Guest Blog about the crap that they put in our food
I have just been watching a video on social engineering and how agriculture and the food industry have totally changed the way we eat, for example more processed foods and fast food takeaways. Making people believe they are far too busy to cook and therefore we should eat takeaways and quick processed meals.
Have you noticed the way all of the junk food and processed foods are at eye level in the supermarket and the healthier stuff is hard to find, or even the amount of processed refined foods compared to organic or veg, salad and unprocessed meat and fish.
Something like 75% processed crap and 25% REAL food, lets be clear all the processed foods, which can last for months due to additives and preservatives, are not real food and are all poisoning us slowly.
Even the disparity in Supermarkets over macros, i.e.: loads more carbs than protein or good fats, which makes it very difficult to eat a balanced diet.
There is a picture of the 6 year old MacDonald’s meal. It was the last one sold in Iceland, and it looks the same today as it did when it was ordered in 2009. Full of preservatives which we eat this and give to our kids.
Just think about all the adverts for processed foods, busy mum or dad just getting through the door from work and just too tired to cook: boom big family bucket KFC, order from just eat (UK) and such like, I have done the just eat thing loads myself lol.
Through advertising and marketing we are being socially engineered into eating really bad foods that ARE making us fat, slow, unwell, stupid and we still believe it’s healthy. That’s what the advert says so it must be true: special K is not a flipping health food it’s a processed heavily refined carb, which I wouldn’t feed to my pooch.
We/Food Industry/Agriculture are causing the health epidemic its something like in western countries 70% of the billions spent in the health service are spent treating ailments that are totally preventable, type 2 diabetes, obesity etc. So why is the Government, who know this, not doing something about it? Conspiracy theories concerning pharmaceutical companies, who knows but I am not getting involved.
Watch at least the first part of this video about industry cooking your food “MacDonald’s chips, it’s unbelievable” then read the rest of my blog on the evil crap in your food.

Interestingly foods should go off, and if you spent the next month just eating organic (food without chemicals/preservatives) you would be feeling amazing and most likely any illness or issue would suddenly clear up.
You are what you eat? are you a chemical or are you a human being?
There are growing number desperate individuals with certain Cancers that are starting up organic allotments and just eating chemical free foods, guess what’s happening? in the cases I have read and seen they have totally surpassed the medical life expectancy given by the doctors……STRANGE.
“TIME TO FIND OUT WHATS IN YOUR FOOD”
Ammonium sulfate is a preservative often used in bread. If you’ve ever cleaned with ammonia cleaner you know the smell alone can be vomit inducing, so why are we eating it? In fact most cleaners suggest you don’t breath it in, but mix it with some yeast and call it a roll and we’re all for it. Supposedly it is completely safe in low levels. You may also see this ingredient in your garden fertilizer.
L-cysteine is made from duck feathers or human hair and considered natural protein since it can be digested as an amino acid. It is used in several products from bread to, yep, you guessed it, cookie dough.
Titanium dioxide kind of makes us think that if we consume enough, we’ll probably become The Hulk. Unfortunately, or fortunately, depending on whom you ask, we don’t think that’s the case. It is often used in sunscreen as it can absorb UV rays. You’ll also find it in milk, salad dressings, frosting, and coffee creamer to name a few, leaving your internal organs completely protected against UV exposure.
Butylated hydroxyanisole more commonly known as BHA, is a phenol-based food preservative that serves as an antioxidant for food. It prevents food from going rancid likely at the expense of your internal organs. Due to a recent study that found it causes cancer in laboratory animals, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has labeled BHA as “reasonably anticipated to be a human carcinogen.” Besides your food, you’ll find it in medicines, food packaging and animal feed.
Butylated hydroxytoluene or BHT, is a food preservative similar to BHA that also prevents oils in food from becoming rancid. You’ll also find it in cosmetics, jet fuel, rubber and embalming fluid. Next time you see it on the ingredients label, ask yourself if you’d be willing to take a chug of fuel or, say, embalming fluid. No? Then, you should probably buy something else.
Sodium nitrite and sodium nitrate are commonly used to preserve meat products. It prevents bacteria growth and helps meat retain its red color. In addition, it adds a good flavor to salty meats like bacon. Before you order a BLT, you should know that it is also used in metal coatings, chemical reacting agents for photography and in textile dyes.
Sodium benzoate is a preservative used in acidic liquids such as vinegar, juices or soft drinks. It is also found in food products such as margarine and fast food hamburgers. Sodium benzoate is also used in fireworks and makes a great rocket fuel. Happy 4th of July!
Potassium bromate is most often found in bread products as it improves the quality of flour. Even very small doses can be harmful, and it has been banned in Canada, Europe and even China but not the U.S. Your food label may not include the term but beware of anything that includes “enriched flour,” which most likely contains this toxic substance. While the U.S. still allows this ingredient to be used, many companies including Orowheat and Pepperidge Farm and supermarkets like Whole Foods have banned the use of the additive in their products.
Artificial sweeteners including sucralose, saccharin and sorbitol may be calorie free but that doesn’t mean they don’t have any impact on your body. The thing is, no one is really sure what their impact is, but these chemicals are likely doing more harm than good. In fact some have been shown to actually disrupt your metabolism making it more difficult to lose weight and easier to gain it. They can also cause headaches, dizziness and some studies link them to cancer. Skip the fake stuff and rely on small amounts of natural sugar or fresh fruit to feed your sweet tooth.
Hey that’s enough scare mongering from me, but it is food for thought. Hopefully you watched the video about MacDonald’s chips….CRAZY.
