Franken-Food Additives Poisoning the Masses
2011 12 05

Our ancestors used salt to preserve meats and fish, added herbs and spices to sharpen the flavor of foods, preserved fruit with sugar, and pickled cucumbers in vinegar. They also had their own gardens, raised their own livestock, ate local and in season. However, they were not eating the Franken-foods of today, including genetically modified food, chemically preserved food, flavor “enhanced” food, sugar filled food, fortified food and hormone injected food. They certainly weren’t eating processed foods, filled with additives and stripped of nutrients. I think it’s safe to assume that they ate much better than we do today. How backwards have we gone that we now must pay more money for organic, chemical free and hormone free food? Who are these psychopaths coming up with the ideas to modify and poison our food? The FDA and the EFSA cannot be trusted. They lie. They don’t care about you.
Did you know that many retired FDA officials go to work as special advisors to the pharmaceutical and food industries? Federal agencies like the FDA, which were created to protect consumers, often behave like branch offices of companies like Monsanto, which they are supposed to regulate. We should all know about the horror of Monsanto by now.
The FDA approved irradiated foods, which become radioactive as a result of processing. Dr. Gayle Eversole says, “Food irradiation exposes food to the equivalent of 30 million chest X-rays. Irradiation creates new chemicals in foods called radiolytic products. Some of these products are known cancer-causing substances (like benzene in irradiated beef). Others are unique to the irradiation process and no one knows what effects these have on human health. Irradiation destroys essential vitamins and nutrients that are naturally present in food. No studies have been done to show that a long-term diet of irradiated foods is safe. Safer, well-tested alternatives to irradiation exist.” Wow, what an amazing breakthrough FDA! You sure care about us and the environment. Yet they’ll go on hiding under the cloak of concern and safety for the public.
The FDA has no definition for “natural” used on food labels and continues to be extremely sinister and sneaky by labeling MSG under many obscure names. Why? These people are psychotic and want to poison the masses.
The European Food Safety Authority isn’t off the hook either. According to the candid confession of Dr. Herman Koeter, former EFSA director who resigned in 2008, the EFSA was about to announce to the world that aspartame is a deadly neurotoxin, unsafe for humans in any form. But eleven of the “experts” had connections with the aspartame industry. Somehow the evidence was “lost.” EFSA declared this chemical poison is safe as rain. Safe for babies, safe for children, safe for pregnant mothers, safe for diabetics, safe for everybody! Excellent work EFSA! You really care about what matters most.
This article is intended to bring awareness about dangerous food additives. Like in the 1985 movie Brazil, where everyone orders food according to a number, instead of saying what it is, it doesn’t seem so far off from food labeling today.
If you live in the European Union, you’ve probably noticed the letter E followed by a number on a label of a food item. This identifies food additives (e.g., sweeteners, preservatives, stabilizers). Additives receive an E number (E for Europe), simplifying communication about food additives in the list of ingredients across the different languages of the EU. E-numbers are also encountered on food labeling in other jurisdictions, including the Cooperation Council for the Arab States of the Gulf, Australia, New Zealand and Israel. They are increasingly, though still rarely, found on North American packaging, especially in Canada on imported European products.
It’s time to become a hawk reading food labels at the grocery store. Your physical body, mind and soul depend upon it.
If you live in the EU, you’ll see hundreds of different E-numbers. Most are toxic and will make you sick in time. Only eat from the following below, which come from natural sources. We’ll agree that the definition of natural is, produced by nature. (It was a shorter list to note the ok’s vs. the bad. For the USA list scroll down.)

“Everyone knows that some people get reactions after eating the food ingredient monosodium glutamate --reactions that include migraine headaches, upset stomach, fuzzy thinking, diarrhea, heart irregularities, asthma, and/or mood swings. What many don’t know, is that more than 40 different ingredients contain the chemical in monosodium glutamate (processed free glutamic acid) that causes these reactions. The following list of ingredients that contain processed free glutamic acid has been compiled over the last 20 years from consumers’ reports of adverse reactions and information provided by manufacturers and food technologists”- truthinlabeling.org

The project of compiling a list of toxic ingredients has been daunting, aggravating and extremely disappointing because we face the fact that we are being deliberately poisoned and lied to. None of these ingredients are necessary. Only psychotics (or aliens who have infiltrated our food industry in order to kill us off) deem them necessary. As Jack LaLanne said "If man made it, don’t eat it." I question if mankind is even behind this because these chemical processes are so alien. This must run deeper than greed and availability.
Since not every toxic food additive is contained on these lists, remember a general rule while reading food labels. If you don’t know what it is, don’t eat it and the fewer ingredients the better. Even then, we must do some digging to verify that the foods we buy have not been genetically modified, including soy, wheat germ, maize, cottonseed and rice. You can always write the food manufacturer and ask! Make a list of ingredients to avoid and carry it with you when you go grocery shopping.
Make a lifestyle change and eat real, organic, hormone free and GMO free food. Support local farmers and companies who distribute organic food. They need our support! If you eat meat, know your local butchers so you can ask questions about how the animals are treated. You can discover ways to mix and match and spice up your menu with ingredients Mother Earth has already provided.
