Some Toxic Chemicals in “Food” you Eat

inkiesI hate to use the word conspiracy but I just can’t come up with a better term to describe what is happening to cause the poor health epidemic in the USA.
The media tells us that we are lazy junk food guzzling idiots, but they will never report that their advertisers are causing this epidemic by what they put into so called “food” Here are examples of what is going on with the prepared food supply.
Coke-cola and has to be at the top of the list but they are probably not the worst. A can of Coke (12 fl ounces/355 ml) has 39 grams of carbohydrates (all from sugar, approximately 10 teaspoons), 50 mg of sodium, 0 grams fat, 0 grams potassium, and 140 calories. I got these figures from Wikipedia but they are wrong on one thing. Coke and soft drink manufactures rarely use sugar; they use High Fructose Corn Syrup almost exclusively, which is worse than sugar for causing obesity.
I do want you to observe that 50 mg of sodium that is in Coke. What does sodium mean? SALT! Why is salt put into soft drinks, to make you thirstier and make you drink more soft drinks? This is the conspiracy.
Why is there so much high fructose corn syrup? To cover up the taste of salt! What was New Coke (the marketing ploy that failed)? Increased salt and more HFCS! If coke had never announced the plot to change the formula and if they had changed the formula gradually, no one would have ever known what they had done.
I got the following from www.mercola.com and he got it from Organic Authority.
This concerns McDonalds and their McNuggets that you might think are chicken but only 50 percent of each McNugget is actually chicken.
I got this information from www.mercola.com and he got his information from Organic Authority.
Do you put dimethylpolysiloxane, an anti-foaming agent made of silicone, in your chicken dishes?
How about tertiary butylhydroquinone (TBHQ), a chemical preservative so deadly that just five grams can kill you?
These are just two of the ingredients in a McDonalds Chicken McNugget. Only 50 percent of a McNugget is actually chicken. The other 50 percent includes corn derivatives, sugars, leavening agents and completely synthetic ingredients.
Organic Authority helpfully transcribed the full ingredients list provided by McDonalds:
“White boneless chicken, water, food starch-modified, salt, seasoning (autolyzed yeast extract, salt, wheat starch, natural flavoring (botanical source), safflower oil, dextrose, citric acid, rosemary), sodium phosphates, seasoning (canola oil, mono- and diglycerides, extractives of rosemary).
Battered and breaded with: water, enriched flour (bleached wheat flour, niacin, reduced iron, thiamin mononitrate, riboflavin, folic acid), yellow corn flour, food starch-modified, salt, leavening (baking soda, sodium acid pyrophosphate, sodium aluminum phosphate, monocalcium phosphate, calcium lactate), spices, wheat starch, whey, corn starch.
Prepared in vegetable oil (Canola oil, corn oil, soybean oil, hydrogenated soybean oil with TBHQ and citric acid added to preserve freshness). Dimethylpolysiloxane added as an antifoaming agent.”
All of the above is bad but just the vegetable oils (Canola, corn oil, soybean oil, hydrogenated soybean oil) are terrible because these oils are all genetically engineered and they are all trans fatty acids. This is why all chicken prepared in grocery stores and fast food chicken outlets is unhealthy to eat under any circumstances.
How about desert? How about a Twinkie? Here is a report that I got from the internet. Actually I have read the book but this is a short summary of the book by the author.

The Twinkie: Ingredients Revealed
By: Kate Thorp (View Profile)
Five ingredients come from rocks.
This got my attention. However, it only got worse when I discovered that the ingredients come from phosphate mines in Idaho, gypsum mines in Oklahoma, and oil fields in China. Okay, so now I was wondering if I was watching a real news story—come to find out, I was.
The Twinkie, which was created during the Depression, contains thirty-nine ingredients. One of those ingredients is a preservative, sorbic acid. Sorbic acid is an ingredient I see on many packages, and I have never thought twice about it. But author Steve Ettlinger did. He found that sorbic acid is actually derived from natural gas.
If that isn’t shocking enough, he goes on to talk about other ingredients like cellulose gum, Polysorbate 60, and calcium sulfate. Apparently, these ingredients are also used in sheet rock, shampoo, and rocket fuel. No wonder Twinkies make kids run around like crazy and have even been used as a defense for murder!
Mr. Ettlinger also found that the vitamins, artificial colors, and flavorings in Twinkies come from petroleum.
I started to wonder how this tasty treat made from gas and rocks can be so light and airy. In comes Mr. Ettlinger again. Apparently, it’s limestone that makes Twinkies light. And that tasty cream center—it’s got to be milk, right? No. It’s made of shortening; there is absolutely no cream in the cream.
I have to say I was curious to know what Hostess, the makers of the Twinkie, thought about Mr. Ettlinger’s claims. Well, here’s the quote that ran in my newscast:
Deconstructing the Twinkie is like trying to deconstruct the universe. We think the millions of people … would agree that Twinkies just taste great.—David Leavitt, Vice President Snack Marketing at Hostess.
The news story was inspired by Steve Ettlinger’s new book, Twinkie Deconstructed. Ettlinger uses the Twinkie to demonstrate where our processed food ingredients come from. Since the Twinkie is the product leader—yes, it’s a product and apparently, barely a food—it served as the perfect tool to show consumers what goes into our food.
The above are three “foods” that unsuspecting people consume that cause poor health.
The manufactures of these “foods” do not want you to know what their chemicals are doing to cause you to suffer poor health. The above products cause colds and flu in all age groups because they compromise your immune system. The colds and flu problems are all on the “short run” but the more insidious problems are on the long run. The long run problems are heart disease, stroke, cancer, obesity, diabetes and infections from mycoplasmas that cause neuro-degenerative and degenerative diseases like ALS, MS, chronic fatigue syndrome, Crohn’s disease, fibromyalgia, and many other chronic diseases.
You might say “I don’t care cause you have to die of something” and that is your right to be stupid but you deserve to know what is causing people to be sick and die before their time. You need to know that drug corporations, doctors, hospitals, pharmacies, food manufactures, agriculture producers, chemical corporations, don’t want you to be healthy so they can get “fat” off your misfortune.
Everyone has the right to make a choice but your government and corporations conspire to keep you in the dark about “food” knowing that you will suffer yourself or through a family member of friend.
My job as a reporter and author is to inform the public about what is wrong in their food supply so that you can make an intelligent choice with the food you eat.
It is your right to do and eat as you wish (smoking, toxic food, etc.), but it should be my right to eat healthy, be informed, and not be taxed to pay for you heart attack, cancer, high blood pressure, obesity, diabetes, and chronic diseases that are preventable.
Instead of the Obama “sick care” program that is not right or fair, people should pay a tax on all processed “foods”, cigarettes, etc. with the money going into a special fund to provide for illness treatment from allopathic doctors.
Doctors should also be paid more to help you be healthy instead of being rewarded for getting you on drugs and not helping you be well.
