Food Dangers

Irradiation. Contamination.

Genetic Modification. Pesticides



Per-chlorate dangers  Brownstein, Dr David  
Iodine - Why You Need It.  Why You Can't Live Without It
Perchlorate is in the family of halides (iodine/bromine/chlorine) and contains toxic chlorine. Much of America's municipal water, dairy products and lettuce contain it.  2 immediate remedies are to go organic and to make sure there is sufficient dietary iodine intake (seaweed/sea vegetables/fish/Iodoral tablets).

Food Expiration Dates

Julian Date: Starting with January 1 as #1 and ending with December 31 as 365, these numbers represent the consecutive (calendar year) days of the year. This numbering system is sometimes used on egg cartons to denote the day the eggs are packed. Fresh shell eggs can be stored in their cartons in the refrigerator for 4 to 5 weeks (2 months) beyond this date with insignificant quality loss.


Food Washes - "Compounds used to wash and destain shell eggs are potential food additives. Therefore, they are regulated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Unfortunately, FDA does not have any (public) published regulations dealing with shell egg cleaning and destaining compounds' (adverse side effects to humans ingesting the affected egg whites)."


Irradiation - Organic Spices  Are McCormick products irradiated?
McCormick says it does NOT irradiate its spices, but does not address imports which are required to be irradiated (sterilized).

Genetic Alteration

Genetically Engineered food in the news -
Genetically Engineered Foods: Are they safe?  You decide. 
Laura & Robin Ticciati share the generational dangers, often invisible. 
Howard Gordon, producer of X-Files says that this booklet is scarier than anything on the X-Files!

Genetic Engineering section in the Germs for Life chapter of The Secret Life of Germs by Philip M Tierno warns us that the cows are already out of the barn.  Genetic engineering began in 1971 with the Israeli break down of crude oil by bacteria. As of 2001 a fourth of US plants are genetically engineered, including half of soybeans and cotton plus a third of corn. So far sheep, mice and pigs have been cloned.  However, clones are prone to be an unstable, defective representation.

Genetically Engineered Food - Changing the Nature of Nature - Teitel, Martin & Wilson, Kimberly  Genetically engineered food is NOT engineered, but rather an unscientific alteration of food crossing species, doing harm not good. Unlabeled genetically altered food and food ingredients are being secretly slipped into our daily diet (groceries/ restaurants).  Currently the safest way to protect oneself is to (1) say grace before eating and (2) eat organic that is local and in season.
One can check these sites out for organic + rBGH free dairy food. 
Beware of baby formulas which contain genetically altered soybeans and/or rBGH milk.

High Fructose Corn Syrup

Double Danger of High Fructose Corn Syrup  May/June 2007 editorial 
Especially when diet is low in copper, sucrose (50% glucose + 50% fructose) or fructose alone, especially high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) may cause fatal organ abnormalities, bowel disease, insulin problems, heart and liver hypertrophy in males, infertility in females, and inadequate formation of elastin and collagen.  Read food/beverage packaging labels!  HGCS is often found in beer, bread, sodas, soups, pasta sauces, and even "health" products like protein bars and "natural" sodas!


Broer, Ted - Healthmasters co, Maximum Health #1
Excess soy (estrogenic) consumption during formative years can feminize your sons, perhaps permanently. Broer recommends goat's milk over formula (and breast milk over goat's milk).
Soybeans is an example of a food high in plant estrogen.  Over many generations very sensitive individuals can become sterile from eating estrogenic foods.  (Some men develop breast cancer...Plant pesticides such as DDT can act like an estrogen.)  Eating animals containing synthetic hormones also can contribute to many diseases in both the parent and the offspring, from the womb up. There are both man-made and natural compounds that act like hormones to trick/deceive/disrupt the human body. Colborn, Dumanoski, Meyers Our Stolen Future
Soy Protein Isolate is a food ingredient to avoid because in the processing hexane, a petroleum solvent similar to gas, is often used.  This toxic chemical residue often remains and is never listed on product label.


Botulism - 1/29/2015 - - Eviscerated definition, to remove the entrails from; disembowel:
Clostridium botulinum spores are more likely to be concentrated in the viscera than any other portion of the fish. Un-eviscerated fish have been linked to outbreaks of botulism poisoning.  Symptoms of botulism poisoning include blurred or double vision, general weakness, & poor reflexes, difficulty swallowing and respiratory paralysis."
