The "yoga mat" chemical azodicarbonamide has been banned in the U.K. because of a risk that it causes cancer. Let’s face it, a chemical that is used to make shoe soles and yoga mats cannot be good for the 500 foods that it’s used in. I’m beginning to think that instead of eating food made for humans we should start eating animal food. It might just be safer than the food produced for human consumption.
Via Fox News:
I guess the producers of the foods that we eat, are not deterred by the damage that some of these chemicals can do to a person’s health. Just as long as it looks good, and tastes good, and sells well. Money is clearly the first thing on their minds. We can’t even trust the meat that we eat because of what’s given to animals to make them fatter. Cows are given things to produce more milk and chickens to lay more eggs. Then things are taken out of the milk and added to it. Margarine was supposed to be for animals and it ended up being for human consumption. Then there's all the salt that is in our food, and this garbage aspartame and whatever else. Our food just doesn't seem safe or natural at all.
They say sugar is no good for you so they come out with aspartame. It seems to be more dangerous than sugar. These so call scientists that I’ve blogged about add to the confusion. One group claims that if you’re a tall person your IQ would be higher than a short person an also if you are old age you tend to be a grouchy person. No wonder this world has gone to the dogs with some of these stupid things that people of 'intelligence' will say just to be mentioned on the news or to be paid for it.
Let me add one last point. Thee is a lot of conspiracy theory about the government and agri-business. Much of it is crazy talk, but just because that is the case it doesn't mean there are some elements of truth or at least concern in what the government allows the food industry to get away with. These people might have vivid imaginations but I would say that it doesn't mean they don't have some valid concerns about real issues. Food safety is something fundamentally important to everyone.
Giant agribusiness companies are slowly and quietly spreading their scientifically altered seeds to so many farms that nearly half of all foods on supermarket shelves now contain some ingredient that has had its DNA tampered with by science.
Well I guess I’m finished because I’m a grouchy old man and not tall enough to have a high IQ. I didn’t know I was in that bad of a shape but at 79 years old I finally found out what some of these so called scientists think about people like me.
