5 US 'Foods' Banned by the Rest of the World

Import fraud allowed by USDA

processed food is most likely tainted

"The unsettling reality is that despite food's cheery packaging and nutritional labeling, we don't really know what we're putting into our mouths." - E. J. Levy

The FDA establishes acceptable levels of "defects" for a range of food products, from allspice to peanut butter.

The list of allowable defects include "insect filth," "rodent filth" (both hair and excreta pellets), "mold," "insects," "mammalian excreta," "rot," "insects and larvae" (which is to say, maggots), "insects and mites," "insects and insect eggs," "drosophila fly," "sand and grit," "parasites," "mildew" and "foreign matter" (which includes "objectionable" items like "sticks, stones, burlap bagging, cigartte butts, etc.").

Tomato juice may average "10 or more fly eggs per 100 grams or five or more fly eggs and one or more maggots."

Tomato paste and other pizza sauces are allowed a denser infestation - 30 or more fly eggs per 100 grams or 15 or more fly eggs and one or more maggots per 100 grams.

Canned mushrooms may have "over 20 or more maggots of any size per 100 grams of drained mushrooms and proportionate liquid" or "five or more maggots two millimeters or longer per 100 grams of drained mushrooms and proportionate liquid" or an "average of 75 mites."

Curry powder is allowed 100 or more bug bits per 25 grams; ground thyme up to 925 insect fragments per 10 grams; ground pepper up to 475 insect parts per 50 grams. One small shaker of cinnamon could have more than 20 rodent hairs before being considered defective.

Peanut butter may contain approximately 145 bug parts for an 18-ounce jar; or five or more rodent hairs for that same jar; or more than 125 milligrams of grit.

processed food is addictive and causes obesity

Former FDA Commissioner David A. Kessler discovered that the combination of salt, sugar and fat in foods triggers a chemical change in people's brains that makes them crave more processed foods containing that same combination. Dr. David A. Kessler sees a parallel between the food industry and the tobacco industry - the food industry manipulates the salt-sugar-fat combination to induce a neurological response just as the tobacco industry manipulates the nicotine delivery systems.

processed food is not as nutritious

One the best examples of the way in which science was disregarded by the GW Bush administration is the way in which an advertising campaign was gutted to placate the processed food industry at the expense of the health of tens of millions of Americans.

The Health and Human Services Department had prepared a series of public service announcements touting the benefits of breast feeding.

Once the food processors that manufacture baby "formula" heard about the public service announcements they contacted GW Bush administration officials and had the public announcement campaign "softened."

Information based on scientific research that would have made it likely for women to chose breast feeding over "formula" feeding was withdrawn from the public service announcements at the behest of "formula" manufactures.

It is well known within the medical and scientific communities that babies that are breast fed are more healthy than those that are fed baby "formula." But unfortunately most American women do not have the information necessary to make the informed decision about breast feeding.

2006 Over a billion dollars worth of baby formula is sold in the US.

"Formula" fed infants are 72% more likely to develop asthma.

"Formula" fed infants are 64% more likely to develop intestinal problems.

"Formula" fed infants are 50% more likely to develop inner ear infections.

"Formula" fed infants are 40% more likely to develop diabetes.

"Formula" fed infants are 36% more likely to experience sudden death syndrome.

"Formula" fed infants are 20% more likely to develop childhood leukemia.

"The problem with formula companies is that they're marketing a product clearly inferior to breast milk." - Dr. Lawrence M. Gartner, American Academy of Pediatrics

1997 American Academy of Pediatrics issues a policy statement crediting breast milk with reducing the incidence or severity of bacterial infections, sudden infant death syndrome, diabetes, asthma, obesity and some cancers.

No formula can compete, nutritionally or immunologically, with something produced by eons of natural selection tailored to the precise needs of human infants.

On April 3, 2009 the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has found that 15 brands of infant formula are contaminated with perchlorate, an environmental toxin found in rocket and missile propellants. Two of the brands account for 87% of milk-based infant formula sales in the US Perchlorate is a potent thyroid toxin that may interfere with fetal and infant brain development. The study found that reconstituting the formula with water that has levels as low as 4ppb of perchlorate would cause 54% of infants to exceed "safe" dosage levels of the toxin.

Woman who do not breast feed put their babies in unnecessary risk !



chemical laced food


Michael Pollan calls for a new definition of food.

"Our national policies subsidize the least healthful calories. The "building blocks" of fast food are soy and corn, used to make hydrogenated soy oil, the protein and starch in cattle and chicken feed, and high fructose corn syrup used in sodas and sweets.

"That's what we've been heavily subsidizing, encouraging farmers to grow more of, and that's what makes fast food so cheap. Meanwhile over in the produce section, the head of broccoli costs more than a fast-food hamburger. Why is that? We do very little to encourage farmers to grow what are called specialty crops, which is actual food you can eat. We need to level the playing field between the unhealthy and healthy calories." - Michael Pollan

"What if we had a definition of food that said a food is something that doesn't just have calories but has a certain amount of nutrients and micronutrients? If your product did not reach a certain threshold of nutrients per calorie, it's just not food. We're not even going to call it junk food. We'll call it junk." - Michael Pollan

This website defines a new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has created a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race. Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the Way of Life - a rational gnostic mystery religion based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of Life are spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."

This web site in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already controls the world economic system, corporate media worldwide, the global industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on cooperation. Cooperation does not occur at the point of a gun.

American social mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior corporate media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.

All views and opinions presented on this web site are the views and opinions of individual human men and women that, through their writings, showed the capacity for intelligent, reasonable, rational, insightful and unpopular thought.
