with chicken soup lasers.

Organic farming is practiced in Castro's Cuba.

Composting was introduced by Karl Marx in the Communist Manifesto.

I learned all this over a Whopper dinner with Glen Beck.

Hey my friend.....There's a great documentary showing on Link TV this week entitled...."The Power Of Community: How Cuba Survived Peak Oil...."

It focuses on the success of the Organic Farming endeavors started in the 90's there and shows the result of the now more than 90% of Cuba's food coming from these small farms.

The world could learn a lot from the Cubans....:groucho:

What say C/O....Do you get Link TV....?

Via: Washington Post:

An environmental group that analyzed the drinking water in 35 cities across the United States, including Bethesda and Washington, found that most contained hexavalent chromium, a probable carcinogen that was made famous by the film “Erin Brockovich.”

The study, which will be released Monday by the Environmental Working Group, is the first nationwide analysis of hexavalent chromium in drinking water to be made public.

It comes as the Environmental Protection Agency is considering whether to set a limit for hexavalent chromium in tap water. The agency is reviewing the chemical after the National Toxicology Program, part of the National Institutes of Health, deemed it a “probable carcinogen” in 2008.

The federal government restricts the amount of “total chromium” in drinking water and requires water utilities to test for it, but that includes both trivalent chromium, a mineral that humans need to metabolize glucose, and hexavalent chromium, the metal that has caused cancer in laboratory animals.
