Foodfight!
Posted by Bob Leasure (+63) 10 years ago
I have recently engaged in what I'm calling Foodfight and have won my first battle.I contacted Mckee Foods (Little Debbie)and exposed the fact that Sodium Aluminum Phosphate is very unhealthy and they replied that they would give this info to their R&D dept.and try to come up with a healthy solution!Aluminum cookware is unhealthy as well so is Teflon.The aluminum in our deodorant is also unhealthy.I was going to contact Wrigley gum and thought the better of it for now as I am sure they are well aware of the dangers of Aspartame but to get into that this should be under politics and religion forum.What I will say though is if you chew gum or use artificial sweetners you are putting yourself at risk http://aspartame.mercola.com/ To tell you the truth if you were to gain a little knowledge about whats really in Most of our food you will get an understanding of why health problems such as cancer and many other illnesses are running rampant.The solution to this starts with each of you who are reading this,then your families,neighbors then the whole community!I am trying to get everyone woke up to these facts and to contact the food companies and local grocery stores.I went to my local grocery store and explained the dangers of Aspartame in the chewing gum and was told"thats how we make our money"!So $ are more important than the communities health,I've not done the reseach as to what gum is safe but there is a small percentage that is as I have heard.Wouldn't you want them to only sell the safe gum??The grocery stores need to get in this fight and demand they be supplied only with healthy foods as this is a very serious topic.Lets move on to Flouride please do the research and you will wonder why it's in your city water along with a few other chemicals and if you call your city water dept. and ask if its flouridated don't expect the truth and I know this for a fact.I can't go into detail here as a few know about "Small Towns'There is safety in numbers and it's time we join together and save our health and stop feeding the big Pharma industry!

I'm not giving up my Little Debbie snacks but it sounds like Health Canada might want me to.

Sodium aluminum phosphate and sodium aluminum sulfate is commonly found in baking powder including Kraft Calumet and Clabber Girl brands. It's interesting to note that Kraft sells an aluminum-free baking powder, "Magic Baking Powder", but it is only available in Canada.

Bob, Arm & Hammer baking soda apparently contains no aluminum so I'm not sure why you're avoiding that if aluminum is your concern.

Bob - grammar, punctuation, and spelling are important in written communication. People do not take you seriously if you come off as illiterate, even if you have important information to share.

Disordered thoughts create disordered communication. If you appear to be rambling and ranting rather than presenting logical arguments, you will treated as if you are rambling and ranting.

Wasn't it suspected that excessive exposure to aluminum might cause Alzeimer's?

You're worried that the sodium aluminum phosphate in Little Debbies' products is unhealthy? Really, that's a concern?? Guess I can relax and ignore the fat, sugar and God-knows-what preservatives. I feel better already.

There are those that believe that aluminum in antiperspirant causes both Alzheimer's and cancer based on a couple of studies that suggested a correlation. No proof of any causal link has ever been found though, and considering the number of people that use antiperspirant on a daily basis, it's unlikely that it has any significant effect.

I remember a brief panic over some kind of cooking pots due to the fear of aluminum leaching into food. I never used antiperspirant because when I tried it in high school, when it was new, I was allergic. Armpit rashes are embarrassing.

As for Little Debbie's, yeah, it's the miniscule amount of aluminum that is the worry.

Arsenic used to be permitted in baking powder until the evil government created the Food and Drug Act and banned it. Darn evil government, keeping us from being poisoned by greedy corporations.

But the market should be allowed to decide how much arsenic is in our baking powders, just as it should be allowed to decide how many fingers end up in our sausages.

True story - I had a discussion at work here with a conservative who was lamenting the evil USDA. I asked him if he'd ever heard of "The Jungle" - he had not. It was his contention that even if the USDA was useful THEN, it had obviously outgrown its use NOW. I'm not sure what mechanism he thought would enforce even the vestigal amount of food safety we have today instead of a government organization though - perhaps food faeries mounted on magical ponies.

The people who say the USDA or other government regulations are all evil, can not see into the future. They do not realize that in a free market, the pressure is always on to reduce costs and cut expenses. No one jumps in poisoning customers and maiming workers. It gradually deteriorates to those levels. This additive is a bit cheeper, we'll use some of it in the mix, then more then more until it is at toxic levels. Worker can fit more in the machines faster if this is adjusted, readjusted and finally left off and workers are losing fingers and arms. These anti-government ones do not see the only way to keep these atrocities from happening is to have an independent body setting most meet standards and enforcing them. Government is a good body to do this because they respond, all though slowly, to the public wants and needs. Accidents are happening so regulations increase, Corporations start having trouble in the world market, regulations can decrease or other regulations to balance the situation, tariffs and duties, can be enacted. Free enterprise has to be regulated to some extent or it deteriorates itself into the great depression of the 1930s.

Of all the government agencies out there, the USDA, by a wide margin, does the most good for the people with the little bit they receive.
