The Brain-Destroying, Cancer-Causing Ingredient Hidden In Most Of Our Food. Source: www.thetruthaboutcancer.com | Original Post Date: February 21, 2016 – There’s a widespread and silent killer that’s hidden in most foods that is slowly destroying millions (maybe even billions) of people’s health.

The Brain-Destroying, Cancer-Causing Ingredient Hidden In Most Of Our Food

It’s worse for you than alcohol, nicotine and even many drugs. And it’s likely lurking in your kitchen cabinets right now. What is this harmful substance that is so pervasive and unfortunately legal for food manufacturing companies to use? You’ve probably heard of it, but MSG the Silent Killerlikely didn’t know how widespread its use was because it is allowed to be disguised under many different names.

I used to think that MSG was just in Chinese food, but the truth is that it’s actually added to thousands of the foods you and your family regularly eat, especially if you are like most Americans and eat the majority of your food as processed packaged foods or in restaurants.

Lead can accumulate in the body over time. Too much can cause health problems, including delayed mental and physical development and learning deficiencies. Pregnant women, infants and young children especially should avoid exposure to lead. People concerned about blood lead levels should contact their physician or health clinic to ask about testing. Why You Should Avoid Splenda. There are many of us who indulge in artificial sweeteners once in a while—a can of diet soda now and then, perhaps a “guiltless” binge of sugar-free pudding packs—even though we know they may not be so great for us.

Why You Should Avoid Splenda

But, hey, neither is sugar, so how bad can Splenda be? The scientific community has been in favor of or officially “inconclusive,” on sucralose, aka Splenda, for years, even amid the growing anti-artificial chatter. The American Heart Association even stated in 2011 that, with moderate use, artificial sweeteners could assist with weight loss and have a positive effect on the metabolism. However, recent research has caused some of the scientific community to officially turn their backs on Splenda. Specifically, the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) has formally recommended that consumers avoid sucralose altogether. What caused the CSPI to downgrade Splenda from “caution” to “avoid?”

Does the idea of zero calorie sweeteners ever entice you? Analysis Finds Hormone Disruptor Used in Cosmetics in Nearly 50 Different Foods. Washington, D.C. – A new EWG analysis has found propyl paraben, a preservative linked to hormone disruption and not allowed in food sold in the European Union, in nearly 50 U.S. snack foods, including Sara Lee cinnamon rolls, Weight Watchers cakes, Cafe Valley muffins, and La Banderita corn tortillas.

Analysis Finds Hormone Disruptor Used in Cosmetics in Nearly 50 Different Foods

Analysts used EWG Food Scores: Rate Your Plate database, which houses rating information on 82,000 foods and 5,000 ingredients, to determine which foods contain propyl paraben. Click here to see the full list of foods that contain propyl paraben. The findings are significant because a review of the latest scientific research shows that propyl paraben acts as a weak synthetic estrogen and can alter hormone signaling. A recent study by Harvard School of Public Health suggested that exposure to the chemical might be associated with diminished fertility, while another study found that it led to decreased sperm counts in rats.

But who actually second-guesses the safety of their food when approved by organizations like the FDA? And this is exactly the case with the endocrine-disrupting chemical, propyl paraben.

We are eating WHAT?

But when you looked at the package labeling there were no ingredients that would seem to be red flags? Increasingly, thanks to an FDA loophole, food makers use additives and chemicals that they and not the FDA have declared "safe" and the ingredients do not appear on the labels. Sometimes the FDA does not even know they are added to the food products.

It’s just finely ground normal sugar, the crystals pulverized, as the name suggests, into a powder. But to finely dust so many confections in a blanket of sugary whiteness, things get a little more complicated. For one, the fine texture of powdered sugar can cause it to easily clump together, which is why anti-caking agents are commonly used. Then there’s the color issue: Grinding up sugar can make it look a little drab. So a whitening agent is used to make sure those powdered doughnuts gleam. As far as health and doughnuts are concerned, a metal-based additive is probably the last thing that would come to mind when considering eating one. MSGTruth.org.

This minimizes consumption of food additives, some of which are bad for your brain. But most of us, even with the best intentions, eat food that comes in a can or a box at least once in awhile. The FDA allows 3,000+ additives to be used in the US food supply. 2014/07/16/what-are-the-top-4-dangerous-toxins-to-the-brain/WlagXcIMLCtoR6Kv.99.

New Study: Alzheimer's & Aluminum Link Can No Longer Be Ignored

MERCOLA Aluminum has been long known to be neurotoxic, with mounting evidence that chronic exposure is a factor in many neurological diseases, including dementia, autism, and Parkinson’s disease. However, definitive scientific proof is difficult to establish due to the the lack of longitudinal studies, as well as pushback from industries that use aluminum in their products. Despite the shortage of conclusive studies, mounting scientific evidence leaves little room for doubt. Case in point: a new case study from Keele University in the UK unequivocally shows high levels of aluminum in the brain of an individual exposed to aluminum at work, who later died from Alzheimer’s disease. While aluminum exposure has been implicated in Alzheimer’s and a number of other neurological diseases, this case claims to be “the first direct link” between Alzheimer’s disease and elevated brain aluminum following occupational exposure.
