Let's Talk About...   


All things unnatural


There's not a person among us who would choose to eat anything unnatural. Humans are not meant to eat plastics and chemicals. And yet, the American public consumes unnatural "food" items every day. Why? Because the Food and Drug Administration lets it happen, and the people - for some unfathomable reason - figure that this government bureaucracy must know best.  


But the FDA makes a habit of allowing such unnatural items in our foods as artificial colors and sweeteners, Bisphenol A, sodium nitrate, MSG, mercury in vaccines, herbicides, aluminum and chlorine. At the same time, the highly utilitarian, and protein-rich plant hemp is outlawed, as is natural, unadulterated, and unpasteurized raw milk.


Consider these sugar substitutes:


Acesulfame potassium, marketed under the names Sunett and Sweet One is found in soft drinks, gelatins, chewing gum, and frozen desserts. This non-nutritive artificial sweetener was first approved by the FDA in 1981.


Approved by the FDA in 1991, Aspartame is marketed as Equal, and NutraSweet and is found in drinks, gum, yogurt, and cough drops. It has been accused of causing everything from weight gain to cancer.


Found in soda, junk food and processed foods of all kinds, high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS) is kind of like corn syrup on steroids. Though it's made from corn syrup, HFCS is made via enzymatic processing to boost the natural syrup's fructose content. HFCS didn't even exist before 1957.


Neotame is a newer sugar replacement on the market. Found in drinks, dairy products, frozen desserts, puddings and fruit juices, it's between 7,000 and 13,000 times sweeter than table sugar depending on what it is added to. It's produced by the same company that makes aspartame.


Saccharin, or Sweet 'n' Low, is found in drinks, canned goods, and candy. Rat studies in the early 1970s found a link between consuming Saccharin and bladder cancer, prompting Congress to mandate in 1981 that all foods containing it bear a warning label, but not that it be taken off the shelves.


Sucralose, or Splenda, is used in fruit drinks, canned fruit, and syrups. It was FDA approved in 1998, although one study showed it may negatively impact the immune system. Sucralose is produced by substituting three chlorine atoms for three hydroxyl groups. Sucralose is not approved for use in most European countries, where national healthcare programs are prominent.


Portland, Ore.-based nutrition instructor and therapist Kathy Eason explained, "Splenda is chlorinated sugar molecule that has been chemically heat treated with 19 chemicals, the last of which is gassed with an industrial pesticide."


The other most prevalent form of unnatural "food" items are of course, genetically modified organisms (GMOs) seeds. These corporately-conceived products are wreaking havoc with people's health.


Every single independent study conducted on the impact of GM foods shows it damages organs, causes infertility, causes immune failure, causes holes in the GI tract, and causes multiple organ system failure.


"The whole concept of genetically modified organism is throwing a monkey wrench in the life of this planet," says "The Seeds of Death: Unveiling the Lies of GMOs. 


When people are made ill from a lifetime of consuming unnatural foods the most affective course of action is to detox the body. The body then must be nourished and replenished by real food - pesticide-free seasonal produce, and fruits, pasture-raised meats, pastured-butter, pure oils, fresh and fermented foods, to name a few.


Taking pharmaceuticals to fix what is already an overabundance of unnatural chemicals in the body is not recommended. If you are taking a pharmaceutical drug, you are not in good vibrant health.

To your health!
