Poison Plus Poison Equals Poison
Betty Martini, D.Hum
| This last week in particular I've felt strongly that
I'd landed in a chemical war zone. I hesitate to say that every day I've
heard stories upon stories about people, from close friends to virtual
strangers, getting violently ill through the foods they'd indulged in,
snacks and meals alike. Nor were these stories limited to just the U.S.;
some of my friends in Europe and elsewhere have reported problems too.
I was in a quandary as to what I should write about this week regarding our sadly toxic world, ruled over by aspartame. I have to admit I couldnít settle on a single topic, so rather than one, this article will cover a duo of poisonous sources that are sickening people left and right: Pepsiís rejection of aspartame, and farm-raised fish.
The toxin thatís foremost in my mind today is the aspartame in Pepsi. For the uninformed, folks behind Diet Pepsi have announced that theyíre dropping aspartame from their product due to customer concern and a drop in profit. This is, unfortunately, not necessarily true, though it reads nice. They can say what they like, but the thing theyíre replacing it withironicallyis Splenda, another artificial sweetener being warned against. My big issue with Splenda is discussed in one of my articles from 2010, Bye-Bye Babies. Iíll steal some excerpts from myself later on, but first a brief explanation of the slightly controversial title: Itís not just a horrific moral issue related to the casual disregard of human life, but to use the stem cells to add flavoring to foods or to augment vaccines disgusts me, and it should you.
People have asked me which artificial sweetener I hate the most. Naturally, given my position in Mission Possible, itís definitely aspartame, but for the time being Iíd like to talk about Splenda, AKA sucralose. If I might quote Dr. James Bowen from May 2005, ďíSucralose is a molecule of sugar chemically manipulated to surrender three hydroxyl groups (hydrogen + oxygen) and replace them with three chlorine atoms. Natural sugar is a hydrocarbon built around 12 carbon atoms. When turned into Splenda it becomes a chlorocarbon, in the family of Chlorodane, Lindane and DDT. Ö Unlike sodium chloride, chlorocarbons are never nutritionally compatible with our metabolic processes and are wholly incompatible with normal human metabolic functioning.í
And then if I may be so bold as to quote myselfÖ
Remember that Splenda is also termed Sucralose. Read about that in Dr. Mercola's Sweet Deception, and other sites such as http://www.holisticmed.com/splendaresearch (ed. unfortunately this webpage no longer exists). Here is that sad list of adverse effects and an important summary from holistic med.
∑ Shrunken thymus glands (up to 40% shrinkage) (EO56)
∑ Enlarged liver and kidneys. (EO57 & E161)
∑ Atrophy of lymph follicles in the spleen and thymus (EO51, EO56, EO151)
∑ Increased cecal weight (E151)
∑ Reduced growth rate (EO57)
∑ Decreased red blood cell count (EO55)
∑ Hyperplasia of the pelvis (EO57)
∑ Aborted pregnancy (Maternal and Fetal Toxicity) (E134)
∑ Decreased fetal body weights and placental weights (EO32)
∑ Increase glycosylation of hemoglobin (HbA1c) for diabetics (E157) (Note: One of the effects of increased HbA1c is Cardiac Mortality.)
Splenda is simple chlorinated sugar. Common chlorocarbons like Splenda include carbon tetrachloride, trichlorethelene, and methylene chloride. These are all long words, but as the good Doctor Bowen stated, ďÖChlorine is natureís Doberman attack dog, a highly excitable, ferocious atomic element employed as a biocide in bleach, disinfectants, insecticide, WWI poison gas and hydrochloric acid.Ē
This same chemical toxin is being utilized today by Cambellís, Coca-Cola, Kraft, Nestlť, and of course the now infamous Pepsi-Cola.
So now they are adding Senomyx to Sucralose. Remember that Dr. Bowen also said when he wrote the above paper, that if you go from aspartame to Splenda you will maintain reactions to aspartame and pick up those from Splenda. With regard to reports on reactions from Splenda that is just what is happening. Poison plus poison equals poison and now this disgusting Senomyx is being added.
Senomyx doesnít stop just with Pepsi and Campbellís; it even works its way into vaccines.
(Note: the first two years of life [infants] receive 36 potentially life altering ingredients in their precious, innocent bodies.) Any reason the terrible twos seem worse, year after year? I recently had startling incidents on two occasions with three toddlers (different parents), letting out that non-stop piercing scream that no scolding, behavior modification, or comforting could stop. These awful sounds that have been created by horrible vaccines!
MSG, antifreeze, formaldehyde, aluminum, glycerin, lead, cadmium, sulfates, yeast proteins, antibiotics, acetone, neomycin, streptomycin, mercury, monkey kidney, dog kidney, chick embryo, chicken egg, duck egg, calf serum, aborted fetal tissue, pig blood, horse blood, sheep blood, rabbit brain, guinea pig, cow heart, etc!
But letís move onto the second chemical war thatís been on my mind a lot latelyone Iíve spent hours upon hours on, and even now Iíve not been able to break through it completely. Letís talk about fish farms.
Today I learned a new phrase in relation to fish farms: CAFO. Thatís ďconcentrated animal feeding operation,Ē and it refers to grouping farm animals together in uncomfortably close quarters with no way for them to get their own food, leaving them unhappy, stressed, and completely dependent on the farmers. I seem to have to experience everything I write about; perhaps itís my inspiration. Iíve gotten very ill twice over farm-fed fish raised through the CAFO method, and itís taken a lot of time (and generous amounts of Tulsi Tummy tea) to get myself back to normal.
I used to love fish more than beef or any other meat source. Nowadays, less so. Farm raised fish are fed pellets instead of things theyíd naturally eat (plankton, for instance). Itís almost impossible to find out exactly what goes into these pellets, but after many hours and dozens of phone calls, hereís some of the facts Iíve managed to uncover.
According to an article on purezing.com ( http://www.purezing.com/living/food_articles/living_articles_7salmon.htm ), these farm-raised salmon ingest disgusting pellets (chicken feces, GMO corn, and soy) and are filled with chemicals to make them look better. These salmon require more antibiotics and hormones simply to stay alive than any other animal raised via this method. Their cramped living spaces create a playground for disease and stress, while their lack of a natural diet impacts their biology in subtle ways, the ramifications of which radiate all the way up the food chain to us.
One of my ex-favorites in the seafood markets is tilapia. Itís one of the top-selling farm-raised fish. Naturally itís short on omega-3ís just like the salmon; in fact it suffers the same fates as the salmon above. All the nice-sounding pleasantries about tilapia being able to prevent or cure disease simply isnít true. Nowadays the fish is worse for you than bacon or even a hamburger.
It is rumored in Ann Martinís book Foods Pets Die For that there could even be roadkill used in some of these pellets. Itís hard to confirm, but given the amount of research and thoroughness she usually displays, Iím prone to trusting her judgment. We donít need this stuff in our bodies. This is rampant chemical destruction.
Visualize trying to catch a fish with your bare hands in a lice-infested pond. Theyíre going to do their best to run away from you. That sounds pretty wild, right? Consider that next time you consider ďAlaskan wild caughtĒ fish. Caveat emptor! The price of the product may be a hint, at the very least. If your fish is cheap, itís probably too good to be true.
Needless to say, I donít think Iíll be enjoying fish much ever again.
Iíd rather not leave you be with these problems, so let me instead leave you with some potential solutions. What do we do in the crossfire of these chemical wars?
I may sound a bit like a broken record, but first of all, eating out is never in your best interest. You have no idea what the chefs put in their dishes. Your kitchen is your best restaurant.
Try to avoid all processed foods. As far as Iím concerned, find the finest stores you can and check where the foodís coming fromproduce, meat, and grains alike.
Do research. Your body and your familyís bodies are paramount; treat them as such. Donít bless the mess and eat on the run and donít go looking for energy in all the wrong places. If youíre tired, your bodyís doing its best to tell you something is wrong.
Drink the purest of waters; examine Organic India and their excellent teas and spices. Lastly, if youíre a praying sort, praythatís the best solution you can find.
Let me leave you with some humorous thoughts for todayall anonymous quotes from Quips and Quotes (ed. McKenzie).
ďDonít forget that people will judge you by your actions, not your intentions. You may have a heart of goldbut so does a hard-boiled egg.Ē
ďThe kindness we resolve to show tomorrow cures no headaches today.Ē
ďWhen a man says he is going to do this or that tomorrow, ask him what he did yesterday.Ē
ďItís rather odd how temptation always seems to get action quicker than good intentions.Ē
Thank you for your time.
