False Food Part Two

In 2010 it was found that Mcnuggets contain dimethylpolysiloxane, an anti-foaming agent used in Silly Putty. Since no one I know would consider a Silly Putty chemical to be edible I can't help but to wonder what such an agent would be doing in something being sold as "food". If you think I'm making this up simple google: McNuggets 'contain SILLY PUTTY chemical'

Can foods and others packaged in plastic contain a Bisphenol A (BPA) - a synthetic estrogen that has been linked to breast cancer, and other ailments ranging from reproductive problems to heart disease, diabetes, and obesity. Canned tomatoes are therefore rendered a landmine of disease waiting to happen to the unsuspecting consumer. A chemicals called perfluorooctanoic acid that has been linked to infertility in humans is found in the lining of your microwave popcorn bag. Once the popcorn is heated the poison is transferred to the popcorn. The old American staple, the potato has been inundated with herbicides, pesticides and fungicides. The potato is no good unless it is grown the way all things were intended to grow - organically. This may seem an exaggeration to some when I say any "food" that is processed is a potential poison but that does not change the fact. I dont have to site the statistics on the growing epidemic of heart disease, cancers, obesity and diabetes. Among the very young many many cases of autism and mental maladies and the number increases everyday. Where did these new disease come from? I submit to you my fellow consumer that the answer to that riddle lies in our new "foods".

Americans so love their processed foods that they now turn their noses up at good old fashioned home cooking and fresh fruits and vegetables. People enjoy ground beef coming from three different cows in three different countries to make one cheese burger. Food is left to factories and corporations and the mind spirit and body of human suffer as a consequence. Does anyone care about what they are eating? Obviously not the corporation - obviously not us. Just looking at the convenience of quick foods(microwave and eat) and the much cheaper prices when compared to real food we can see why some consumers opt for the processed poisons. But a poison is a poison and we will eventually have to pay the piper for eating from his table.

It is not as hard as to eat healthier natural foods as some people would have you believe. You can start by eliminating from your diet anything with paragraph of words you cannot pronounce as ingredients. You can get back to making your own meals and purchasing food from your local small business instead of large supermarkets. You can invest in your health by eating organic foods. Yes organic foods are more expensive but do you really need the new 64 inch flat screen and 1200 cable channels?

Remember: your health is your wealth so eat rich.

I agree with every thing you have to say but with 77 million Americans at pre-diabetes or full on diabetes and with 75 million Americans with heart disease, I fear it may be too late. Corporations and manufactures have a big say in what poison people get fed. Unless the health agency's can show governments that the cost in lost productivity outweighs the tax revenue gained from manufactures as I'm 100% sure it would, nothing will be done. creatinglifestyle my blog is about healthy foods.
