5 FDA Approved Foods That Are TOXIC to Humans

July 20, 2015   |   83 Comments   |   33

Unless you grow your own vegetables and fruits and raise your own livestock, and eat nothing else, you are constantly being bombarded with chemicals and toxins found in today’s modern food. And because of this, most of the things we put in our mouths makes us a little less healthy every day.

The majority of food items purchased at the grocery store and manufactured by big name brands contain toxins like BPA, genetically-modified food, aspartame, fluoride, pesticides and toxic vaccines and we aren’t even aware of it. And it’s killing us.

According to the CIA’s World Fact Book, The United States ranks 42 in life expectancy. The world’s greatest super power in the #42 spot? Malta beats us? The Faroe Islands beat us? Do any of us even know where they are? Doesn’t matter, they’re in the 34th slot. So the United States, a country that spends more on healthcare than any other nation each year, is not a very healthy place to live turns out.

This country’s citizens are developing increasing incidences of heart disease, diabetes and cancer. And why do we suppose this is? Are we just making unhealthier choices? No doubt some of the responsibility is on our shoulders as more of us reach for processed garbage and call it food. But the fact is there are chemicals in our food that have been approved by the FDA that are so dangerous and toxic they have been banned by other countries.

Are you angry yet? You should be.

And in spite of testing and data that has been collected, proving that much of what is in our “food” is harmful and even deadly, corporate food giants like General Mills, Kelloggs and Nestle continue to lobby and push to continue their abhorrent business practices.

Once you start to become educated on what chemicals and toxins are doing to our health, and then start reading labels, you will begin to know deeply that we are slowly and steadily being poisoned.

Here are 5 of the most common toxic chemicals that are in many of our foods products. Do all you can to avoid these:

  1. Acesulfame Potassium (also known as Acesulfame K)

It seems like every year “they” are coming out with a new calorie-free artificial sweetener. Aceslfame Potassium (just the name alone sounds like something off of the periodic chart), is far sweeter than sugar but is thought to have a bitter aftertaste. You’ll most likely recognize the names it is marketed as “DiabetiSweet” and “Sweet One.” It is used in gelatin desserts, baked goods and chewing gum.

Possible side effects of this additive are, according to research studies, lung cancer and thymus gland tumors in rats, as well as leukemia and breast cancer.

  1. Aspartame

You’re most likely familiar with this artificial sweetener that is marketed under the names “NutraSweet” and “Equal.” It is common for diabetics to reach for aspartame instead of regular table sugar because it’s supposed to be healthier for them.

You’ll find this artificial sweetener in a lot of common sugar-free beverages, candy, gum, low-calorie desserts, power bars and even some brands of chewable vitamins. Bottom line, this dangerous sweetener is literally in thousands of different food and drink products. And here’s the real kicker, it is actually marketed in a lot of… wait for it… “health products.” According to some health experts, this additive is one of the most toxic substances being added to our foods.

Besides having the ability to cause headaches, nausea and weird rashes, aspartame is also linked to depression, insomnia, hallucinations, blurred vision, and some studies have found it may even cause cancer. Not so sweet.

  1. BHA and BHT (Butylated Hydroxyanisole and Butylated Hydroxytoluene)

BHA and BHT are Petroleum-derived antioxidants and are primarily used in the preservation of fats and oil. They prevent these foods from oxidizing and spoiling too quickly. You can find them in chewy granola bars, breakfast cereals, potato chips, shortening, desserts, and candies, to name some of the food items.

These oxidants have the ability to form potentially cancer-causing reactive compounds in your body. They can also raise your cholesterol, cause liver and kidney damage, immune disorders and infertility. The Department of Health and Human Services classifies the preservative as “reasonably anticipated to be a human carcinogen.” Well that’s good to know.

  1. Blue #1 (Brilliant Blue) and Blue #2 (Indigotine)

We all remember being a kid and thinking eating blue foods, like blue ice cream, blue frosting, blue cereal and blue candy was, like, the coolest thing ever. And then you grow up and find out that blue dye has been linked to cancers in animal studies. The Center for Science in the Public Interest recommends that they be avoided. Oh, they happen to be banned in the EU.

  1. Fluoride

We thought we’d end on this last one because some people still don’t know the truth about fluoride or are simply in disbelief about it. For decades we were told that fluoride is necessary to grow strong teeth And we bought into it. And then eventually studies were conducted that showed just how dangerous it is.

Our government puts fluoride in our drinking water because it’s “good for our teeth” or at least that’s what they tell us. And despite the warnings of scientists and medical experts, they have no intention of ever stopping adding fluoride to our municipal water. Isn’t that odd? You’d think they’d be thrilled with how much money and time they’d save not having to continue treating the water. Are they really that concerned about our teeth, or do they have an ulterior motive?

Even small amounts of fluoride if consumed can actually damage your teeth and bones and disrupt your thyroid function. It has also been linked to cancer and the lowering of IQ. And according to a 2006 National Research Council (NRC) fluoride report produced by a panel of experts who reviewed hundreds of published fluoride studies:

  • Exposure to fluoride disrupts collagen production and leads to the breakdown of collagen in our bones, tendons, muscles, skin, cartilage, lungs, kidneys and trachea.
  • Fluoride depletes the energy reserves and the ability of our white blood cells to find and destroy foreign bodies. Even the smallest, smallest traces of fluoride in the body can seriously depress the ability of white blood cells to destroy pathogens.
  • Fluoride seems to confuse the immune system and get it to attack the body’s own tissues. This causes an increase in tumor growth in cancer-prone individuals.
  • Fluoride disrupts thyroid function.
  • Fluoride promotes the development of bone cancer.
  • Fluoride causes premature aging.

Again we have to ask, isn’t it strange that we in this country spend more money on healthcare than the average person in any other country in the world, yet we are among the sickest citizens in the world. We spend more on treating our illness and disease, yet people in Switzerland, France, Norway, U.K. even South Korea all outlive us?!

Why are we not living longer, despite all the money we spend on doctors, hospitals and prescription drugs?

Would it shock you if I told you Americans have all become guinea pigs in a 20 year long health experiment?

The truth is, the food that you and your family have in your kitchen right now is poisoning you, literally. But who cares about that because the important thing is big corporations are making a lot of money. Right?

    I am new to this blog but I bought your book recently because my Dr. tried four different prescriptions to lower my blood pressure and all of them made me sick. Her solution was to add more prescriptions to counter the negative effects of the initial ones. NO. Big pharma just wants to sell more products and make more money.

    I would like to answer some of the comments above.

    Fluoride - Berkey makes a charcoal water filter device which also has a place to install fluoride filters. The charcoal filters can be cleaned and last for several years. They don't say how long the fluoride filters last but I change mine once a year. The water tastes very good and you can eliminate the heavy cases of bottled water (of questionable quality). It's easy to make enough for all coffee, tea and cooking.

    I use Celtic Sea Salt made by Selina Naturally. The flavor is really good and it contains lots of trace minerals. If you don't have a health food store, it can be ordered on line.

    I have been diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes only for 6 years now. When I first received the diagnosis I was scared. I immediately changed my diet. I eliminated sugar, drank bottled or well water only, and ate more vegetables. I quickly lost weight and with medication my diabetes has been under control. However, my last check up revealed a rise in my A1c so the doctor had to increase the dosage in one of my medications. I realized my body had reacted to the change in diet and no sugar but medicine was only treating symptoms. I strongly believe there is a cure for diabetes and it must start with diet. I had turned to the harmful sugar substitutes and will now change to True Via. I have planted a small vegetable garden to eat more fresh and chemical free foods. Sugar and flour are not all that bad for you until it is changed through man's processing and refining. I look forward to receiving the Smart Blood Sugar Book and will practice what I learn.

    I heard on the news from NPR this morning that researchers have discovered that life expectancy has actually gone DOWN recently among middle-aged white Americans, for the first time since records have been kept. I must infer that these toxic ingredients are among the causes for this trend.

    My dear Dr
    I am now 80 years young and my wife is 79 years young. I am a diabetic and my wife wife is pre-diabetic. She also has Alzheimer's. She has had ALS for almost 8-10 years . I am the cook in the family and I know that something is causing our society to be in a downward spiral. One of the causes I believe is sugar. I want to eliminate sugar completely to see if I am on the right path to see if I can start reversing both problems

    I have read a lot about all of this in the past. I believe it all and have taken small steps to improve. It is up to me now. I need to stop putting so much credit to satisfying my taste buds with quick fixes. It is up to us to say NO to what we know is harmful. What many of you say is true . if we stop buying and spread the word they won't be able to sell all the harmful junk.

      I am 86, nearly 87, and live in apartment. I have tried growing green beans and tomatoes in a lovely 'Grow Box' and more recently just in small planters (just tomatoes this time) but haven't had very good luck. Said I wouldn't try any more, but maybe I will give it another go next year. It is sad that we have such polluted ground and water and even our air. I have ordered the blood pressure book by Dr. Marlene but it hasn't arrived yet. Will be happy to ge it and put it in practice.

    Is incredible but true,and that because executives from big pharma and food industry (are now double dipping even we cannot prove it) are now forking for the FDA, and is a shame that a Dr that found a treatment to change the DNA in a sperm to have 3 providers in it,(because a couple were the wife was getting pregnant their baby's were dying at 3 to 4 months after they were born,this procedure was not autorized by FDA because theY claim that since it wasen't a proven METHOD the baby's could dye (they were dying anyway) so the Dr perform this procedure in Mexico (succesfully) and here were are, THE BIGGEST COUNTRY IN THE WORLD IS REALLY A THIRD WORLD COUNTRY

    I read the article and feel like I've just started an enhanced education on an already interested subject-- now what can a person do to improve-- in a fast-- too little time day as it is to accomplish everything plus living away from places where healthy foods are obtainable. We live in the mountains of up-state New York--the Adirondacks. We're older and have always thought we were caucus when choosing food. We don't drink, smoke, or drink coffee or tea. { We live in a society that report those foods have no consequences to our health.) Obviously there is more to do in our reading labels besides how much salt, sugar, and fat along with other ingredients we can't even pronounce amounts too. Does it sound like I'm overwhelmed with more homework? I probably am speaking for many people however, who want to take care of their amazing bodies in spite of the money first perspective-- business world ideology of the land of the free-- when it comes to producing foods in grocery stores. I am listening. Sincerely Annette Mitchell

    Dear Doctor: I purchaed your book last week and read the PDF version you emailed me and i must say it woke me up to a lot more than i thought. I applaud you for stepping up and telling the truth about things and also giving me enough facts to get off the couch and act. I am currently takeing some thing you recommended and i set up a chart on my blood pressure / time date etc to record my progress , i'll come back and report what the first 7 days looks like on the eight day.
    The issue for the future when a number of us who understand grows to a point we can't be ignored is , how will the food and drug industry transition if at all. The deciding factor is education and with that the dropping out of the food chain or the people stop buying the product. I know because of your wonderfull information , i am now a label reader which will bring me to what i can't eat out of the super market and what i need to grow my self if able. You give me hope i can add years to my life and all the while be happier because of it , thank you!.
    PS: every one needs to buy your book just to turn on the lights so to speak !.

    However I came to live in the US with my husband and here my eating habits have changed radically .
    About 3 years ago , I started having pain in my feet and joints of hands swell and hurt daily.
    I went to several doctors and all without exception said " blame your mother " because it is a hereditary disease .
    However I refused to take the medication indicated , I was in panic with the side effects .
    My father was a pharmacist and he always said the same medicine that heals, kills ." So be careful what you put inside your body.

    I've been given a blessing from God. Accidentally, I stumbled upon Dr. Will by the hand of God. How else. I am now 80 and I have been reading all day and my eyes are so tired, but it is worth what I have read. About 10 years ago, I had an ingrown toenail that got infected. I had several doctors try to fix the problem and finally surgery. Having been given way too many antibiotics, I got colostrum dificile (c.dif).
    After being diagnosed and treatment from doctors failed, I visited the health food store where I did my shopping. I was set up with supplements and a book to guide me on what to eat and it had to be from scratch. After 3 months, I was well. The supplements I took were for that particular problem and it surely did the job. I am still taking the same probiotic which has Saccharomyces Boulardii that is the healing product among other ingredients, and that will continue for the rest of my life for protection. This is very common now, but it is very difficult to heal. It seems that we have to find our own way through this jungle of health issues. I now have about 13 health issues that I am treating and I find comfort in reading the blogs and am getting the right guidance in the articles for my multiple health issues. My son was diagnosed by two doctors for Multiple Scherosis and he said, mother, I don't want to take that bad medicine. I said, well, there is another way. "The Prescription for Natural Healing" that the health food stores use to help their patrons and it says that if you are in the first stage, their recommendations may even heal it or at least make it less active. He started the supplements and his symptoms went away. After 2 years, he said maybe I don't have MS, I want to stop my supplements. He called in a week and said that his symptoms were coming back and he is on his supplements again from now on. It pays to nip it in the bud. We are so thankful for this blessing. He is in the prime of his career as an engineer. My daughter suffers from migraines, no thyroid, except compounding medicine for a thyroid every day of her life which causes other health issues.
    I would like to introduce Primal Source News to both of my children. Am I allowed to share my source or should it be done through your group. It is just too good to pass up and they need this info so much to guide them through the rest of their life. If you please, I would appreciate your answer to me through my email. Thanks to all of your people doing this and may God;s blessings fall upon your efforts in doing so..

    I am a new member to DR. Marlene's advise, and I know a lot about all the toxic cemicals in our food
    I was born and raised on a farm and we grew all our own food, only bought the bare necessity so and grew or made the rest
    The best water is distilled water, and I will never drink any thing else.
    I am waiting for the book I ordered from DR. Marlene to. Eat healthy and get rid of. My high blood pressure, and of the drugs I am taking for it.
    I am 84 years old and that's all I have wrong with me.
    Exercise is another way to stay healthy, I walk 3 miles each day and ride a bike 10. to20 miles or more, also do all my yard work and fix every thing, don't hire no one,I keep my weight under control, I am 6 ft tall. and weigh 175 pounds.
    My parents lived into their 90 s and no such a thing as high blood pressure or high cholesterol.
    Exercise ,eat right and you will live and enjoy your life and could live into the 100 s, and above all follow DR. Marlene's advise, good luck.

    My insulin dependent diabetic husband just went thru a 6 month program. It was a big change in his diet, just the opposite of all the diabetic classes we have taken, plus vitamins. At a cost of over 5k. The main thing is to eat meat and vegetables. No sugar, no bread, pasta, rice, white potatoes, corn, no cow's milk or dairy, no cheese, no fruit juice, no artificial sweetners, no colas regular or diet. Sounds impossible but it can be done. His morning blood sugar is now 100-120. Now that he is under control, one day a week, he can have a little of the off limit foods. Instead of cow's milk, drink unsweetened almond milk and sweeten with Stevia or honey. Instead of rice, have quinoa. Also, no cereal is allowed, so he has hot quinoa three mornings a week. Four days a week, he has eggs, sausage, small tomatoes and fruit. He is allowed only 2 cups of fruit a day and it must be before 2pm. Sweet potatoes are allowed since they do not affect blood sugar.
    The diet is based on the Low Glycemic index. For an afternoon snack, he has hummus and celery. Nuts are also on the diet. A side affect of the diet, is that it lessens neuropathy. I am not a diabetic, but by being on this diet my medium to severe neuropathy has almost disappeared, I guess someone would call it the Cave Man diet.

    I am new to the forum and just purchased Dr. Marlene’s books on managing your blood pressure and glucose level. I have not gotten them yet because it is within the shipping time. I read the download of them and took action to improve my health. I am 60 years old. My BP went from 155/92 to 129/87 and my fasting glucose dropped from 307 to 167 in 6 days. The books are a revelation. I felt like I took the red pill in the Matrix.

    When walking through the grocery store I now see the beautiful packages of “food” as what it really is- poison that is killing us. I thought I was eating healthy. I now know better. I agree with this article that the American people are all part of some grand experiment. As Dr. Marlene stated, “No, this is a man-made crisis. Which is good news, because it means you can unmake it.”

    Poison food exists on the market because consumer buys it. Clearly, from my BP and fasting glucose numbers it was killing me or setting me up for long-term disability. In 6 short days I have seen dramatic improvement in my health by making lifestyle changes. I will get moving and not buy any poison again in my life.

    I believe the solution is spiritual. My first thought was to suggest a prayer group to lift up our government so that Jesus can intervene.
    Its a good idea to pray over everything we put in our bodies.
    The people who control the companies that are creating and selling dangerous products require prayer to change their ways. The employees in these companies need prayer for relief of working in such toxic places.
    Through the Old and New Testaments, we are reminded not to worry. We are to pray, praise, and give thanks.

    Organic is not necessarily organic. A large field can have organically grown crops until the next field over air sprays or ground waters with chemicals. The sprays will carry and no telling how far the ground water will go. I was once tasting wine in Santa Cruz and it tasted like celery and was told that the ground water to the vineyard came from the Gilroy area. That's a good travel distance. When it says organic....I don't believe it. I just have to be careful in other ways. My husband is the cook and he makes big batches of different soups and pasta sauces and either freezes them or cans them. I'm sure some of the ingredients are tainted but most are at least fresh vegetables not necessarily organic as we can't guarantee that it really is.

    Just an FYI for everyone....The only power we seem to have, as consumers, is to boycott or not buy the processed products on the shelf. That is the only thing that will remove them. Also, your grocer should be willing to hear your requests for products. We all need to work harder to improve things where we live.

    I am interested in the comments of another "Jerrie" spelled the same as my own whose comments I read here and found them to be so relevant. I find it sad that we are raising generations of citizens that do not take responsibility for the choices they make. I grew up in a family with little income. My parents worked very hard to make sure we had food on the table, and a roof over our heads and as much love as we could handle. We always had a garden. We always had fresh from the garden vegetables in season, and my mother canned just about everything to last through the winter months. They bought large burlap bags of beans, potatoes, onions, etc and my mother made the most wonderful soups, stews, etc out of very little. We had home made bread from recipes handed down through generations. There were lots of products in the markets that were factory made, but we could not afford them and my mother's home cooking was the best. In the summer, we had our own fresh vegetables. Everything was made from scratch. The big food manufacturers will not continue to produce a product unless it sells. It is the law of supply and demand. As long as we consumers continue to buy foods made with ingredients that we cannot pronounce, and we do not bother to find out what these ingredients really are, we are at the mercy of our own lack of knowledge when we have the ability to educate ourselves. If we continue to purchase these same foods because they are convenient, quick, and tasty, then we are the ones who are responsible for our fate. The big companies will continue to manufacture what the public demands. Do your homework, people. You should make the decisions about what you eat and feed your families based on what you know, not what advertising campaigns tell you. It does us no good for us to sit and wring our hands and ask why doesn't someone do something. We can't make someone else responsible for our well being. We all have Senators and Congressmen who depend on our votes for their very jobs. And, I assure you, the FDA is counting on your ignorance. If you can email this blog, you can email your representatives in Washington. And most of all.......stop buying processed foods that contain additives that you cannot pronounce just so they have a longer shelf life. I read everything. If I don't know what is in it, I don't buy it. And, while I am on this soapbox :) the one scary thing about genetically altered crops is that one farmer can plant it next door to a farmer that grows everything organically and does not use genetically altered seeds, but the bees and butterflies, etc can't tell the difference and the cross pollination begins. Wherever you live, find out how you can get involved in making a difference. And, keep reading this blog.

      I agree that we are a lazy society for the most part, when it comes to grocery shopping and meal planning/fixing...BUT...our government has made it next to impossible to support a family on one person's income anymore, and, if we are working 1 to 3 jobs to pay the bills then, unfortunately, the kids cook for themselves! I know we did and I'm no spring chicken! Having easy to prepare meals doesn't mean that we want to be POISONED!!! And there's no reason, EXCEPT MONEY, that huge food producers and manufacturers concoct the JUNK we find in our grocery stores today! There's no reason to put Bromine in baked goods, except for MONEY. It keeps baked goods longer than if they were made fresh from a bakery in town, like years ago. My grandmother used to make umpteen loaves of bread a week for her family, and it took her all day to do that! When someone is working 2 jobs how are they going to do that; along with the laundry, dishes, cleaning, ironing, changing beds, taking the car in to be serviced (which costs an arm and a leg now-a-days), and last but not least, the CRAPPY foods ARE CHEAP!!! And if you're trying to survive in this US of A, many of us have NO choice but to buy CHEAP!!!
      I know better but because I'm on a fixed income, and my health costs are thru the roof, I cannot afford to buy the foods I WANT. But that doesn't give big corporations the right to poison me for HUGE bottom lines!!! And, by the way, the F&DA is nothing more than an overpaid, over-lobbied group of old fogies on the dole anyway. Just watch TV for 5 minutes and you'll see at least 2 commercials about drug recalls and lawsuits that the F&DA approved!!! And the USDA is NO BETTER. If I had the money I'd buy a farm and move out of the city for good; then I'd need a body transplant so I could work in my garden like I did when I was in my thirties! Growing my own veggies, raising my own chickens, pigs and beef cattle! That WOULD be MY CHOICE. And even then, you'd have to be AWFULLY careful not to buy feed for your animals that wasn't poisoned, chemicalized, or GM'd!
      All my best, God Bless.

    I science have progress a lot yesterday to today, now imagine today from 50 years ago.
    More people so things got to grow faster, not healthier, cause kids, kids having kids,because the media ( TV, radio, c-phone, texting, etc.) so with food that's part of the problem, now medical science got a job to find meds to cure the crop that they use, that make us ill. Someone mention their choice for president, and that's good, but back to school, put a good apple into a bag with bad apples or visa versa, if don't know the result you should try it. One word "CAPITALIZIM" this word does a lot most people don't like to read about." May God bless us all, amen. "

    I am truly a believer that additives to processed foods are not in our best interests and growing your own or buying organic is best. However, as I read the comments here, I am aware there are a lot of comments such as, "I wonder when our government is going to...", "our government and these companies shouldn't be....., "Why doesn't the media do something about.....?" We are a country of citizens who have come to expect someone else to take responsibility for actions that are harmful to us. "We the people" are the government. We control the media just by always tuning into our "favorite" programs regardless of who sponsors them. We are citizens that over the years have dictated to the very companies that produce our foods that we need faster and easier to support our busy lifestyles; however, it must be tastier and more economical. How many of us grow even a small garden? How many of us are willing to cook from scratch? Bake our own cakes, rolls, breads, desserts from scratch? How many of us read, and understand the labels in items we buy. We are a society that has grown lazy when it comes to buying and preparing foods because we have demanded that we want it easy, and we want it now. If a processed food does not sell, it will not be on the grocery shelf very long. Most of the items we see and purchase are there because we demand it. We have become a nation of consumers who do not want to give up our favorite foods or beverages to get healthy. We want some kind of a quick fix or pill that will make us better. The only way to make it better, is to do our homework and
    contact our legislators on both state and national levels, and seek out other concerned citizens and carry these issues as far and wide as we can. The internet today has endless possibilities as how to reach these people or groups. In the meantime, stop buying fast foods; Stop eating out. Read labels on everything you buy. Buy a bread machine and only the purest ingredients you can find to put in it. And, most important, "We are the voice of America. Speak Up and Reach Out"!

    I am new to this blog and although I've heard about the negative effects of high fructose corn syrup, fluoride, growth hormones, etc., this is even more detailed than I could have expected. I am presently high risk for diabetes and this just gives me even more insight as to why! I will continue to look forward to this blog. The better informed, the better decisions made.

    I purchased lettuce at Costco. My husband passed away and I kind of let things slide.
    Went to clean the refrigerator out six weeks, , six weeks later, and that lettuce still looked as good as it did the day I bought it. I wonder how old it was when I bought it.
    I will never eat vegies from Costco again. There could not be any nutrition in the lettuce, and had to have so much poison preservatives on it. . . .

    What country is healthy?? Maybe I will move. Am all alone, and nothing holds me to this country.

    We need to change our government, and get BIG business out of it. I'm voting for Bernie Sanders...Social democrat does not frighten me - Corporate fascism and all the money given to it does...The stuff that they are spraying (persistent contrails) into our air that we breathe is frightening too: we are the guinea pigs...The new world order, mentioned by every president after JFK, wants to reduce the world population by 7 billion people...by the demigods, I think that they are going to achieve it.

    This country is run by greed. I am 72 years old with Diabetes 2 and IBS-D. I have been trying for a few years now to fix these problems since these syndromes can be fixed. I have stopped almost all pharmaceuticals much to the frustration of my Doctor. I do see a Chiropractor for some things. Texas does not allow a regular MD to also get a license as a naturopath. They have to go to another state and get certified as a naturopath in order to do both. I cannot afford a naturopath Medicare will not pay anything for it so with my fixed income I am trying to buy organic food, free range eggs, grass fed beef but it is so expensive. But what's a person to do, try and grow my own food. Even the dirt is poisoned with gmo pesticides, growth hormones etc. For over 60 years I have been eating the junk on the market and taking the pills to supposedly fix the side effects. I do not know if my efforts for the last 12 years can fix all the damage. Thank you for your blog.

    Everyday I encounter patients with multiple health conditions, taking multiple medication, getting fatter, sicker, and grumpy. I am a surgeon, so my first response is not to write a script for more medication. I go into my lecture about diet, exercise, life style changes, the value of meditation and spiritual orientation. Frankly my patients don't want to hear it. Usually they say something like "right Doc you want to take away my pasta, no way". Or they tell me they are taking a hand full of supplements every day so they will be just fine. I am sure your efforts are extremely worthwhile. I applaud your teachings and I admire your dedication. It is a huge job, but your efforts are extraordinary. I hope I can pass on some of your information to my patients.

      Dr Thomas,

      We're humbled and very gracious for your praise - it's a struggle exposing the true nasty nature of these big pharmaceutical corporations and it can be quite difficult to get people to understand the dangers of their "chemical-induced" lifestyles... but more and more people are waking up to the truth and big pharma is getting really ticked off by our efforts (which must mean we're doing something right!).

      I sincerely hope you keep reading our articles and letting us know what you think. Thank you Dr. Tom!

    For Shirl:

    No, boiling kills bacteria and may evaporate most volatile organic compounds but doesn't remove elemental contaminants. Distilling water with a home still will remove nearly all of the garbage from your municipal water but distilled water doesn't taste very good. You can buy certain water filters that actually do remove fluoride and leave the water with a better taste. Caveat emptor.

    To those several contributors who asked why the media don't speak out for us: I strongly suspect that they have been threatened. The big corporations are thugs! They will do whatever is necessary to further their agendas and with the big money at their disposal, their threats are not to be ignored. The media are essentially as helpless as we are. We are on our own for our health!

      It would make sense since boiling water essentially "purifies" it - but I haven't really seen any studies that support that theory. It's definitely something worth looking into :) thanks for your contribution Shirl!

    A year ago I gave up trying to lose weight and instead changed my eating habits. Went to a local health food store and started buying organic (certified) food, including grass fed beef with no hormones or drugs, range-free chickens and eggs from those kinds of chickens.
    Bought only organically grown vegetables, started eating butter instead of margarine, ate Ezekiel bread, made from grain shoots and not grain. Ate a handful of organic almonds daily and a square of dark chocolate at least 85%. No processed foods of any kind. No "other white meat". Following a doctor's plan in a book. Ate all of these things I wanted and lost 30 pounds in six months. There ain't any food in a traditional grocery store.

    I just feel, what can one do and still allow this government to continue to get away with doing this to us and what steps can we as a people do about it. Since no one is listening to us or keep telling us that things are just fine when in fact we are just sitting ducks to continue with this happening and not taking action on this.

    "... a 20 year health experiment" ?? Try 60 years! My dad (now deceased) knew all this was going on since the 1950's. He was a Chiropractor and one of the first holistic heath practitioners I know of. He taught us to eat organic before "Organic" was even a thing. He was well aware of the fraud and corruption in our government; and not just the FDA. We all need to take a long, hard, critical look at the EPA, the USDA, the HSA . . . and we need to be more critical of the AMA, ADA and Big Pharma who have been lying to us for decades about fluoride, amalgam fillings, and so many other harmful additives, drugs and so called "health" practices. Many health practitioners and public servants KNOW today of the lies, but are unable to speak honestly in fear of retribution, fear for their jobs and professional licenses or being ostracized in their own community. It's hard to believe this is America, the land of the free, the land of Liberty -- But only as long as you comply with Big Government and the powerful corporate lobbyists.

    For 60 years, I watched my father and other chiropractors and holistic practitioners being falsely prosecuted for their knowledge, beliefs and techniques. And now - more and more - everything my father ever spoke out against is coming true.

I would like to know though why you and as many doctors as possible do not continually bug the media to make the FDA more credible and to have them protect us from the food giants..bug them relentllously until they do something..And especially the media... OR are they all being paid off by the government.and BIG business.(probably).

    One of the main things I found out I was allergic to, is High Fructose Corn Syrup....it's in everything !! most all the foods I used to buy have that junk inside: Heinz ketchup !, skippy peanut butter ! Anything that has or might be put on the shelves that has some kind of fruit in it....ex: All jams, jellies....Anything frozen with fruit....all, or most of all things, at the grocery store have something in them that is a poison or a long shelf life. I could go on and on, but this is enough for now - thanks !
