Avoid These Hidden Sources Of MSG In Foods

As discussed previously, the glutamate (MSG) manufacturers and the processed food industries are always on a quest to disguise the MSG added to food. Below is a partial list of the most common names for disguised MSG. Remember, the powerful excitotoxins, aspartate and L-cystine, are also frequently added to foods. According to FDA rules these require NO LABELING AT ALL.

Food Additives that ALWAYS contain MSG
Monosodium Glutamate
Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein
Hydrolyzed Protein
Hydrolyzed Plant Protein
Plant Protein Extract
Sodium Caseinate
Calcium Caseinate
Yeast Extract
Textured Protein (Including TVP)
Autolyzed Yeast
Hydrolyzed Oat Flour
Corn Oil

Food Additives That FREQUENTLY Contain MSG
Malt Extract
Malt Flavoring
Bouillon
Broth
Stock
Flavoring
Natural Flavors/Flavoring
Natural Beef Or Chicken Flavoring
Seasoning
Spices

Food Additives That MAY Contain MSG Or Excitotoxins
Carrageenan
Enzymes
Soy Protein Concentrate
Soy Protein Isolate
Whey Protein Concentrate
Protease Enzymes of various sources can release excitotoxin amino acids from food proteins.

Aspartame
Aspartame is a sweetener made from two amino acids, phenylalanine and the excitotoxin aspartate. It should be avoided at all costs. It is implicated in everything from blindness to headaches to convulsions. Sold under dozens of brand names such as NutraSweet and Equal, aspartame breaks down within 20 minutes at room temperature into several primary toxic and dangerous ingredients:
1. DKP (diketopiperazine) (When ingested, converts to a near duplicate of
a powerful brain tumor causing agent)
2. Formic Acid (ant venom)
3. Formaldehyde (embalming fluid)
4. Methanol (causes blindness…extremely dangerous substance)

Common Examples
Diet soft drinks, sugar free gums, sugar free Kool Aid, Crystal Light, childrens’ medications, and thousands of other products claiming to be ‘low calorie’, ‘diet’, or ‘sugar free’.

A Final Note…
Dr. Blaylock recounted a meeting with a senior executive in the food additive industry who told him point blank that these excitotoxins are going to be in our food no matter how many name changes are necessary.

Excitotoxins are a terrible threat to our health, yet the government allows these known (proven) toxins to be added to our food.

Food Politics

“Food politics underlie all politics in the United States. There is no industry more important – more fundamentally linked to our well-being and future well-being of our children. Like manufacturing cigarettes or building weapons, making food is very big business”.

This book is written by Dr. Marion Nestle, professor and chair of the Department of Nutrition & Food Studies, New York University.  She has served as a nutrition policy advisor to the Department of Health and Human Services and Science Advisory Committees to the Department of Agriculture and FDA.
In this book, Dr. Nestle revealed that:
The “food industry must do everything possible to persuade people to eat more – more food, more often and in larger portions “ – no matter what it does to our well being.
“I eventually came to the conclusion that food companies – just like companies that sell cigarettes, pharmaceuticals or any other commodity – routinely place the needs of stockholders over considerations of public health.”
“Food companies will make and market any product that sells, regardless of its nutritional value or its effects on health.”
“Health companies are not health or social service agencies and nutrition becomes a factor in corporate thinking only when it can help sell food.”
Under the guise of “objective” scientific research, food companies suggest to us that their products are healthy. But according to Dr. Nestle, “when it comes to the mass production and consumption of food … decisions made are driven by economics – not science, not common sense and certainly not health.”
“They expand sales by marketing directly to children, members of minority groups and people in developing countries – whether or not the products are likely to improve people’s diets.”
“Like cigarette companies, food companies co-opt food and nutrition experts by supporting professional organizations and research.”
“It is in the interest of food companies to have people believe that there is no such thing as a “good” food (except when it is theirs); that there is no such thing as “bad” food; that all foods (especially theirs) can be incorporated into healthful diets; and that balance, variety and moderation are the keys to healthful diets – which means that no advice to restrict intake of their particular product is appropriate … If people are confused about nutrition, they  will more likely accept such claims at face value”.
“They lobby Congress to eliminate regulations perceived as unfavourable, they pressed federal regulatory agencies not to enforce such regulations and when they don’t like regulatory decisions, they file lawsuits.”

Why Do We Need to Fight for Our Health?

Read what these people said … 

JOHN HAMMELL, President, International Advocates of Health Freedom wrote:
“Harvey Wiley, M.D., created the FDA with only the best intentions of safeguarding the public health.” 

But in this book, you will learn from Byron Richards that the “FDA has abandoned its public health mission and is acting like a trade association for pharmaceutical interests to protect them from unwanted competition while taking their cues from Wall Street.” 

DIANE MILLER, J.O., Director of Law and Public Policy, National Health Freedom Action wrote:
“Americans are dying by the thousands at the hands of drug companies and government regulators. Americans are putting their trust in places they should not be putting their trust.”
“Science that could benefit mankind was converted to an instrument of control and death. It started with moral weakness in the scientists and business executive who place profit above human life.”

“Doctors are challenged in this book to return to their calling of being “thinking doctors” instead of numb and ignorant robots handing pills out that will change a patient on paper but that will damage a patient’s chance of ever regaining true health.”

JONATHAN EMORD, of Emord Associate wrote:
“If there is one lesson that readers should take away from (this book) more than any other, it is to reject the commonly held view that the FDA is a great defender of the public health. Rather, more times than not FDA is a defender of the economic interests of the largest  drug companies in the world.

Be on the Safe Side: Avoid Food Products from North America

“History has many records of crimes against humanity, which were also justified by dominant commercial interests and governments of the day. Despite protests from citizens, social justice for the common good was eroded in favour of private profits. Today, patenting of life forms and the genetic engineering which it stimulates, is being justified on the grounds that it will benefit society, especially the poor, by providing better and more food and medicine. But in fact, by monopolising the ‘raw’ biological materials, the development of other options is deliberately blocked. Farmers therefore, become totally dependent on the corporations for seeds ~ Professor Wangari Mathai.

In the website: Disabled World, Mavis Butcher wrote:  It’s virtually impossible to provide a complete list of genetically modified food (GM food) in the United States because there aren’t any laws for genetically modified crops! Some estimates say as many as 30,000 different products on grocery store shelves are “modified.”

List of genetically modified foods – watch out and try to avoid them:

1. Soy products – half of North America’s soy crop is genetically engineered! Such foods including, soy beverages, tofu, soy oil, soy flour, lecithin. Other products may include breads, pastries, snack foods, baked products, fried products, edible oil products and special purpose foods.

2. Rapeseed in Canada, the crop was renamed “canola” (Canadian oil). Avoid Canola oil! And canola oil may be found in edible oil products, fried foods, and baked products, snack foods.

3. Honey can be produced from GM crops. Some Canadian honey comes from bees collecting nectar from GM canola plants.

4. Cotton. It is also considered a food because the oil can be consumed. Products may include blended vegetable oils, fried foods, baked foods, snack foods, edible oil products, and smallgoods casings.

5. Rice – Genetically modified to contain high amounts of Vitamin A. Rice containing human genes is to be grown in the US.

6.  Sugar cane. A large percentage of sweeteners used in processed food actually comes from corn, not sugar cane or beets. Genetically modified sugar cane is regarded so badly by consumers at the present time that it could not be marketed successfully.

7. Tomatoes.

8. Corn and corn products like corn oil, flour, sugar or syrup. May include snack foods, baked goods, fried foods, edible oil products, confectionery, special purpose foods, and soft drinks.

9. Sweet corn. Officials from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have said that  thousands of tonnes of genetically engineered sweetcorn have made their way into the human food supply chain, even though the produce has been approved only for use in animal feed. Recently Monsanto, a biotechnology food producer, said that about half of the USA’s sweetcorn acreage has been planted with genetically modified seed this year.

10. Potatoes, and may include snack foods, processed potato products and other processed foods containing potatoes.

11. Flax – More and more food products contain flax oil and seed because of their excellent nutritional properties. No genetically modified flax is currently grown. An herbicide-resistant GM flax was introduced in 2001, but was soon taken off the market because European importers refused to buy it.

12. Papaya – The first virus resistant papayas were commercially grown in Hawaii in 1999. Transgenic papayas now cover about one thousand hectares, or three quarters of the total Hawaiian papaya crop. Monsanto, donated technology to Tamil Nadu Agricultural University, Coimbatore, for developing a papaya resistant to the ringspot virus in India.

13. Squash – (yellow crookneck) – Some zucchini and yellow crookneck squash are also GM but they are not popular with farmers.

14. Red-hearted chicory – (radicchio) – Chicory (Cichorium intybus var. foliosum) is popular in some regions as a salad green., Today there is no genetically modified chicory on the market.

15. Tobacco -The company Vector has a GMO tobacco being sold under the brand of Quest® cigarettes in the U.S.

16. Meat and dairy products usually come from animals that have eaten GM feed.

17. Peas.

18. Vegetable Oil – Most generic vegetable oils and margarines used in restaurants and in processed foods in North America are made from soy, corn, canola, or cottonseed. Unless these oils specifically say “Non-GMO” or “Organic,” it is probably genetically modified.

19. Sugarbeets – May include any processed foods containing sugar.

20. Dairy Products – about 22 percent of cows in the U.S. are injected with recombinant (genetically modified) bovine growth hormone (rbGH).

21. Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is often made from corn, vitamin E is usually made from soy. Vitamins A, B2, B6, and B12 may be derived from GMOs as well as vitamin D and vitamin K may have “carriers” derived from GM corn sources, such as starch, glucose, and maltodextrin.

How can the public make informed decisions about genetically modified (GM) foods when there is so little information about its safety?

QUICK DANGER CHECK LIST

Be Healthy, Say NO to GMOs – genetically modified food

Árpád Pusztai, Ph.D., a Hungarian born scientist, has spent many years working for the Rowett Research Institute (RRI) in Aberdeen, Scotland, researching the nutritive values of plant lectins and genetically modified (GM) foods.

Dr. Pusztai lost his job with RRI for expressing his opinions on the safety of genetically modified foods in a TV interview in 1998. Read more about this honest man.

Over his years of extensive research, Pusztai finds that many GM crops have already been approved to be released on the market that may increase the toxicity of allergens in the crop, or contain unpredictable toxins themselves Such carcinogenic and/or mutagenic toxins may be created in GM crops. Many crops have not been properly tested to determine if they are safe for human or animal consumption .

According to Dr. Arpad Pusztai, genetically modified (GM) crops and food are being grown and consumed by the public, even though:

•  there is little scientific study about their health risks
•  safety test technology is inadequate to assess potential harm
•  they can carry unpredictable toxins
•  they may increase the risk of allergenic reactions

Say NO to GMOs – genetically modified food

Jeffrey Smith is one of the world’s leading consumer advocate promoting healthier non-GMO choices. He wrote this book: Seeds of Deception: Exposing Industry and Government Lies About the Safety of the Genetically Engineered Foods You’re Eating.

Read this book and you will learn that eating such “experimental food” is to gamble with your health and life.
They – the Vested Interests and government agencies said the GMOs are safe for human consumption. Know that this is a big lie based on pseudo-science arguments and  bad research.

In this book the author tells you that:

•  When a top scientist tried to alert the public about his alarming discoveries, he lost his job and was silenced with threats of a lawsuit.
•  Scientists were offered bribes or threatened. Evidence was stolen. Data was omitted or distorted.
•  Government employees who complained were harassed, stripped of responsibilities or fired.
•  Laboratory rats fed a GM crop developed stomach lesions and 7 out of 40 died within 2 weeks. The crop was approved without further tests.

The report by a panel of experts of the Royal Society of Canada said this:

•  It is scientifically unjustifiable to presume that GM foods are safe.
•  There is a need for safety testing, looking for short- and long-term human toxicity, allergenicity and other health effects.
•  The risks in biotechnology are undeniable, and they stem from the unknowable in science and commerce. It is prudent to recognize and address those risks, not compound them by overly optimistic or fool hardy behavior (Quoting the editors of the UK’s Nature Biotechnology).

On this issue, in the US, the attitude is — the Government by the Industry, for the Industry. Those with authority turned a blind eye to the whole issue of human safety placing more emphasis on money making by the Vested Interests.

Henry Miller who was in charge of biotechnology at the US-FDA from 1979 to 1994, was quoted to have said: “the US government agencies have done exactly what big agribusiness has asked them to do and told them to do.”

The US government would not require any safety tests or any special labels identifying the foods as genetically engineered.

Geneticist David Suzuki was quoted to have said: “Any politician or scientist who tells you these products are safe is either very stupid or lying. The experiments have simply not been done.”
