You Are What You Eat Including Food Additives And Chemicals…

Guest article, by ‘NRP’…

You ARE what you EAT.

We use approximately 275 chemical food “additives” in this country:

The short list:
Azodicarbonamide, calcium carbonate, calcium sulfate, ammonium sulfate, DATEM, sodium stearoyl lactylate, potassium iodate, ascorbic acid, Tartrazine, Butylated hydroxyanisole (BHA), butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT), Propyl gallate, Sodium nitrite, TBHQ (tert-Butylhydroquinone), Silicon dioxide, silica and calcium silicate, Triacetin (glycerol triacetate), Potassium Bromate, METHYLCYCLOPROPENE, ASPARTAME, ASTAXANTHIN, BENZOIC ACID/SODIUM BENZOATE, CANTHAXANTHIN, MONOSODIUM GLUTAMATE (MSG), OLESTRA, 8-methyl-N-vannillyl-6-nonenamide, Dihydrogen Monoxide

 
We also use roughly 700 million to 1.2 billion pounds of pesticides per year in this country, and some of that DOES get into our foods.

The short list:
Acetamiprid, Azadirachtin, Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt), Bifenthrin, Bordeaux mixture, Captan, Carbaryl, Sevin, Bonide, Chlorothalonil, Daconil, Bonide Fungonil, CydX, Virusoft, Carpovirusine, Copper, Botanigard, Naturalis (Beauveria bassiana), Entomopathogenic nematodes, Scanmask (Steinernema carpocapsae), Cruiser (Heterorhabditis bacteriophora), Gamma-cyholothrin, SunSpray, Ultrafine, Orchex, Bonide All Season Spray Oil, Ortho Volck, High Yield Dormant Spray, Fertilome Scalecide, Bayer Advanced Garden Tree and Shrub Insect Control (apple and pear only), Bayer Advanced Fruit, Citrus, and Vegetable Insect Control, Ortho Max Tree and Shrub Insect Control, Bonide Systemic Insect Spray (neonicotinoid; caution label), Kaolin clay, Ortho Max Malathion, High Yield Malathion, Malathion (organophosphate; caution label), Neem oil, Permethrin, Phosphoric Acid, Potassium bicarbonate, Propiconazole, Pyrethrin, Pyrethrum, Spinosad, Streptomycin,

 
I have often heard it said,
“If Grandma could not pronounce it, do NOT eat it”.

How true this is in a day and age we are all thinking of health; yet eat foods that are, in my opinion, laced with poisons.


 

Chemical additives and Pesticides are dangerous and I believe killing us all.

100% of the chemicals listed above are “approved” by the FDA.gov; 100% of the same chemicals are known to cause some sorts of ill/deadly effects to Humans if consumed to an excess, but who is it that sets that “excess”? The same .gov that approves their use?

As we look at the world as we know it and strive to be better prepared, if you’re eating poisons and/or constantly immersed in chemicals (clothing, bathing, oral care, etc.) how can one expect to be “Healthy”? How can one expect to survive the battle if you’re weakened by chemical induced foods?

I will admit chemicals (and food modification, GMO’s) have increased the “amount” of foods, BUT they are also lowering the “quality” of the same foods. This being the case, we end up taking dozens of “pills” to supplement the lack of nutrition in foods that are chemically enhanced.

One should ask themselves,
Why is it that “organic” foods cost 25-50% more that chemical raised foods?
Why are we seeing such an increase of illnesses and Cancers?
Why are people seemingly losing their ability to think clearly?
Why are people becoming more and more violent?
Any of this have to do with the food?

What’s in your food?

Ken adds: Apparently many food additives are not even required to be listed on the ingredients list if they don’t meet a pre-determined threshold compared to what’s in the rest of the food. Still, look at the ingredients list anyway.

Did you know that ‘the order’ of the listed ingredients are the order from ‘most’ to ‘least’? That knowledge helps to determine how much of something (relatively) is part of the food.

Have you noticed that most grocery store bought tomatoes just don’t taste much like tomatoes anymore? Yuk! That’s why I love homegrown tomatoes and all other homegrown vegetables. They are SO much better, and better for you.

Almost all foods today are ‘processed’. Mass agriculture, mass importation and distribution from other countries, mass pesticides, mass chemicals and additives, are all part of the food chain. It sure is nicer to have your own food chain, and knowing where it came from and how it was grown or raised…

How are the vegetables, etc.. in your grocery store? Do they taste ‘normal’ to you?
