Wake Up Call News, an Alternative Media site that “shares all the big top news from the whole world” and whose mission is to “share The Truth and Wake people Up” had an alarming article about foods that are available to us here in the US but are banned elsewhere. Citing mercola.com as their source, we see the following horrifying ‘foods’ that are in every day foods, despite being seen as harmful to toxic in other countries.
Often,when I reference another article, I do my best to edit down to highlight the most significant parts. It was hard to do so with this piece as I felt nearly all the information provided with each was quite crucial….
#1: FARM-RAISED SALMON
#2: GENETICALLY ENGINEERED PAPAYA
#3: RACTOPAMINE-TAINTED MEAT
#4: FLAME RETARDANT DRINKS
#5: PROCESSED FOODS CONTAINING ARTIFICIAL FOOD COLORS AND DYES
#6: ARSENIC-LACED CHICKEN
#7: BREAD WITH POTASSIUM BROMATE
#9 BHA (butylated hydroxyanisole) and BHT (butylated hydroxytoluene)
#10: MILK AND DAIRY PRODUCTS LACED WITH RBGH
To me, the most appalling thing is not what these things do to us in terms of poisoning, but that they’re all OK by the FDA. So what does that tell you about everything else they approve, including prescription drugs? And how about the ‘approved’ advice that can be doled out in terms of what we should be eating?
Think about where the information is coming from and who benefits and try to adopt the attitude that ‘approved by the FDA’ really doesn’t mean anything in terms of whether something is good for us or might actually make us sick.
Yet one more reason to go Paleo and steer clear from any ‘food’ that is packaged or processed. Go straight to the source and be confident that you’re procuring clean, safe food for yourself and your family. Support your local farmers and ranchers who you can get to know on a personal level and develop a trust that their food is actually, truly food.
