What is Wrong with Food Processing These Days?–How are Non Foods Getting into our Food?—**update: 12/24/07 Christmas Eve!

Weird fast food ingredients

Posted: Nov 19th 2007 5:00PM by Bethany Sanders
Filed under: Food and Nutrition, Healthy Habits,  in the America On Line Black Voices,  food has ingredients that have nothing to do with nutrition or our health.  Yet the article states that the government is aware of it and considers these  non-food items to be consumable.  Is it any wonder that our babies a being born with malformations,  or other medical  issues that have no explanation? 

When I was in 5th grade I became sick with bronchitis.  I was out of school for 45 days that year.  My doctor wanted to take out my tonsils and I cried and pleaded with my mother to save me from such a fate.  My doctor gave me a chance to change my health if I promised to take alot of vitamin C and multivitamins.  I began to do as my mother was instructed by the doctor. 

But I soon found that swallowing vitamins was abit difficult for me.  So when I was home sick again my mother was giving me this group of vitamins and then she looked under my bed and found all of the vitamins on the floor (under my bed).  My mother took me back to the doctor and I was given a warning that I would be having my tonsils out if I did not comply with the doctors orders and take my vitamins.  My mother began to crush my vitamins and put them in yogurt for me.  Uggggghhhhh!   She would mix the vitamins with honey.  I was so sick of being sick and tired as a kid. 

I even had to have my nose corterized because of heavy nose bleeds.  I remember doctor visits and pain, and difficulty breathing.   Thank goodness I was always playing music, and drawing.  I had a great life except for my health.   Once  the vitamins began to help I spent less time home and the threat of the doctor began to fade.  That seemed easy enough to solve. 

But,  what do you do nowadays?  What type of vitamin do you take  to fight the effects of the non food/non edible  ingredients that I am about to list that were highlighted in the above article?  Why are things falling to the the VATS of meat being processed these days?  How is it that food we eat has chemicals that are not naturally found in nature?  Who is using our food processing plants for other purposes it seems?  This is becoming more and more scary!

For example,  according to the article “Weird Fast Food Ingredients,”  by Bethany Sanders the following items are not for normal consumption:

  • titanium dioxide: used in products like paint and sunscreen
  • azodicarbonamide: a respiratory sensitizer banned in Australia
  • propylene glycol: used as a pesticide
  • sodium phosphate: a foaming agent
  • dimethylpolysiloxane: used in caulk and adhesives
  • MSG
  • hidden trans fats

Though the FDA calls these additives “generally regarded as safe” for human consumption, the fact remains that they aren’t food. ( p.1)

My mother had discovered  Shakely Food Supplements from a fellow church member when we attended Massapequa Tabernacle just after I turned 18 years old.  The Shakley food supplements were excellent.  I felt more energy!   The founder of the company had suffered a radiation injury and had suffered many years. 

 He had decided to try to create a food supplement to help his rapidly deterioating conditon of his left arm and side.  He,  Dr. Shakley had created cold pressed food supplements.  I was having the bronchitis and still always very tired.  The vitamins that I had taken as a child prevented me from having my tonsils out.  But as a young woman I still have severe pain during my menses.  I would lay doubled over,  I would vomit,  have hot and cold sweats for atleast two to three days at the begining of my periods!  So the bronchitis had eased,  and then my periods took over in claiming my happiness.  I had dreaded my monthly.  I would cringe when I even just thought of the pain.  I was afraid of what having a baby would feel like –especially since I could barely take having my monthly!  Ugh!  and Double UGH!!!!  —But along came the Shakley Food Supplements to the rescue!  

I took an alfalpha,  multiplex,  and  several other nutritional  supplements.  I became a walking advertisement!  I began to feel very healthy indeed.  I even sold Shakely to one of my college professors!  I lost track of my contact with Shakley….but I will look them up today.  Because I have been very sick the past few years.  After reading the ingredients in the WEIRD FAST FOOD article by Sanders I will definitely look toward Shakely nutritional supplements again! 

The food industry is being attacked by an unknown.  All I know is that I have to give my body the nutrition that it is not getting in the food that I have been consuming.  Okay,  you could say that this stuff is only being discussed about fast food.  But what about the uncooked RED MEAT–that is being RECALLED?  

What about last years sicknesses based on E-COLI found on SPINICH?  From MEAT to Vegetables—processed items that are uncooked are just as dangerous recently as the MAD COW disease,  and other potenticially fatal illnesses!  What to do?  What to do?  I am going to really get back to Shakely.  This is not an advertisement.  This is my personal expeience. 

But you can talk to you doctor and see what he would recommend.   ALWAYS…..ALWAYS……ALWAYS……TALK TO YOUR DOCTOR—–TALK TO YOUR DOCTOR ABOUT ANYTHING YOU WANT TO DO WITH YOUR HEALTH AND YOUR BODY!  PLEASE DO NOT DOCTOR YOURSELF!  TALK TO YOUR DOCTOR! 

 My doctors have told me about my general condition and specific conditions.  I know what I have been directed to do.  So I can state my personal condition and how to address it. 

But always,  always…..talk to your Doctor. 

Also read all LABELS  and show any supplements to your doctor before you take over the counter  vitamins.  NEVER–EVER—TAKE ANYTHING IN YOUR HEALTH REGIMINE WITHOUT CONSULTING YOUR DOCTOR! 

SELF MEDICATION CAN BE FATAL.  —-ALWAYS TALK TO YOUR DOCTOR.—AND GET SECOND AND THIRD OPINIONS!

I would like to talk about  weight loss too.  My weight is 270.  Yep!  I’m a big girl!  But it is not a healthy weight for me.  I need to lose more than a hundred pounds.  I just have not decided the method yet. 

***************************************I have to cut this blog short right now….but I will be back after work and finish my discussion on weight loss and the options.  I personally know of two woment who had the surgery.  I will tell you what  they have told me.  I will tell you what I think of it too.  For now  write to you later!—Riveroflifelisajoy!***********************************************************
