(Health Secrets) Dear MOTHERS, you are the warriors that can bring Monsanto to its knees. If you cook from scratch, buy organic local food, and avoid all GMO ~~ their stocks will plummet and they will disappear. You don’t have to picket or take up arms: all you have to do is learn to cook! Your pots and pans are the weapons that will wield mortal blows to their dastardly schemes.
Let me make this personal, as the corpoRATe killers are making it personal: Kraft’s UK Mac ‘n Cheese product contains paprika for coloring. US Mac ‘n Cheese product contains FD&C Yellow #5 and Yellow #6. Does this make you angry? It would if you knew that Yellow 5 is Tartrazine, a coal tar product and one of the worst artificial colors for your health.
Yellow 5 lowers levels of zinc, which is critical for proper immune functioning. In addition:
• Yellow 5 is known to cause asthma attacks. Asthma is the #1 reason for school absenteeism.
• Tartrazine is banned in Norway and was banned in Austria and Germany until the European Parliament lifted the ban. Studies had shown that tartrazine caused rash, dermatitis, asthma, and runny nose.
• Some anti-depressant medications (SSRI’s) used tartrazine until patients complained. Ironically, tartrazine increases clinical depression and other sensitivities.
• Yellow 5 has caused such severe reactions that the FDA requires that it be noted if it is contained in medication. None of the other certified dyes have this special requirement.
FD&C Yellow #5 contains Benzidine:
• Benzidine, is a chemical that is ranked as one of the most hazardous compounds (worst 10%) to human health.
• Benzidine is known to be a carcinogen, cardiovascular or blood toxicant, gastrointestinal or liver toxicant, immunotoxicant, kidney toxicant, and neurotoxicant.
• Benzidine was one of the first chemicals for which an association of occupational exposure and increased incidence of urinary bladder cancer in humans was reported.
• Many studies have found far more Benzidine in food than the allowed 1 ppb, as much as 270ppb.
FD&C Yellow #6, also called Sunset Yellow, is another coal tar derivative widely used in medications. Sunset Yellow is banned in Norway. Symptoms of reaction include:
• allergic reactions
• abdominal pain
US Kraft Mac ‘n Cheese also contains a form of MSG, whey protein concentrate. MSG is injected into certain lab rats to cause OBESITY. MSG causes migraines, mood swings, violent behavior, depression.
