A Poisonous Sweetener

A Poisonous Sweetener

By Zachary Shahan, Green Options

According to a UK documentary, “Sweet Misery,” the National Cancer Institute identified a significant and impressive increase in brain cancer starting in about 1984. Why did brain cancer shoot up? Evidence suggests that it is because of artificial sweeteners such as those found in diet drinks and food.

Scientists noticed that in 1983 humans began consuming something never before consumed by humans — aspartame, a chemically created substance acting as a sugar alternative used in diet drinks, food, and even on the table in most restaurants (i.e. NutraSweet, Crystallite, Equal).

Increase in Aspartame, Increase in Brain Cancer

According to the documentary, in 1984, one year after its introduction, 6.9 million pounds of aspartame were consumed by Americans. In the next year, that number doubled. It continued increasing into the ’90s.  This spike in Aspartame consumption parallels the spike in brain cancer.

From 1984-1987, other cancers outside the brain basically remained the same or declined. However, brain cancer rates shot up.

Scientists confirmed that the increase in brain cancers is not due to technological advancements that made diagnosing brain cancer easier and it is not a result of changes in disease classifications.

Why is it suggested that aspartame has this neurological effect?

Scientists think that it is because 10 percent of the chemical substance, after ingestion, becomes free methyl alcohol (wood alcohol), which as one scientist in the film states, is a “real poison.” Another says, “the poisonous effect of methyl alcohol and its methyl esters are well-known.” Even small amounts of this poison can lead to blindness and death. The “miniscule” amounts in our common foods and drinks seem to sometimes lead to cancer and other neurological conditions such as multiple sclerosis.

Bottom line — maybe it’s time to cut artificial sweeteners out of your diet!

my Petition to get carrageenan removed from foods

Standard

At least some to start out with.  It’s heavily used and a long road, but the journey has to start somewhere.  Like the old Chinese proverb, a journey of 1000 miles begins with a single step.  This is so true.  You can sign the petition here.

Take carrageenan out of ice creams,

soymilk, coffee creamer

Sponsored by: Amy S., Concerned Consumers for Health

Target Companies: Starbuck’s, Purity, Mayfield, Nestle, Morningstar Foods, VitaSoy, Silk, WestSoy

Such a warm family scene.  Kids gathered around the table, laughing… it’s hot outside! Nothing like yummy ice cream to cool things off.  You dip out a cone-full for each of the kids… and what the heck, some for yourself too.  You relish the creamy flavor.

Imagine the shock when you later discover that all these years, among the uber-long list of ingredients… is one that has been linked to stomach lesions, colon cancer, breast cancer and Irritable Bowel Syndrome.  It has been lurking in your soy milk… your coffee creamers… your ice cream.  It has been documented that this ingredient has been used to *promote* cancer in lab animals for research.  Would you still want to ingest this ingredient?

The name of it is carrageenan (MSG related, incidentally).  My research and reading into this has shown the above statements are found consistently and continually in relation to this food additive.  It is found in the above products’ ice creams, many soy milks, and coffee creamers.  It’s derived from seaweed and I have been told that since it comes from a “natural ingredient” then it’s OK.  My research shows otherwise.  For one thing, it is not in its natural state.  It is a *derivation*… chemically processed.  For another… you know, I can think of a lot of “natural” stuff that is not good for us, or should not be ingested.  I bet you can too.  I can also think of many “FDA-approved” items that later got pulled off the shelves when it was found people were getting sick or dying from them.

Research for yourself. I have included some links below to get you started.  Then, if you are as angry as I was to find this out… please sign this petition, twitter it, get the word out.  Blog about it.  People need to know, and the companies need to know that we are not going to sit idly by and let them feed us things that they know are dangerous.  Once we are aware, it is up to us to avoid these foods, and look out for those who are still consuming them and just don’t know any better.

To the above stated companies:  Please take carrageenan out of your food products and find healthy, wholesome substitutes.  Many companies like Haagen Dazs, Breyer’s, and even Great Value Naturals (Wal Mart brand) do not use carrageenan in their products. In addition, we feel that soy milk, as a healthy beverage, should not have this additive in its list of ingredients.

We are Concerned Consumers for Health and we take our buying power seriously.  Please take this harmful food additive out of our coffee creamers, soy milks, and ice creams.  Otherwise, we will take our dollars elsewhere.

Hot Dogs Dangerous, Red Meats Can Increase Cancer Risk

Standard

I read the following article on Care2.com this morning.  Many of us already know this but it is worth reminding everyone.

On Wednesday, July 22, the Cancer Project, an affiliate of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM), a nonprofit organization that advocates vegetarianism and alternatives to animal research, filed a class-action consumer fraud lawsuit to require hot dog manufacturers to place warning labels on hot dog packages sold in New Jersey. The labels would read, “Warning: Consuming hot dogs and other processed meats increases the risk of cancer.”

According to PCRM’s press release, the lawsuit was filed on behalf of three New Jersey residents who purchased hot dogs without knowing that processed meats contribute to colorectal cancer.

Studies show that there is conclusive link between meat consumption and colorectal cancer.

The American Cancer Society even warns, “A diet that is high in red meats (beef, lamb, or liver) and processed meats such as hot dogs, bologna, and lunch meat can increase your colorectal cancer risk.”

Ice Cream – ingredient documented to GROW CANCER CELLS

Standard

Folks, is it any wonder we have the health problems we do today?

No matter where you turn,  it seems our food supply is being poisoned in one form or another.  Organic eating is the only fairly safe way and even some of those claims have to be checked out!

Apparently there is yet another DANGEROUS FOOD ADDITIVE, MSG-related, and guess what?  It’s documented to GROW CANCER CELLS.  And this is in OUR FOOD!!!  (Now ask me if I’m surprised… because I’m not.  Unfortunately.)  The name?  Carageenan. Remember that word.

“Carageenan, a widely used MSG related food additive  found in ice cream, dairy products, baked goods, yogurt, and some margarines, is used by researchers when they want to promote cancer growth in their experiments.  Carageenan is documented to actually grow cancer cells, and manufacturers are putting it in our food!”  http://www.vitalearth.org/MSG.html

FDA… what is it you actually do behind those desks all day?  Because it certainly can’t be safeguarding our food!!!!!

1300 Girls Harmed by HPV Vaccines in UK;

Bizarre Side Effects Like Paralysis and Epilepsy

David Gutierrez
NaturalNews
Tuesday, May 19, 2009

More than 1,300 girls in the United Kingdom have experienced negative reactions to the government-mandated Cervarix vaccine for the human papillomavirus (HPV), according to adverse events reports collected from doctors by the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA).

“When they introduced this new vaccine, we had major concerns about its safety,” said Jackie Fletcher of Jabs, a support group for those negatively affected by vaccines. “The current statistics detailing adverse reactions — including cases of epilepsy and convulsions — bears out that we were right to be concerned.”

Cervarix, manufactured by GlaxoSmithKline, inoculates patients against strains 16 and 18 of HPV, which are believed to be responsible for 70 percent of cervical cancer cases. The British government began a program to vaccinate all secondary school girls in September 2008, and 700,000 have received the injections so far. The government’s plan is to have all girls under the age of 18 vaccinated by 2011.

Critics have objected, however, that the government based its decision on studies of women under the age of 26, rather than studies conducted on school-age girls. In addition, while the vaccine has been shown to prevent against HPV infection in the short term, there is no evidence of its long-term efficacy or that it actually lowers cancer rates.

The MHRA reports show a total of 2,891 adverse events reported in 1,340 girls. The majority were minor and short-lived problems, such as swelling, rashes, pain or mild allergies to the vaccine. A number of cases were more severe, however, including 20 cases of blurred vision, four cases of convulsions, one case of seizures and one epileptic fit. Five cases of partial paralysis were reported, including Bell’s palsy (face), Guillain-Barre syndrome (legs), hyopaesthesia (loss of sense of touch) and hemiparesis (severe weakening or paralysis of half the body).

“The government needs to look at the future of this program given the number of side-effects coming through,” Fletcher said.

Do You Know What’s in Your Child’s Vaccinations?

Standard

If you don’t… and going along with the crowd is just fine with you… you might want to take a deeper look into things.

One such link breaks it down easily and simply, in answer to the question “Just what’s in those vaccinations, anyway?” http://www.vaccination.inoz.com/ingredie.html Reading this… you would be shocked.  And no… not all mercury has been removed.

If you are a concerned parent, you owe it to your child to know BOTH SIDES of the vaccine story, not just the one we are hand-fed.  We all know the pro-vax side… but you owe it to your child, your family, to be informed on *both* sides… particularly when we start hearing rumors of mandatory vaccinations. Sometimes we need to stand and do our own research… instead of doing something “just because everyone else is doing it.” Don’t we teach our kids NOT to do that? “Well if everybody else was jumping off a bridge, would you do it too?”  This is a prime example. Practice what we teach and preach.

Get educated.  Anyone who does not take this situation seriously… I would simply (and sadly) say they are uninformed, in my opinion, and need to get informed – very quickly. Sticking your head in the sand, like an ostrich, does not make a problem go away. A very good place to start learning is with this Question and Answer link at the Vaccination Liberation Organization. Also I have links posted at the bottom for you to start doing your own research from, if you feel you would like to do so.

The following is taken from an article, written by Shauna Wood and breaks down the ingredients by vaccine, very helpful.  I will place additional article links at the end of this post.

The following is taken from a very interesting article found at Natural News:  http://www.naturalnews.com/022617.html

Why Are We Vaccinating Against Childhood Diseases?


This is the multi-billion dollar question. Parents usually have their children vaccinated because the idea of not doing it simply doesn’t occur. We have been thoroughly indoctrinated with the concept of “deadly” childhood diseases. Yet, there is no documentation showing that death rates from these diseases have been improved by vaccinations. As the data from the AMA itself shows, there is every reason to believe that these vaccinations are not effective, that we need to look to other reasons for the decrease in these disease deaths.

Even more significantly, the AMA’s own data shows a possible link between an increase in death coinciding with vaccinations. Whether this is a cause-and-effect link is not proven at this time. However, with the AMA’s record of not looking into the effects of vaccinations – of not even requiring that after-effects be reported – it’s clear that the allopathic (standard) medical system is not going to sort this out. That leaves us with no option but to assume the worst – that childhood vaccinations not only do little or no good, but they may be doing great harm.

The question, of course, is “Why?” As with any corporate-controlled business (and make no mistake, the medical industry is big business) the answer always goes back to the same thing: money. Filthy lucre. There are millions and billions of dollars, pounds, euros, and other currencies to be made by both the pharmaceutical firms and the doctors themselves.

What Can Explain the Reduction in Infectious Disease Rates?

Since it’s obvious from the AMA’s own documentation that vaccinations have little or no effect on the outcome of infectious disease deaths, then there must be other issues at play. If one looks at the history of the 20th century in the U.S. then it isn’t too difficult to see what has changed. This was the era of improved overall hygiene and adequate food.

It was when clean and abundant water became the norm. It was when systems to clean wastes from public water supplies became standard. It was when septic and sewer systems to separate people from disease-producing wastes were introduced. It was a time of relative plenty, when people grew larger because of adequate food. In other words, it was a time of relative wealth and public works for good water and sewage treatment.

This is the most likely reason behind the decrease in infectious diseases, not the medical system’s vaunted vaccinations.
