TOXIC FOOD ADDITIVES
ASPARTAME: An artificial sweetener (NutraSweet and Equal are
some brand names). Causes headaches,
dizziness, nausea, respiratory problems, itching and hives. The
BUTTER YELLOW: An artificial coloring. Causes cancer in test animals.
CARRAGEENAN: A thickening agent. Causes ulcers in guinea pigs.
DIETHYLSTILBESTROL (DES): Used to fatten steers. Causes cancer in test animals. Many countries do not permit the importation
of beef from the
HERBICIDES: Used to destroy weeds and undergrowth. Cause miscarriages, chromosome damage, congenital deformities and birth defects in humans. The National Cancer Institute classifies herbicides as carcinogens.
ISOMALT: A sugar substitute. Causes gastrointestinal symptoms, ranging from mild discomfort to severe diarrhea.
MALTITOL: A sugar substitute. Causes gastrointestinal symptoms, ranging from mild discomfort to severe diarrhea.
MANNITOL: A sugar substitute. Causes gastrointestinal symptoms, ranging from mild discomfort to severe diarrhea.
MONOSODIUM GLUTAMATE (MSG): A flavor enhancer. (Accent is a brand name). Produces brain lesions in newborn rats. In humans, it causes headaches, asthma, chest pain, heart palpitations, burning sensation, swelling stomachs, dizziness, weakness and excessive sleeping; and to immature infants, irreversible brain damage. There are food additives that have hidden sources of monosodium glutamate. MSG is always contained in hydrolyzed protein or hydrolyzed vegetable protein; and can be contained in autolyzed yeast, sodium caseinate and natural flavor(s) or natural flavoring(s).
NITRATES: Artificial color enhancers and chemical fertilizers. Destroy vitamins A and E and cause cancer in mice. By being changed into nitrites within the gastrointestinal tract, have caused the deaths of infants by reacting with the red color in blood cells and preventing them from carrying oxygen. By being changed into nitrosamines in the body, can produce cancers in many organs of a wide variety of species. As fertilizers, nitrates destroy or decrease the vitamin C content of plants.
PESTICIDES: DICHLORODIPHENYLTRICHLOROETHANE (DDT) A powerful
insecticide. It is continuously used in
RED DYE NUMBER ONE: An artificial coloring. Causes cancer in test animals.
SACCHARIN: An artificial sweetener. Causes tumors in test animals.
SORBITOL: A sugar substitute. Causes gastrointestinal symptoms, ranging from mild discomfort to severe diarrhea.
SULFITES: Artificial preservatives. Causes headaches, difficulty breathing, nausea and hives.
XYLITOL: A sugar substitute. Causes gastrointestinal symptoms, ranging from mild discomfort to severe diarrhea.
In order to extend the shelf life of their products, manufacturers remove or inactivate essential fatty acids by using chemical processes that render their food products harmful to the body. These harmful fats go by a number of names, including “hydrogenated”, “partially hydrogenated” and even “polyunsaturated”.
“THE FOOD AND DRUG ADMINISTRATION [FDA] HAS DECIDED TO ALLOW TINY AMOUNTS OF CANCER‑CAUSING SUBSTANCES IN FOOD.”
Discover, January 1986
THE LOW‑CALORIE SUGAR SUBSTITUTE MARKETED AS NUTRASWEET AND EQUAL, CAN CAUSE
SKIN HIVES AND SWELLING OF THROAT TISSUE, ACCORDING TO A MEDICAL RESEARCHER AT
“NUTRASWEET LINKED TO CONFUSION AND MEMORY LOSS.”
“STUDIES CONDUCTED BY G. D. SEARLE, THE CREATOR OF NUTRASWEET, AND SUBMITTED TO THE FDA [FOOD AND DRUG ADMINISTRATION] SHOW THAT ASPARTAME MAY INDUCE BRAIN TUMORS IN RATS. LATER MEDICAL STUDIES AND REPORTS TO THE CENTERS FOR DISEASE CONTROL SUGGEST THAT ASPARTAME MAY CAUSE A HOST OF SIDE EFFECTS IN HUMANS RANGING FROM HEADACHES TO SEIZURES. FURTHER, RECENT RESEARCH INTO DIET AND BRAIN CHEMISTRY INDICATES THAT ASPARTAME DOES NOTHING TO CONTROL WEIGHT; AND, IN FACT, MAY ACTUALLY HEIGHTEN APPETITE.” Technology Review, January 1990
“METHODS FOR PREVENTING HEADACHES INCLUDE EATING AT LEAST EVERY SIX HOURS AND AVOIDING FOODS CONTAINING AMINES, MONOSODIUM GLUTAMATE AND ASPARTAME.”
Ladies Home Journal, September 1996
“MSG [MONOSODIUM GLUTAMATE] HAS A REPUTATION AS A SERIOUS ALLERGEN THAT CAN CAUSE HEADACHES AND INTESTINAL PROBLEMS.”
Maclean’s, October 27, 1997
TO MONOSODIUM GLUTAMATE CAN CAUSE HEADACHE,
STATES WILL SOON RESUME TESTING MEAT FOR THE ILLEGAL HORMONE DES [DIETHYLSTILBESTROL] AFTER SWISS HEALTH INSPECTORS REPORTED FINDING TRACES OF IT IN
IMPORTED AMERICAN BEEF.” The
“CAN DIET THERAPY RELIEVE FIBROMYALGIA? IN A SERIES OF CASE STUDIES, FLORIDA RESEARCHERS REPORTED DRAMATIC IMPROVEMENT IN PATIENTS WHO ELIMINATED MSG [MONOSODIUM GLUTAMATE], ASPARTAME, FOOD ADDITIVES, AND/OR A VARIETY OF ALLERGENS.”
Contemporary OB/GYN, August 2001
“SWEDISH SCIENTIST WERE THE FIRST TO
DISCOVER THAT ACRYLAMIDE, A SUBSTANCE KNOWN TO CAUSE BREAST, UTERINE AND
TESTICULAR CANCER IN ANIMALS, IS PRESENT IN HIGH LEVELS IN STARCHED‑BASED
FOODS COOKED AT HIGH TEMPERATURES. THE
CHEMICAL HAS BEEN FOUND IN CHIPS, FRENCH FRIES, BREAD, CEREALS AND OTHER
PROCESSED FOODS. THE FINDINGS HAVE BEEN
CONFIRMED IN THE
“ASPARTAME IS AN ARTIFICIAL SWEETNER THAT CAN LEAD TO CHRONIC DEGENERATIVE ILLNESSES OR ACUTE HEALTH PROBLEMS. IT DESTROYS NEURONS (NERVE CELLS) AND CAN CONTRIBUTE TO BRAIN AND NERVOUS SYSTEM DISORDERS. IF YOU VALUE YOUR EYESIGHT, STOP USING ASPARTAME. EATING LARGE QUANTITIES CAN LEAD TO DEGENERATIVE BRAIN DISORDERS SUCH AS ALZHEIMER’S, PARKINSON’S, HUNTINGTON’S AND ALS [AMYOTROPHIC LATERAL SCLEROSIS].”
Women’s Health Letter, November 2002
Food Chemical News, March 17, 2003
“IN SEVERAL STUDIES, ANIMALS GIVEN SPLENDA EXPERIENCED SIDE EFFECTS LIKE GASTROINTESTINAL DISTURBANCES. IN FACT, ONE STUDY FOUND THAT HIGH DOSES OF SPLENDA IN A GROUP OF ABOUT EIGHTEEN PREGNANT RABBITS CAUSED SEVERE GASTROINTESTINAL SIDE EFFECTS THAT LED TO TWO MATERNAL DEATHS AND FOUR MISCARRIAGES.”
Natural Health, September 2003
“RESEARCHERS AT CITY OF
“A NEW STUDY HAS FOUND THAT POTATOES THAT ARE IMMERSED IN HOT WATER BEFORE FRYING HAVE THEIR ACRYLAMIDE CONTENT REDUCED…. A 40-MINUTE SOAK IN 70ºC [158ºF] WATER REDUCED ACRYLAMIDE LEVELS BY FULLY 90%.” just-food.com, February 11, 2004
