Carcinogens such

1 . the aspartame or Nutrasweet (artificial sweetener) in sodas and many other products.... was originally developed by Donald Rumsfeld when CEO of Searle Pharmaceuticals as an ANTKILLER. It is a carcinogen which causes brain lesions.

2 . the caramel color in colas

3 . the styrene made when styrofoam
cups come into contact with heat,
tomato juice, lemon juice, or the
phosphoric acid in colas

4 . methylcholanthrene.. carcinogen
created by heating animal protein over 300 degrees

5 . malonaldehyde.. another carcinogen from heating
animal protein over 300 degrees

6 . nitrosamines... caused by red dye number 2 or sodium
nitrate combines with the animal protein of hot dogs,
sausages, and other meats

7 . the growth hormones given to captive animals which
cause prostate, cervical, breast, uterine, ovarian and other

8 . aluminum pots... one cause of Alzheimer's (along
with the amyloid plaque byproduct of meat metabolism)

9 . factory farmed salmon (America's unnaturally bred fish
are banned in Australia and New Zealand)

10. Arsenic in chicken food is in several brands given chicken. Pfizer and Perdue
have announced they have or are withdrawing the arsenic. Several other options
are available to farmers. Arsenic kills and is a known carcinogen. The European Union
never allowed its use. In Europe, butchers have less ontrol of legislatures.

In addition


Preservatives BHA and BHT

Dr Mercola writes that "BHA (butylated hydroxyanisole) and BHT (butylated hydroxytoluene) are preservatives in breakfast cereal, nut mixes, chewing gum, butter spread, meat, dehydrated potatoes, and beer, just to name a few. BHA is known to cause cancer in rats, and may be a cancer-causing agent in humans as well. In fact, according to the US Department of Health and Human Services, National Toxicology Program's 2011 Report on Carcinogens, BHA "is reasonably anticipated to be a human carcinogen.” It may also trigger allergic reactions and hyperactivity, while BHT can cause organ system toxicity.

The UK doesn't allow BHA in infant foods. BHA and BHT are also banned in parts of the European Union and Japan."

. genetically engineered papaya, banned by the European Union

. ractopamine, given US pigs and cows, is banned in ONE HUNDRED SIXTY
COUNTRIES 160 countries across Europe, Russia, mainland China and Republic of China (Taiwan)

. brominated vegetable oil (BVD) in Mountain Dew and other drinks was originally
patented as a flame retardant banned in Europe and Japan

. breads with potassium bromate are banned in Canada, the EU and China

. some food dyes are banned in Norway and Austria

. the UK and Canada have banned Procter and Gamble's Olestra (Olean),, a dangerous
fat substitute

Dr. Mercola writes in the link below

"More than 3,000 food additives -- preservatives, flavorings, colors and other ingredients -- are added to US foods, including infant foods and foods targeted to young children."

"Jell-O* and many kids' cereals contain red 40, yellow 5, yellow 6 and/or blue 2, the most popularly-used dyes in the United States. Research has shown this rainbow of additives can cause behavioral problems as well as cancer, birth defects and other health problems in laboratory animals. Red 40 and yellow 6 are also suspected of causing an allergy-like hypersensitivity reaction in children. The Center for Science in the Public Interest reports that some dyes are also "contaminated with known carcinogens.”

(Jello is gelatin from ground up cow, pig, sheep, chicken and other bones.)

MSG or monosodium glutamate, called a meat
tenderizer because it breaks down the muscle cells (as well as brain cells) is
allowed in our foods as 'natural flavor'.
