“Are you not going to report about the new paper from Oxford about being allowed to murder innocent newborn children because they are morally irrelevant?? or is it just more of the eugenics plan with bill gates and his ultrasound device that kills sperm and his TED talk on bringing the population down through vaccines and propper healthcare, the georgia guidestones lay it out very clearly. and also funding Monsanto heavily and yes our so called GE free clean green country is selling GE Monsanto seeds to our farmers under their subsidary company Seminis seeds. As well as the go ahead for oil drilling in the beatiful oceans and fracking which destroys the land polutes our beautiful water to the point that the water itself becomes flamable. And all fast food and procesed foods contain chemicals that cause the brain to bleed leading to brain damage

Shocking levels of arsenic found in baby formula made with brown rice syrup

arsenic

Think baby formula with brown rice syrup is the healthier choice? Think again: infant formula made with brown rice syrup may contain 30 times more arsenic than other formulas, according to a new study from Dartmouth College.
Environmental chemist Brian P. Jackson led the team of researchers in their study of arsenic levels in 17 infant formulas. Their results are surprising: formulas made with brown rice syrup contained a staggering 20 to 30 times more arsenic than other formulas. One organic infant formula sweetened with brown rice syrup contained six times the amount of arsenic the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) considers safe for drinking water.
The research team also looked at arsenic levels in 29 cereal bars. Brown rice syrup and other rice products were listed in the top five ingredients of 22 of these bars – and those were the cereal bars that contained the highest arsenic levels.
While arsenic is regulated in drinking water, there are no current federal limits for arsenic in food. Because of this, high levels of arsenic can be present in foods many parents assume are safe for children, such as organic infant formulas and cereal bars. Researchers say, “There is an urgent need for regulatory limits on arsenic in food.”
Jackson adds, “In the absence of regulations for levels of arsenic in food, I would certainly advise parents who are concerned about their children’s exposure to arsenic not to feed them formula where brown rice syrup is the main ingredient.”

The trouble with brown rice syrup? Banned pesticides left high levels of arsenic in the soil

Many people consider brown rice syrup a healthy alternative to cane sugar, but brown rice syrup comes with a serious disadvantage: high levels of arsenic.
The problem is that rice used to make brown rice syrup is typically grown in regions where arsenic pesticides were heavily used before the EPA banned them in 2009. And while these pesticides are no longer used, their toxic residue is still lurking in the soil where our food is grown.
Rice appears to soak up unusually large amounts of arsenic from the soil as it grows. Much of this arsenic ends up in the brown hull, so brown rice and brown rice syrup will contain particularly high amounts of arsenic compared to products like white rice and rice starch.
Unfortunately, buying organic doesn’t solve the problem. Organic rice syrup has been found to contain very high levels of arsenic, because even organic rice absorbs arsenic already present in the soil.

Teen girl rushed to hospital for eating nothing but chicken nuggets for 15 years

If you ate only McDonald’s chicken McNuggets every day for practically every meal, what do you think your health condition would be like in 15 years? One British girl, 17-year-old Stacey Irvine, recently found out the hard way that such a diet severely destroyed her health when she was rushed to the hospital after collapsing and having severe difficulty breathing.
Yahoo! News reports that the young factory worker had been eating practically nothing else besides McDonald’s chicken McNuggets since she was about two years old. Shockingly, Stacey has also never once eaten a single fruit or vegetable, according to the same report, which has left her grossly deficient in practically every single vitamin and mineral in existence.
This horrific diet finally caught up with Stacey, however, when she fell over at work and had to be rushed to the emergency room. Doctors discovered severely-swelled veins on the young girl’s tongue, and quickly diagnosed her with anemia. They subsequently put her on an “emergency vitamin regimen,” according to reports, and warned her that if she does not change her dietary habits, she will soon die.
But Stacey’s addiction to fast food nuggets is so severe that she still apparently refuses to eat anything else besides them, except for the occasional piece of toast or potato chips. And Stacey’s mom, Evonne, has apparently tried everything to get her daughter to eat other foods, including starving the girl at one point, but to no avail.
“She’s been told in no uncertain terms that she’ll die if she carries on like this,” Evonne is quoted as saying by CBS News. “But she says she can’t eat anything else. I’m at my wit’s end. I’m praying she can be helped before it’s too late.”
McDonald’s chicken McNuggets, of course, are made from a so-called food product called “mechanically separated chicken,” which is created from chickens that have been “stripped down to the bone, and then ‘ground up’ into a chicken mash, then combined with a variety of stabilizers and preservatives, pressed into familiar shapes, breaded and deep fried, freeze dried, and then shipped to a McDonald’s near you.”
You can see a horrifying picture of mechanically separated chicken at the following link: http://www.huffingtonpost.com
McDonald’s chicken McNuggets also contain dimethylpolysiloxane, an antifoaming agent composed of the same silicone chemicals used in cosmetic products (http://www.naturalnews.com/032820_Chicken_McNuggets_ingredients.html). A federal judge put it well back in 2003 when he called McNuggets a “McFrankenstein creation of various elements not utilized by the home cook.”

McCruelty and destruction

I overheard some parents recently talking about how their pre-school kids prefer to eat hamburgers and not their vegetables, and how they were getting so chubby.

One of the mothers said, she was also putting on weight because she was eating the junk food too, but it was easier to give in to their kids than fight it. Then one of the parents added, “yeah, McDonalds are so evil”.

But are they really one of the most evil food producers? McDonalds are selling a product that people buy. They are supplying to meet a need (or ‘want’). This is why they have inspired so many rivals.

Are they selling a product which can kill people? Yes. Are they selling a product that does kill BILLIONS of animals. Hell yes. Is the Amazon rainforest being chopped down to make cattle ranches? Yes (may or may not be McDonalds doing it)

If the true cost of a hamburger was reflected in the charge to consumers it would sell for about $100. The pollution, chemical waste, health care costs, environmental degradation, and subsidies of farming from governments, none of these factors are considered in the retail cost.

They do these things because they can. Because it is not illegal, because people continue to buy their product. What ever problems society has with them is a reflection of that society and not a company who is in business to make a profit.

There was a big controversy recently in New Zealand when Weight-Watchers (TM) teamed up with McDonalds to add the Weight-Watchers logo to select items to the menu. And in return Weight-Watchers will promote McDonalds. But Weight-Watchers (TM) food is so full of artificial low fat, fake sugar additives anyway, they seem like perfect partners to me.

But why are animal welfare groups getting upset that they treat the animals badly? They sell dead bodies and all you care about the size of the cages or slaughtering methods?

and Why are parents getting upset that their kids fill up on junk food and not vegetables? There must a reason why they do it.

Why are health officials upset at the levels of saturated fats, salt, sugar, etc in the food? McDonalds sell what they are legally allowed to. In the US President Obama wanted to crack down on the level of salt in food and Glen Beck and other talking heads acted like it was the coming of the Fourth Reich.

Why are busy working parents, on low incomes feeding their family this pretend food? Because healthy food isn’t always, fast, cheap or available, and fast food requires no arguments over who cleans up.

Why do more 3 year-olds recognise the McDonalds golden M symbol than their own name? Is this really McDonalds problem, or a problem with when the legislators allow junk food to be advertised to children? and the parents who feed their children junk.

McDonalds – and fast food corporations like it – are symptoms. They show us what is wrong with the nutritional information available, and the healthy alternative messages not getting out, animal liberation allowing the animal debate to be dominated by welfarists, lack of information about healthy, fast, cheap alternatives, access to nutritious alternatives. What ever problems we have with them and their rivals – from labour practices, to environmental destruction, to animal welfare issues, the ads and toy products aimed at very young children, or even just the food itself – this is what we (as a society) have allowed to happen.

And if we don’t like it, what are we doing besides complaining about it.

…. And in terms of what it is doing to our kids health, At least it’s not a KFC Double-Down – that’s a whole other story.
