Toxic Agents

toxic agentsI got this information from Naturalnews.com, and it was a little disturbing, even to me!

“70,000 food additives approved by the FDA – What you don’t know will hurt you”

70,000!!  Added to FOOD?!  Why would real food  need any additives?  This is definitely a problem, A BIG PROBLEM!

The food industry, like so many others, is totally out of control!  It’s all about the bottom line ($).  Why do they add these ingredients?  Well, they will usually say it’s a preservative, to prevent spoiling and make the product last longer (FOREVER) on the shelves.  But they pay NO ATTENTION to what affect these toxic chemicals have on the human body!  And they usually camouflage the real names of these ingredients, because they don’t want to scare the public and reduce their $ales!

Here is a brief list of some of the more popular ingredients and what they are sourced from:

Toxic Agent Hit List

Adrenaline – Adrenal glands of hogs, cattle and sheep. Common in medicine.

Albumin – Made from blood, eggs, cow’s milk or vegetables. Often used to add texture or to thicken food — baked goods, cakes, cookies, pastries, candies and cosmetics (also in vaccines).

Ambergris – Whale intestines, synthetic or vegetable. Check perfumes for this.

Amylase – Fungal, bacterial, animal (pig).

Carmine (Cochineal or Carminic Acid) – Red coloring made from insects (e.g.: female beetles). Very common in candies, frozen pops, ice cream, fruit fillings, yogurt, pudding and bottled juices.

Clarifying Agent – Animal-based (egg, gelatin, fish bladder). Used to make liquids clear.

Dextrose – (GMO corn sugar) Animal bones may be used to filter it.

Diglyceride – Animal (cow or hog), vegetable. Baked goods, peanut butter, chewing gum, whipped topping, sweets, drinks, ice creams and shortening.

Dough Conditioner – Glyceryl monostearate, potassium bromate, locust (carob) bean gum, monocalcium sulfate, benzoyl peroxide and calcium sulfate. Watch out for azodicarbonamide and anti-foaming agents also.

Emulsifier – Animal (cow, hog, eggs, milk), vegetable, synthetic. In most processed foods. Lecithin, mono- and diglycerides, calcium stearoyl, polysorbate and monostearate.

Folic Acid (Pteroylglutamic Acid, Folacin) – Usually synthetic or fungal.

Fat – Animal (cow or hog, tallow and lard).

Flavor enhancer – Animal (meat or fish), vegetable. Monosodium glutamate, disodium guanylate, disodium inosiante and soy sauce (90% of soy is GMO).

Lipase – Enzyme from the tongue and stomach of animals (like hogs and cows), fungal. Common in cheese, ice cream and margarine.

Modified Starch – Corn that has been altered in laboratories to contain pesticide. All GMO corn is cancer-causing.

MSG – Monosodium glutamate: Concentrated irradiated salt. Watch out for maltodextrin, autolyzed yeast extract and hydrolized soy protein, all food criminal “cousins” of MSG.

Of course, never consume aspartame, sucralose or sorbitol, as these are synthetic sweeteners and concocted in a laboratory. It’s time to “about face” this onslaught of bad health that really comes from bad choices. Don’t spend another dollar on the food agents that breed cellular disease. Be the smartest shopper you know!

Another reason not to eat PROCESSED FOOD.  No man-made, only GOD-made!

Sweet Poison

sugar

By now everyone knows that SUGAR is bad for you.  Well, maybe not everyone!  You see, the majority of the population has been under the spell of the propaganda being spewed forth about how sugar is really not that bad.  “It’s Natural”! “Got a problem with artificial sweeteners?  We use pure natural sugar in our soft drinks!”  Different poisons , same affect – POOR HEALTH!

The charts below illustrate some of the toxic effects of sugar and the artificial sweetener aspartame:

If you read my post on CELLULAR INFLAMMATION you learned that there are three main things that cause it, toxins, bad fats and sugar.  Cellular inflammation (inflammation of the cell’s membrane) basically causes the cell not to function correctly and eventually die.

The inflamed membrane affects the cell’s ability to get rid of waste, absorb nutrients, and it’s receptors become blunted and non-functional, ultimately causing cell death.  Depending on which cells are affected, determines what disease you doctor will diagnose!  (That’s the reason the above charts seem to have unrelated diseases, but they all are affected by cells dying off).

An article written by Brad Chase in today’s NaturalNews.com explained a good three step process to break a sugar addiction!  First you make sure all your fruits a veggies are ORGANIC.  This produce tastes better, has a higher nutritional content, and contains slower-breaking-down complex carbs.  This is a key factor.

Secondly, if you consume pastries and cookies, you can substitute a whole grain bread and raw honey.  This is not the healthiest option, but it can help break the habit of the simple sugars in baked goods!  Again these are steps taken to break the addiction to sugar.

And thirdly if you are craving crunchy snacks use raw nuts and trail mixes as a substitute for chips, pretzels etc.  Nuts are a great source of nutrients, just make sure they are raw and organic.  If you want to “kick it up a notch”, soak the nuts and them dehydrate them.  This increases their digestibility and actually makes certain nuts taste better!  You can do a search for the simple process of doing this.

Before long, your “taste” for sugar will actually disappear, or be severely curtailed.  When I was a young man (about 100 years ago) I would put multiple (3 to 4) teaspoons of sugar in my coffee, now I drink it black!

You will also see many of your chronic symptoms disappear, and you will not get the annual bout with the flu!

And then you can take it further to other aspects of your environment, and deal with toxins and bad fats!
