Toxins in our food
Have you ever heard the phrase:
‘You are what you eat?”
Consider that as you consider what is in your food.
Because most of today’s food is made of wood glue, antifreeze, plastic, and chemicals.
In fact, with a lot of the processed food out there today, the ants won’t even eat it.
Look online. Much of todays food won’t even rot or decay.
Do you want to know why? It’s because it IS NOT FOOD.
This is done to increase profits and shelf life.
But the problem is, your body can’t digest it. Your body stores it.
And in the process it causes inflammation, illness, and addiction.
Have you even wondered why there is more cancer now than ever before?
It is due to your food, and the chemicals all around us.
So, we here at Hodos-Online want to help you to know what to watch for.
For starters, we should all be watching our intake of refined sugars, and bleached white flour.
We should all be getting away from the toxic chemical soup that we call soft drinks.
And we should all be aware of the food tricks that the food industry plays with us.
Here's a trick food companies use to deceive us:
Ingredient labels must list the most prominent ingredients first,
so the company uses 3 or 4 different forms of sugar to distribute them farther down the label,
like this: "Whole grain wheat, sugar, corn syrup, corn syrup solids..."
This way, the first ingredients looks like "whole grain wheat"
when, in reality, the cereal might be over fifty percent sugars!
Be careful when you read your labels.
Most of what is listed is not food, and most of how it is listed is deceptive.
As you consider eating at a restaurant, is gets even worse. Most restaurants buy what they can get as inexpensive as possible, and these foods are highly processed to have a longer shelf life.
The table below shows common food toxins to watch out for:
This powdery additive is made from cotton or wood pulp. It is basically wood glue to help products hold their form. Found not only in food, but also in toothpaste, shampoo, paper, detergent, and laxatives.
Highly processed liquid sugar with the chemical solvent glutaraldehyde and mercury. It is linked to diabetes, obesity and mood disorders. Used in thousands of grocery items, especially corn syrup
Oils modified to make them stable at room temperature. This creates trans fatty acids and increases the risk of blocked arteries, and thickens the blood. It is found in most vegetable shortenings.
Acid used in sodas to dissolve add to the fizzy-ness of the soda. Phosphoric acid will eat steel nails and is used to etch rocks and clean rust off battleships. It depletes the calcium in your system and destroys tooth enamel.
Liquid used in the automotive industry to winterize RVs. Also used to make the fake blueberries and fruits in muffins and breads. (Combined with artificial color and corn syrup)
Plain white salt promotes disease and death. Real salt, such as pink Himalayan salt, is loaded with trace minerals that prevent disease, cancer, and diabetes. White salt is terrible for your health.
Cancer-causing red chemical added to nearly all processed meats. Linked to brain tumors, pancreatic, and colon cancers. It is a poison used to make meats look fresh.
Protein source used in "protein bars,". It is the "junk protein" of the food industry made from genetically modified soybeans and subjected to hexane, a chemical solvent that can literally explode.
Artificial chemical sweetener sold as Splenda which contains a chlorine atom. Researchers have found that artificial sweeteners make people fat by actually promoting weight gain.
Bleached, nutritionally-deficient byproduct of cane processing. During sugar cane processing. Lacks all minerals and vitamins of Blackstrap molasses. White sugar promotes diabetes, obesity, mood disorders and nutritional deficiencies.
