They ARE Trying To KILL US!!!

I think someone out there is trying to make my head explode.  I’m finding all this information on food that just scares the hell out of me.  It’s making me really mad.

Tonight after dinner I was scanning the headlines on Yahoo.  Just trying to keep up with what’s going on in the world and all.  So I read this one:  Top 10 Scariest Food Additives.  This article is all about very common food additives and how they aren’t at all good for us.

They range from Ammonium Sulfate which seems benign.  So far they haven’t found it to be harmful though it has fallen under suspicion.  People its a fertilizer and fire retardant.  Somehow, that just doesn’t seem like it would be the best thing to be putting in our bodies.

In the middle of the pack are the asthma inducers like Sulfites and Azodicarbonamide.  While not the most dangerous of them, unless you’re an asthma sufferer.  If they can induce an asthma attack in those sensitive to them, just what kind of impact can they have on people with healthy lungs?  Can they actually cause some airway restriction?  And what about those people who don’t have asthma, but do have diminished lung function for other reasons?

Also in the middle is Olestra.  Ok, diarrhea might not be the worst thing.  Embarrassing, yes.  By itself not really deadly unless it becomes severe and is accompanied with dehydration.  More important to know about it is that it is thought to block absorption of fat soluble vitamins.  Since it can’t be broken down in the body and passes straight through the intestines, it carries the nutrients through your system without releasing them for use in the body.  So you end up malnourished.  And recent studies are leading to the conclusion that it can cause you to gain weight.

Lastly, there are the killers.  Cancer, heart disease, and stroke are all known as possible outcomes of ingesting these.   From the caramel coloring that’s in pretty much everything to Saccharin which is a cheap, zero calorie, sweetener.  Cancer is the danger of using these.  Partially Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil is know well to clog arteries which would lead to heart attack or stroke.

The common thread among all these though is; each and everyone of them is banned in other countries but not the United States.  No, here the FDA tells us that they’re all perfectly safe.  And we all know that the US government would never lie to the American people.

The only way we’re going to get them to stop poisoning us is to vote with our wallets.  Read the ingredient labels, and just don’t buy any product that has any of these additives in them.    Maybe then the food companies would take notice and stop putting them in our food.  Read people.  Educate yourselves.  Then start asking questions of yourselves, your food providers and your congressmen.  Make them know you won’t hold still for them trying to kill us all.
