In 1985 Dr. Adrian Gross told congress that because aspartame was found capable of causing brain tumors the FDA should not have been able to set an “allowable” daily intake of the substance at any level. His last words to congress were “if the FDA violates its own law, who is left to protect the public?”
Today we will take a lovely stroll through the chemical rich, caca-storm that is the world of Processed Foods. A startling truth for the uninitiated is that the population has allowed our foods to be drugged and poisoned halfway into oblivion, but hey, at least a sick population is good for business right? For those of us who have yet to understand the truth about the FDA, Project Paperclip, Big Pharma and the treat-instead-of-cure-style, slow-kill eugenic agenda I highly recommend delving into those horrific yet pertinent topics at some point when you feel ready to do the actual homework.
There are all kinds of harmful things corporations sneak into our food supply, and this isn’t an issue that is specific to the present either. In 1940’ and 1950’s there was a substance known as DDT that was used to kill bugs that spread malaria and typhus. DDT, or dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane, was a synthetic pesticide that was eventually deemed harmful as late as 1993. Another harmful substance propagated by the FDA was Thalidomide, which was used commercially to combat morning sickness but lead to children being born without limbs among other birth anomalies.
Today we have no shortage of harmful chemicals in our food supply, a few of the most commonly found are listed and explained below.
Potassium Sorbate: Found in just about anything, potassium sorbate is one of those silent killers we willing ingest on a daily basis. It is not only recommended that people avoid this chemical, it is a necessity that we eliminate it from the public diet. The industry and its paid “scientists” will parrot endless myths about how safe it is but the truth comes from food and toxicology reports calling the drug a carcinogen, showing positive mutation results in the cells of mammals. Other studies have shown broad systemic and toxic effects on reproductive organs in animals.
Sulfur Dioxide: Sulfur additives are toxic, in the US the FDA has permitted its use on raw fruits and vegetables. Adverse reactions include bronchial problems especially for those who suffer from asthma or hypotension. Sulfur Dioxide also destroy vitamins b1 and e and is not recommended for children. It is found in beer, wine, dried fruit, soft drinks, cordials, juices and many potato products.
Sodium Nitrate: Used as a preservative (red flag) as well as for “coloring and “flavoring” in bacon, hot dogs, lunch meat and pretty much all processed meats. Though it may sound harmless it is actually highly carcinogenic once it enters the digestive system where it forms a variety of nitrosamine compounds which enter the bloodstream and wreak havoc on internal organs. The USDA actually tried to ban this one in the 70’s but was vetoed by food manufacturers who complained that there was “no alternative” to preserving packaged meats.
These are just a few of the things you should consider keeping an eye out for when looking at the ingredients on the back of your favorite processed snacks or gas station beverages. The list goes on and on and includes:
- Monosodium glutamate (msg)
- High fructose corn syrup
- Butylated Hydroxyanisole (BHA)
- Butylated Hydroxytoluene (BHT)
- Food Dyes
- Trans Fat
