Disgusting Ingredients Found in Our Foods

Things that make you say “DISGUSTING!”

Pink slime has had its fair share of people’s attention these past few months, and for good reason. (more on pink slime here) People are waking up to the reality that the companies creating, distributing, and processing their foods don’t have our health on the top of their list of priorities.

The more we look into these processed foods the worse it gets…  my friend Adam (a health conscious fellow) had this to say as he browsed some online news sources:

So, I was just reading this and was sickened to discovered more things that has snuck into our food that I was unaware of. (1) Castoreum – The anal secretion of a beaver used to make some hard candy smell sweet and enhance the flavor of “natural” berry flavors (2) L-Cysteine – A dough conditioner made from human hair (3) Shellac, resin from a lac bug [aka. confectioner’s glaze] – Makes hard candy like jelly beans shiny (4) Cellulose [aka. wood pulp] – Used to thicken and wick moisture, in place of flour, in things like shredded cheese, salad dressing, and chocolate milk. Just…wow. Source Here.

And it goes on and on. Just search “In our food” in google and look at recent posts. I found this today, Headline: “There May Be Flame Retardants in Your Continue reading

Hotdogs and Bacon and Cancer Oh My!!

Thank you : http://www.flickr.com/photos/blake/Its official: A link between eating processed meat, such as bacon or sausages, and pancreatic cancer has been shown by researchers. This is just one of many studies linking processed meats to many different types of cancers additionally including colorectal cancer, leukemia. Reason number ONE: Nitrites & Nitrates!

HEY WAIT! Don’t just take my word for it:

  • Read about BBC News’ take on it here.
  • See “Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine’s” Good Medicine article here.
  • Cancer Prevention Coalition talks about it too, here.

That’s just getting started just google “processed meat cancer” and you’ll be amazed at how many articles are just now being written while schools are still serving thousands of processed hotdogs and meat to our young ones everyday.

The main study was published in the British Journal of Cancer and they found that eating processed meats such as bacon, sausage, salami, pepperoni and hotdogs increases your risk for developing pancreatic cancer  by 19 percent for every 50 grams of processed meat you consume.  What’s crazy about that one sausage link constitutes about 50+ grams.

The World Cancer Research Fund has advised people to completely avoid processed meat. The nitrates used for preserving these types of meats convert into nitrosamines which has been linked to a number of cancers.  It gets worse, processed meats with nitrites are shown to increase your risk of :

  • Bladder cancer by 59 percent
  • Colon cancer by 59 percent
  • Stomach cancer by 38 percent
  • Pancreatic Cancer by 67 percent (one of the worse cancers!)

BUT WHAT IF I LIKE HOTDOGS!?

Whats the solution?

America’s Grocery Budget over the Years with #Infographic

What’s your grocery budget?

America's Grocery BudgetI believe people need to recognize that food itself has been changed to be mass produced and has become cheaper, thus helping the wealth of the country but also decreasing the quality of food dramatically. Finally in these recent years, the public has said enough is enough! We want better food! We are tired of genetically modified food made to be sprayed with pesticides and other contaminates and processed to kingdom come before getting to our dinner table. We want BETTER FOOD!! And our wallet is what talks in this day and age.

We must purchase whole organic food that isn’t tainted by corporate greed and a means to a bottom line.  Right now one company is striving to provide wholesome food that is as natural as it was in the 1800’s! It’s called Beyond Organic and its called that because it goes beyond the minimum requirements of “organic food” and goes straight to the old world production methods and right to the most natural way of doing things.

Below is an infographic that shows a historic look at America’s Spending habits when it comes to groceries. (Keep in mind that a lot of the changes in spending has to do with how much food costs too, not just how much income we make)

America's Grocery Spending Habits

Source (click this link to see larger version): http://www.billshrink.com/blog/10320/america-grocery-spending/

In conclusion, We went from spending close to 30% of our paychecks on food in the 50’s, now we only spend close to 13% of our income on “food”.  Its no wonder when the majority of our food consists of genetically modified corn, soy, wheat, processed foods, and commercial meats whose main source of diet consists of the same corn.  These have been proven to bring on new allergies and are very unhealthy. We need to wake up and realize that its worth our money to eat healthy!

Right now you can get organic staple foods like organic grassfed beef, organic cheese, organic dairy drink, organic chocolate, fresh spring water and other beverages shipped to your door straight from the farm. I’m talking about Beyond Organic.   A new company already shipping and already having lots of satisified customers.
