Fast Food Is Really “Filth” Food

Here are some of the secrets the fast-food industry doesn’t want you to know. And for good reason… you’d never eat their garbage again if you knew this.

I’ll get to the “gross stuff,” but first, you need to know these facts about FAST FOODS today…

Ever notice how different parts of a fast-food meal kinda taste the same? The burger, the fries, the onion rings, even the shake—they all taste like “fast food.” That’s because they’re all calibrated to appeal to our taste buds in a way that inspires us to keep eating—not too meaty, not too vegetable-like.

New Artificial Sweetener Neotame…Even More Toxic Than Aspartame

Neotame

is TOXIC…

It’s marketed as Equal and Nutrasweetaspartame is a well-known neurotoxic sweetener used in many food products.

This cancer-causing artificial sweetener is threatening the health of populations worldwide, and has even been found to be created using genetically modified bacteria.

While most individuals know about aspartame and its dangers, there is another, lesser known sweetener in the food supply that many people don’t know about –

Neotame.

Neotame:

An Unknown Artificial Sweetener Lurking in Your Food

Introduced by biotech giant Monsanto, Neotame was created as a new sweetener and flavor enhancer to be used in food products.

On July 9, 2002, the United States Food and Drug Administration decided that Neotame’s safety and functionality made it available for consumption, thus resulting in its approval.

What’s concerning is, while Neotame has a similar structure to aspartame, the chemicals used in its manufacturing process seem to make the sweetener even more toxic than aspartame.

Both aspartame and Neotame are made up of substances which metabolize into a highly toxic poison known as formaldehyde.

In addition, they contain an exctiotoxic amino acid that agitates, thereby damaging nerves. Although very similar to aspartame in chemical structure, Neotame has one chemical added that aspartame does not possess – 3-dimethylbutyl, which just so happens to be on the Environmental Protection Agency’s most hazardous chemical list.

HolisticMed reports:

Neotame has similar structure to aspartame – except that, from it’s structure, appears to be even more toxic than aspartame. This potential increase in toxicity will make up for the fact that less will be used in diet drinks.

Like aspartame, some of the concerns include gradual neurotoxic and immunotoxic damage from the combination of the formaldehyde metabolite (which is toxic at extremely low doses) and the excitotoxic amino acid.

Neotame’s manufacturing process involves combining aspartame with 3,3-dimethylbutyraldehyde, a chemical categorized as a highly flammable irritant.

The largest argument for the use of this sweetener, as well as aspartame, is that they battle against obesity, but it is well known that sweeteners like aspartame actually lead to obesity.

The worst part? Even if you wanted to avoid this sweetener, you may find it impossible to do so. Not only are there no labeling rules for Neotame, but it is even included in the USDA certified organic food! 

So what is the solution? If you are trying to avoid Neotame, the best thing to do is buy all organic items that have no or very little ingredients. The less ingredients, the less chance Neotame could be hiding out.

Given the history behind Monsanto and its other creations – Agent Orange, Roundup, and GMO crops – it seems quite clear that their Neotame is no exception for consumption.

Strawberries As A Home Remedy

Strawberries

sure surprised me…

Many foods are valuable sources of antioxidants. But researchers have recently ranked the 50 best antioxidant sources among commonly eaten foods and found

strawberries

to be quite exceptional.

When total antioxidant capacity was measured,

strawberries

ranked 27th best among U.S. foods. In addition, when only fruits were considered, strawberries came out 4th among all fruits (behind blackberries, cranberries, and raspberries).

Since many foods (for example, spices and seasonings) are seldom consumed in amounts as large as 3.5 ounces, researchers also looked at common serving sizes for all foods and their total antioxidant capacity.

In this evaluation, strawberries came out 3rd among all U.S. foods including spices, seasonings, fruits, and vegetables!

Only blackberries and walnuts scored higher in total antioxidant capacity.

Research has shown strawberries to be a surprisingly fragile, perishable, and delicate fruit.

Food scientists recently took a close look at storage time, storage temperature, storage humidity, and degree of strawberry ripeness and found significant differences between different types of strawberry storage. On average, studies show 2 days as the maximal time for strawberry storage without major loss of vitamin C and polyphenol antioxidants.

It’s not that strawberries become dangerous to eat or invaluable after 2 days. It’s just that more storage time brings along with it substantially more nutrient loss.

In terms of humidity, 90-95% has been shown optimal. Most refrigerators will average a much lower humidity (between 80-90%).

Because air circulation inside the fridge can lower humidity, you may want to give your strawberries more storage humidity by putting them in your refrigerator’s cold storage bins.

If your fridge does not have storage bins, you can use a sealed container for refrigerator storage of your strawberries.

Optimal temperature for strawberry storage over a 2-day period has been found to be relatively cold, (36F) (2C).

Public health organizations only recommend refrigerator temperatures of 40F (4.4C) as the maximum safe level for food storage. But, if you are storing sizable amounts of fruits and vegetables, including strawberries in your refrigerator, you may want to set your refrigerator to a lower than maximum temperature setting in the range of 36-38F (2-3C).

In terms of ripeness, recent studies have found that both under ripeness and over ripeness can have an unexpectedly large impact on the phytonutrient content of strawberries, especially their antioxidant polyphenols.

Fortunately, optimal strawberry ripeness can be judged by color. Consume your strawberries when their pinkish red color is most vibrant.

Improved blood sugar regulation has been a long-standing area of interest in research on strawberries and health.

However, scientists have recently discovered a fascinating relationship between intake of strawberries, table sugar, and blood sugar levels. You might not expect this blood sugar spike to be reduced by simultaneous consumption of strawberries! Yet that’s exactly what researchers have discovered.

With the equivalent of approximately one cup of fresh strawberries (approximately 150 grams), blood sugar elevations from simple sugar intake can be reduced. Researchers have speculated that polyphenols in strawberries play a major role in helping regulate blood sugar response.

This finding is great news for healthy persons wanting to maintain healthy blood sugar levels, and also for persons with type 2 diabetes who enjoy fresh strawberries and want to enjoy them on a regular basis.

Given their amazing combination of phytonutrients, including anthocyanins, ellagitannins, flavonols, terpenoids, and phenolic acids, it’s not surprising to find increasing research interest in the anti-inflammatory properties of strawberries.

It’s exciting to see this remarkable fruit lowering level of inflammatory markers like C-reactive protein (CRP) when consumed several days per week, in everyday amounts of approximately one cup.

Research has now shown that several blood markers for chronic, unwanted inflammation, can be improved by regular intake of strawberries.

One study showed, consumption of strawberries did not display anti-inflammatory benefits until strawberries were consumed at least 3 times per week.

This research is why we recommend inclusion of berries at least 3-4 times per week in your overall fruit consumption.

The Best Whole Foods And Health Drinks Are Not Sold in

Health Food

Stores

Locating whole foods and health drinks to feel better, look younger, or have more energy is an excellent idea. However, finding products in usual

health food

stores that create real results is an exercise in futility for many serious shoppers.

What is the secret to health and beauty for attractive celebrities and superstar athletes? Their secret is that they use better quality nutritional products which so advanced they cannot be sold in the usual places. These stars know they must have access to the best products, different from the average consumer if they desire to maintain youthful looks and vitality. Other people mistakenly think they cannot afford the same secret, better quality whole foods and health drinks used by the rich and famous, but that is far from the truth. You just have to know where to look.

An online health food store is a good place to start to uncover high quality whole foods and health drinks because there you can gather information to construct the foundation for a healthy life. You can locate whole foods and health drinks that are not sold in retail stores. Then, it is easier to make an informed decision rather than stumbling through a health food store without all the knowledge necessary to make the most intelligent choices.

More and more people now realize that they have to take care of their bodies for financial reasons as well as living a long, healthy life. This naturally leads to more productive habits, like focusing on whole foods and natural health drinks instead of fast foods and sodas. Among the monetary benefits are substantial savings in medical costs and more nutritional value for each and every dollar.

To obtain more value from the health and wellness products you buy, here are 5 tips:

1. Consume more whole foods

2. Select natural health drinks, not sodas, vitamin waters, or dangerous energy drinks

3. Focus on environmentally friendly personal care products like soap and shampoo

4. Seek a diet closer to nature – Natural foods do not include ingredients such as artificial flavors and sweeteners, hydrogenated oils or isolated vtiamins.

5. Shop with responsible manufacturers – Stop giving money to corporations making products with questionable substances, trans fats, hydrogenated oils, preservatives, artificial sweeteners, excess sugar and sodium, high fructose corn syrup, genetically modified ingredients and toxic chemicals.

Shop differently, from companies who use more natural ingredients and environmentally responsible manufacturing processes. Again, you will not easily find them locally, but whole foods and health drinks made by responsible manufacturers can be purchased at an online health food store. Just remember, shopping in the same old places for nutritional products will give you the same old results. Instead, search the world wide web to find healthier alternatives that the average shopper has not yet stumbled upon for whole foods and health drinks.
