TOXIC FOOD ADDITIVES

 

ASPARTAME:  An artificial sweetener (NutraSweet and Equal are some brand names).  Causes headaches, dizziness, nausea, respiratory problems, itching and hives.  The University of Arizona says it causes seizures in humans.  The University of Washington says it causes brain tumors in humans.

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 United States because of diethylstilbestrol contamination.

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 the United States on strawberries and most imported fruits and vegetables.  Even more toxic are ALDRIN, DIELDRIN, ENDRIN and THIODAN.

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

“ASPARTAME, 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 WASHINGTON UNIVERSITY IN SAINT LOUIS.”  Science News,  June 28, 1986

“NUTRASWEET LINKED TO CONFUSION AND MEMORY LOSS.”

Health Facts,  March 1988

“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

“SENSITIVITY TO MONOSODIUM GLUTAMATE CAN CAUSE HEADACHE, FLUSHING AND INTESTINAL UPSET.”  British Medical Journal,  April 25, 1998

“THE UNITED 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 Washington Post,  February 11, 2000

“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 UNITED KINGDOM, NORWAY AND SWITZERLAND.  THE FDA [FOOD AND DRUG ADMINISTRATION] BEGAN TESTING FOOD PRODUCTS AND PRELIMINARY RESULTS INDICATE ACRYLAMIDE IS PRESENT IN HIGH LEVELS IN THE UNITED STATES AS WELL.”  United Press International Science & Technology Desk,  September 27, 2002

“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

THAILAND’S EDUCATION MINISTRY HAS DECIDED THAT THE FLAVOR ENHANCER MONOSODIUM GLUTAMATE COULD BE DANGEROUS TO CHILDREN AND HAS BANNED ITS USE IN SCHOOL MEALS.”

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 HOPE NATIONAL MEDICAL CENTER [DISCOVER THAT] THE COMPOUND [ACRYLAMIDE] MAY CAUSE DNA WITHIN THE BODY TO MUTATE, INCREASING A PERSON’S RISK OF NOT JUST CANCER BUT OTHER ILLNESSES AS WELL.”  Men’s Health,  October 2003

“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
