Natural health movement achieving key victories
over HFCS, MSG, GMOs and more
(NaturalNews) It's hard to see it
sometimes, but the natural health community has achieved many important victories over the
last few years in exposing the truth about dangerous chemicals and food ingredients. Here
are some of the major victories we've collectively achieved:
High-Fructose Corn Syrup exposed
We've been victorious in spreading the
word about the dangers of high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS), which I call "liquid sugar
crack." The public has learned so much about the dangers of this refined ingredient
that food manufacturers are now
switching away from HFCS and using more natural
refined ingredients (such as evaporated cane juice, which is far better for you than HFCS).
You can even buy Hunt's Ketchup now, which declares right on the front label, "NO
High Fructose Corn Syrup!"
Not surprisingly, the Corn Refiners Association has spent millions of dollars
trying to obfuscate this issue by claiming HFCS is perfectly good for you. They've
attacked virtually every news organization that writes about HFCS, and they run television
ads that try to spin the issue in their direction, but they've failed! The public
still knows that HFCS is linked to diabetes
and obesity, and they don't want any more of this refined liquid sugar in their diets.
BPA - the plastics chemical
The truth has also come out recently about
the dangers of Bisphenol-A (BPA), also known as the "plastics
chemical." This chemical, which is found in virtually all canned foods (it's in the can liner), plastic
bottles and other plastic food
containers, has been found to be a "hormone disruptor," meaning it
interferes with the normal healthy functioning of the hormones that control your body
The outcry against BPA has even gone mainstream now, with mainstream news organizations
covering the issue with greater frequency. Momentum is clearly building in favor of
legislation that would outlaw BPA in all plastic food containers, and Canada seems poised
to add BPA to its list of toxic
The American Chemistry Council, of course, is outraged by any hint that chemicals might be bad for your health, and they'll continue to fight
any new legislation in the USA. But in
the end, the ACC will lose, because BPA is dangerous for your health and they can't
cover up the science forever.
MSG - the excitotoxin taste
We've also been victorious in a very big
way against MSG (monosodium glutamate), the chemical taste enhancer that's used in
sausage, beef jerky, salad dressings, gravy mixes, and all sorts of fast food. (It's found
in practically everything served at KFC, for example.)
While we haven't yet succeeded in banning MSG, we have raised awareness to such an extent
that even soup companies
are now competing with claims of having "No MSG" on their labels. As the public
learns even more about MSG, we can expect to see more food companies removing it from
Loophole: Many food companies are switching from MSG to yeast extract, which is a
"hidden" form of MSG that's used for the same purpose. If you are avoiding foods
made with MSG, be sure to avoid all foods made with yeast extract, too. I'm working on a
mini-documentary, by the way, that will expose the truth about this form of hidden MSG in
Trans Fats - the fat that kills
In addition to the items mentioned above,
the natural health community
has achieved considerable success in the battle against trans fatty acids -- also
known as "trans fats."
These are health-harming fats created
out of the process of hydrogenation of oils. When you see "partially
hydrogenated vegetable oil" on a food label, you know that item contains trans fats.
Trans fats are extremely dangerous for human consumption because they slowly promote
deadly degenerative diseases like heart disease
and cancer. They have absolutely no place in a healthy food supply. In time, they will
probably be banned altogether.
Vitamin D is the new "hero"
Through tireless efforts, members and
leaders of the natural health movement have succeeded in raising global awareness about
the amazing health benefits of vitamin D, the "miracle" nutrient that
prevents cancer, heart disease,
osteoporosis, diabetes, kidney disease, depression and much more.
Even sunscreens are now being exposed as toxic chemical lotions that block vitamin D
production and actually promote vitamin D deficiency!
Plus, the African American and Latino communities are learning more and more about vitamin D
deficiency and how their skin pigmentation makes them more vulnerable to such deficiencies
if they aren't intentionally working to increase their sun exposure.
Here's a very popular video I released that has been part of this education effort: http://naturalnews.tv/v.asp?v=5A62F...
More organics in retail stores
In the United States, Target stores now
carry a decent selection of USDA organic
fresh produce. Costco stores are increasingly carrying organic products, and conventional
stores that used to shun health foods now increasingly have "natural foods"
sections where people can find organic food items.
As consumers are becoming more aware of the dangers of chemicals in their foods (and the
benefits of organic foods), the surge in demand for organics is forcing nearly every food
retailer to offer a selection of organic items.
This is progress! Just a few years ago, the idea of finding organic strawberries at Target
stores would have seemed ridiculous.
Even Whole Foods, by the way, is improving its organics profile. For example, after
tremendous pressure from the Organic Consumers Association (www.OrganicConsumers.org),
Whole Foods declared that it would soon stop carrying "cheater" organic body
care products that have the word "organics" in their name but aren't really
organic at all.
I believe the natural health community
will achieve yet more significant victories in several important areas of public health.
Here's where you can expect to see a lot of progress in the years ahead:
Although this chemical has remained
difficult to remove from the food supply, the truth is getting out now about the real
dangers of aspartame, and it's only a matter of time before this artificial chemical
sweetener is fully exposed (and banned from foods and beverages).
Dr. Betty Martini, of course, has played a huge hand in spreading awareness about the
health dangers of aspartame. (http://www.mpwhi.com/main.htm)
Expect to see an end to the criminal act
of dripping a toxic, pharmacologically active chemical into the water supply without the consent of those
who consume it. The fluoridation of public water supplies is a public
health crime and it has absolutely no scientific justification whatsoever.
It is, though, a convenient way to dispose of chemical byproducts from heavy industry. That's where the chemical fluoride comes from that's dumped into
the water supply, by the way. Most fluoride chemicals purchased by cities for fluoridation
actually comes from China, and most of it is contaminated with heavy metals, by the way. (http://www.naturalnews.com/029477_f...)
Before long, you can expect to see this ridiculous chemical poisoning ritual banned across
more cities and nations around the world. We all have a right to safe water, and
fluoride makes water dangerous.

of public water supplies is a criminal act: http://www.naturalnews.com/028913_f...

Mercury is extremely toxic, and even the
American Dental Association can't hide that fact forever. Before too much longer, we will
see the ADA finally cave in on the issue of mercury and announce to its member
dentists that mercury is no longer an acceptable substance to use in dental fillings.
It's not just toxic to dentists and patients (and dentists suffer an unusually high rate
of madness due to mercury exposure, by the way); it's also an extreme risk to the
environment. Thousands of tons of mercury are released into the environment each
year due solely to the use of the toxic metal in modern dentistry.
And a lot of the credit for this victory, by the way, will be due to attorney Charlie
Brown from Consumers for Dental Choice (www.ToxicTeeth.org), who you will hear more from as this issue
Thanks in no small part to the work of
Jeffrey Smith (www.SeedsOfDeception.com),
there is growing awareness among health-conscious consumers about the extreme dangers of
consuming genetically modified foods.
The battle is still raging, and companies like Monsanto are pressuring the FDA to ban honest food labeling
that would warn consumers about GMOs in the grocery store, but in the end, the
"right-to-know" effort will be victorious. Consumers don't like being
hoodwinked, and they don't want to eat GM foods that might unleash pesticides in their own
This coming October 10, 2010 is a world day of grassroots GMO awareness. Watch for more
announcements on NaturalNews.com and SeedsOfDeception.com about that upcoming event.
Under the relentless pressure of stubborn
facts, the modern mythology behind seasonal flu vaccines is quickly crumbling away.
People are waking up to the fact that such vaccines are not merely worthless; but that they
often cause harm!
As people are learning more about vitamin D and how that nutrient activates the human
immune system to build its own antibodies against infectious disease, they are
increasingly rejecting chemical interventions such as painful vaccine shots (which can
cause convulsions, vomiting and permanent neurological damage).
This is a victory for public health, too, because the more people consciously boost their
levels of vitamin D and take care of their own immune systems, the less dangerous any
infectious disease outbreak will turn out to be.
My own recently released song, Vaccine Zombie (www.VaccineZombie.com) is also having an impact through an
entertainment approach. The song takes aim at the mindless mythology behind routine
vaccines and helps to de-hypnotize people from the mainstream programming of the CDC and WHO, which operates in collusion with the
Watch the video now at NaturalNews.TV:
Vaccines will probably never go away completely because there's always a profit to be had
from convincing people they need to take vaccine shots, but the more we help educate the
public about their own natural immune defenses against infectious disease (and how to
activate their immune systems with nutrition),
the less people will feel the need to turn to dangerous chemical interventions to protect
More victories on the way!
The natural health movement has gone mainstream! More and
more mainstream consumers now understand the dangers of toxic chemicals and the promise of
nutrition and natural remedies. Modern medicine as we know it today is on the way out, and
the age of "better living through chemistry" is thankfully coming to an end.Natural News,
The knowledge found in the natural health movement is winning out over the ignorance
preferred by Big Pharma and the FDA. Stay tuned to NaturalNews.com for news about yet more
victories in the near future. (
"To Achieve World
Government it is necessary to remove from the minds of men their individualism,
their loyalty to family traditions and national identification" Brock Chisholm - Director of the World Health Organization
"A society whose citizens refuse to see and investigate the facts, who refuse to
believe that their government and their media will routinely lie to them and fabricate a
reality contrary to verifiable facts, is a society that chooses and deserves the Police
State Dictatorship it's going to
get." Ian Williams Goddard
The fact is that "political
correctness" is all about creating uniformity. Individualism is one of the biggest obstacles in the way of
the New World Order. They want a
public that is predictable and conditioned to do as it's told without asking questions.
"The two enemies of the people are
criminals and government, so let us tie the second down with the chains of the
Constitution so the second will not become the legalized version of the first."
